VIPcare has some exciting news coming out of our Polk County clinic. We have added another primary care provider to our care team, Dr. Clary Montalvo. We are thrilled to have Dr. Montalvo join our Lakeland clinic.
She brings over 10 years of experience practicing medicine and was the chief resident of her internal medicine program
Who is Dr. Clary Montalvo?
Growing up, Dr. Montalvo was told by her mother, “if you have good health, you have everything.” This notion has helped mold Dr. Montalvo into the practicing physician she is today.
“This has always been my goal with every one of my patients,” she said, “keep them as healthy as possible so they can have a good life and enjoy their families.”
Dr. Montalvo was born and raised in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. And knew in elementary school she was going to enter the field of medicine, blending her love for science and her desire to help people. Then, during her senior year of high school, Dr. Montalvo participated in a summer medical immersion program created by the Fundacion Dr. Garcia Rinaldi. It was this experience that truly pushed her to become a physician.
She earned her medical degree from the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara-School of Medicine in Jalisco, Mexico, and completed her residency at Mayaguez Medical Center in Puerto Rico.
Upon completing her residency, Dr. Montalvo headed to Florida to begin her medical career. “I love that it helps answer a lot of the unknowns in this world,” she said.
Dr. Montalvo strives to improve the quality of life in her patients, and she achieves this by focusing on quality rather than quantity. “I want my patients to feel they are being taken care of when they come to the office,” she said.
When she isn’t seeing patients, you can find Dr. Montalvo spending time with her family. She has three children, two boys and a girl. And something many don’t know, she makes a green salsa that’s to die for, thanks to her Mexican mother-in-law sharing her family cooking secrets with her.
