Dr. Montes was born and raised in Oakland, California. One of 11 children, and the first to go to college, she obtained her undergraduate degree from Arizona State University, where she graduated magna cum laude. She then returned to California to attend medical school at the University of California at San Diego, and completed her residency at Kaiser San Francisco. She is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and speaks both English and Spanish.

After initially practicing in California and then in New York, Dr. Montes moved to the Hickory area in 1990 with her husband, Mark Sakatos, and their twins Matthew and Sarah. She began working at A Woman’s View in 2011. After 40 years of full time devotion to the practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology, she has now pulled back to part time work. She is currently practicing only gynecology and is also managing the “Why Weight” weight loss program here at A Woman’s View. She’s a perfect fit for this new role, having previously run a successful weight loss program of her own.

Now with more time on her hands and a good night’s sleep she will be able to fully engage with her many hobbies including sewing, jewelry making and her current passion, making soap. She will miss those wonderful and memorable births and wants to thank all of her patients for allowing her to have had a part in this very personal occasion in their life. Each and every delivery has had an impact on her as well and she thanks you for 4 decades of incredible memories.

Hysteroscopy

Excellent communication and detailed about the next step in my health.

Endometrial Biopsy

I was registered quickly by a friendly receptionist, and I'd barely sat down before being taken back for the procedure. Dr. Montez is not only a professional, but she is also caring. She informed me about every step of the procedure, in addition to potential issues I might experience post procedure. Dr Montez answered questions, and I was out of the facility shortly thereafter. Excellent care.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Best doctor

Annual Well Woman Exam

Before and after my exam my doctor took the time to talk to me and gave me the opportunity to ask questions.

Gynecological Exams

Dr. Montes was great as well as the staff. The only thing I feel could have been different is a little more information on what I should expect for the days following my procedure. I didn't get much information. I am still spotting and the first few days, activities would increase my discomfort so I felt I had to decrease my activity level for a while.
