Patient-first approach helps Everett doctor provide custom care

Western Washington Medical Group

Dr. Vince Montes came to study at the University of Washington in 2009 and loved it here so much he decided to call Snohomish County home. He’s raised his kids here and firmly put down roots.

Hailing from the dry desert in the southwestern United States didn’t jive well with Dr. Montes’ passion for boating and being on the water. But the Pacific Northwest, with its abundance of water, “is a dream come true,” he says.

It’s this love for his community that drives Dr. Montes’ work, too. “The most rewarding thing is to help people in the community I love.”

Exceptional care

After spending time as a researcher in his field at the university, and continuing to teach there, Dr. Montes’ entered private practice in 2015. After five initial years as a hospital physician he now chooses to practice independently to provide patients with more resources and exceptional care.

He has devoted his career to caring for his patients in his field of speciality, endocrine and metabolic disorders, and especially diabetes, at Western Washington Medical Group.

Prevention and care are key to controlling many conditions, and Dr. Montes and his staff understand and believe in the importance of comprehensive, conscientious, compassionate care that fits the individual.

Specialist care is essential

Diabetes is a condition that affects many people and is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood. For many folks dealing with what they think might be Type II diabetes is a big challenge when it might actually be Type I diabetes. Formerly known as “juvenile diabetes,” this condition can manifest at any age and it does not necessarily only appear in childhood. This makes a big difference in the approach to care and management of the condition and emphasizes why specialist care is essential.

For those dealing with Type II diabetes, a common misconception is that it means always dealing with medication, but with the right care and a management plan that includes nutrition and exercise, the condition can be reversed – without surgery in some cases.

Dr. Montes knows that getting blood sugar under control is a game-changer for his patients, allowing them to live their best lives.

Other hormone-related health issues

While diabetes is an all-too-common condition, many other hormone-related health issues can require specialized medical attention. Western Washington Medical Group Endocrinology provides expert care for thyroid and adrenal issues, osteoporosis, metabolism, sex hormones and low testosterone.

They strive for care with a personal touch and provide excellent patient outcomes and high patient satisfaction.

Western Washington Medical Group is conveniently located at 8423 Mukilteo Speedway, #102, Mukilteo, WA 98275.
