Orange County Heart Surgeon Dr. Erick L. Montero, MD

Born and raised in South America, Dr. Montero knew at an early age that he would someday become a doctor. He followed the footsteps of his maternal grandfather, who was a small town, very dedicated and charismatic physician and surgeon. Dr. Montero's passion for cardiac surgery was the result of a wonderful mentorship and friendship by an exemplary cardiac surgeon and human being, during medical school.
