Dr. Erica Montes is a Board-Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist and a Fellow of the American College of OB/GYN. She received her medical degree from the University of Texas Health Center in San Antonio and completed her residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center-Parkland Hospital where she was elected one of three chief residents at the largest program in the nation. She is proud to be one of the few Latina physicians in the United States and hopes her work and visibility can decrease some of the health care disparities seen in her community. She is bilingual in English and Spanish.
For the last 10 years, Dr. Montes has practiced in Arizona with an emphasis on patient engagement, encouraging all patients to be active in their health care decisions. She is robotically trained on the daVinci Robotic Surgical System and excels in minimally invasive surgical procedures and in-office procedures. Medical interests include contraception, treatment options for abnormal uterine bleeding, and gynecologic surgery. She also believes preventative care is one of the most important aspects of medicine including immunizations, for which she was awarded “Arizona Big Shot” in 2014 by the Arizona Partnership for Immunization.
She is also the mama to three beautiful boys who keep her grounded, as well as a medical blogger and the creator of The Modern Mujer Women’s Health Blog. Her vision to create this blog started soon after delivering her third son and realizing that there are not many places on the internet for people to find expert information about their health, let alone in English and Spanish! The foundation for her blog combines her medical knowledge, life experiences, and approachable personality to create a safe space to learn about your body.
