Robert P. Montenegro, M.D., ABOM
Family Medicine with Bariatrics
Dr. Montenegro grew up in the Philippines in a time where Martial Law was imposed. In an effort to create the best life possible, he decided to enter the field of medicine. With a number of opportunities along the way to practice what he calls 'true medicine ideals', Dr. Montenegro brought his experiences and background to Glacial Ridge Health System in 2002.
The Glenwood community's proximity to the cities has allowed him a very active life that still offers the peace and quiet that you can expect in a rural setting. The area has also provided him with a number of opportunities along the way that he
may not have seen in a more urban hospital.
Dr. Montenegro's education is from West Visayas State University in the Philippines where he took his knowledge to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for specialized training in a number of medical procedures, aspects of family medicine and obstetrics. His residency was at a US Air Force Hospital. This setting allowed Dr. Montenegro a great deal of hands-on experience as opposed to many other residency programs.
Dr. Montenegro is board certified in Family Medicine and Bariatrics and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM). He received specialized training in Idaho from Medical Bariatrics of America—founded by board certified Bariatric physician and a recognized national expert, Dr. Allen Rader. Dr. Montenegro began a certified Medical Weight Loss Clinic at GRHS following Dr. Rader's nationally renowned program. For more information about GRHS' Medical Weight Loss Clinic, click here.
Dr. Montenegro lives in the community with his wife and two sons. They love to spend time as a family watching sporting games and participating in school activities.
