I had severe numbness and pain in my right arm. Dr. Antezana is amazing! I was scheduled for my fusion surgery right away. His bedside manner was wonderful and he did a fabulous job with my surgery. Seven weeks post op and I have been pain free and no numbness since I woke up from surgery. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.
Hello Jessica, we are thrilled to hear that you had such a fabulous experience with Dr. Antezana. Thank you for taking the time to write this review - The Oregon Clinic

The office will not schedule you promptly. They did It took over a month and a half after they received my MRI and finally an upset phone call to get any reaction from this office. He may or may not be a good Dr. But if his staff and office are any representation then this must be the bottom of the barrel.

I suffered thirty years of back pain, numbness, tingling, muscle irritability. I've had multiple surgeries performed by highly skilled physicians. Two years ago Dr Antezana implemented spinal reconstruction correcting neurological and orthopedic problems with my spine. The surgery was massive and recovery lengthy. The doctor had made all of these effects clear prior to the procedures. Two years post-surgery I am able to pursue all of the activities I value, a testimony to DrAntezana's skill

Dr. Antezana and his staff are absolutely amazing. The care I received is second to none. I was well informed about the surgery including possible complications and side affects. Dr. Antezana and staff truly care about their patients.

Absolutely Stellar Surgeon. This was my second surgery for pain relief in my arm caused by stenosis in my neck. He is the kindest, most professional caring Doctor you could hope to find.
