"What struck me about City of Hope was just how happy both the physicians and patients are.”
Long before Jeremy Montez, M.D., became a doctor, he was taking care of patients.
A native of the Bay Area, Dr. Montez worked as a hospital orderly and scrub technician while studying biology at University of California Santa Barbara. After college, he trained as a physician's assistant and found himself treating patients at a Level I trauma center. “Each experience left me with the gratification of being able to help patients with their medical care,” he says, “but also motivated to continue my training to better serve them.”
He went on to earn his medical degree at Keck School of Medicine of USC, and also completed his internship and residency at USC, receiving multiple honors along the way.
As a surgeon/urologist, Dr. Montez is committed to taking care of all his patients' needs. He's especially excited to be working at City of Hope.
“City of Hope not only has world-class physicians and facilities, but at their core, a dedicated group of individuals working as a team to make the lives of their patients better,” he says. “It’s an organization I am thrilled to be a part of.”

Dr. Montez provided a wealth of information regarding my condition and options going forward, and discussed the potential of different scenarios. I only wish I had thought to ask if I could record our conversation, so I could review it in detail later. - Verified patient
