Undergraduate Education: Baylor University | Waco, TX

Biography: Dr. Lopez was born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry at Baylor University in Waco, TX, and then moved to the northeast for her medical training at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY, and subsequently UConn Family Medicine Residency in Hartford, CT where she was chosen as Chief Resident during her final year. While she has always had an interest in medicine, it was during medical school that she developed a passion for primary care because of the ability to form long-term relationships with people from all walks of life and the chance to help them achieve their healthcare goals.

She has many areas of interest in medicine including LGBTQ medicine, mental health and women’s health. During residency, she helped develop LGBTQ curricula and taught her colleagues and medical students about the healthcare needs of these patients. She also worked to start a gender clinic to improve access to care for transgender patients. Due to her work with this underserved population as well as her passion for health equity, she was recognized with the Social Justice in Medicine award from her residency program.

Dr. Lopez continues to practice broadly and is excited to be a part of the Community Health Alliance family.

Personal Interests: During her free time, Dr. Lopez loves traveling and experiencing new cultures. She is a transplant to the west coast and is looking forward to exploring all that the Reno-Tahoe area has to offer. She is an avid reader and creative writer. She also enjoys cooking for friends and family. When not at work, you can find her playing board games, watching movies with her partner, and spending time with her pets.

4-year-old had lots of cavities!

“My 4-year-old had lots of cavities and I went to different offices for different opinions. Many offices wanted a lot of money and to put her to sleep. Dr. Montoya worked with my daughter to help her feel safe and make her be still so she could do the work while she was awake. Nowhere else would even try. My daughter actually enjoys the dentist now, and all five of my daughters are all better brushers now from talking and learning from Dr. Montoya. She is a blessing.”


I am now receiving equal if not better care than ever.

A long time ago I had money & great health insurance. That was a long time ago! But I discovered Community Health Alliance who took me in on a sliding fee scale. I am now receiving equal if not better care than ever.

Thank you for being my doctor!

Your clinic helps so many people and moves them through very efficiently.  I never mind waiting because I know you are helping someone.  And, when you come in to see me you always give me your full attention, as if I am your only patient.  Your good will and positive intent always shine through. Thank you for being my doctor.
