I am a patient of Dr. Antony. I have found him to be very competent. But, also importantly, he is sincere and has made me feel he was genuinely concerned about my problem/pain. He has gone out of his way to help me find a solution. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Antony proved to be a very knowledgeable doctor. After diagnosing my problem (spinal stenosis, he proceeded with my treatment in a stepwise and conservative manner. He listened and fully responded to my questions.

If you have a temporary pain issue Dr. Antony might be the right physician for you. However, if you have permanent pain. He will likely want to give 800 mg Ibuprofen or maybe .5 Loratab. Then he makes you feel as if he doesn't even want to treat you. If you have a debilitating pain issue he is not the doctor you want to go see

Dr. Antony is great, he listens, he is pleasant, he cares, he is easy to talk and listen to. I never feel rushed at my appointments. He has given me more relief than I have ever imagined, after years of chronic back pain. he quickly identified my problem, performed a minimally invasive outpatient procedure and I am getting along better than I ever expected. I totally trusted him the first time we met.
