Dr. Stephen is very kind, listens well, communicates well, and has great bedside manner. I feel she did a great job with my surgery. Her staff and MGH hospital were top notch. I would highly recommend.

Dr. Stephen was friendly yet informative, explaining things simply & clearly and then getting into details when asked. I felt very comfortable in her hands, and she & her staff were always professional & helpful. She personally spoke with my family right after my surgery and then also spoke with me after I had recovered a bit (in addition to multiple visits from one of her residents while I was in the recovery area). The incision was small & the scar very thin; it healed well. Highly recommend!

Dr. Antonia Stephen is nothing short of incredible. My surgery went so smoothly and my incision site is barely noticeable. I recovered quickly and felt very informed and supported throughout the entire experience.

I traveled thru not one...but two blizzards the week that Dr. Stephen performed my partial thyroidectomy. Let me just say that I would have gone thru 10 blizzards! She is one of the most genuine, kind, and professional physicians that I have had the pleasure to meet! Not only did I get the best care at MGH, but Dr. Stephen made this really scary time manageable. I will never forget how she held my hand until the anesthesiologist successfully put me to sleep. I am so thankful I chose Dr. Stephen

Dr. Stephen is truly wonderful. We traveled from Maine to have our son (14) seen by her for thyroid cancer surgery. He had a complicated presentation. She presented information clearly and compassionately. She took the time to connect with us as well as my son. I will forever be grateful to her.

I knew I needed to have parathyroid surgery and I had met with another surgeon prior to meeting Dr Stephen. I knew very soon during my first visit with Dr Stephen that she was the right surgeon for me. I had prepared a list of questions prior to my visit and she was answering them all. What really impressed me was when she said it was more important to do the surgery right than to do it quickly in reference to a website that claimed the procedure should be quick.
