Dr. Antezana is what I think a doctor should be. He's kind, caring witty, personable, extremely competent, & explains things in an easy-to-understand way. He's respectful of my opinions and choices regarding my health care needs. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a good spinal neurosurgeon.

With quick thinking and decision-making, Dr. Antezana saved my life after a hemorrhagic stroke , so my family and I will never forget him. I now walk mostly without a cane and have some use of my left side.

I waited almost 6 mo. for my appt with this Dr.I have severe scoliosis with spinal fusion from T1-T12 , herniated disc‘s, several fractures from my neck down to my tailbone, nerve impingement, narrowing of the nerve canal in many vertebrae and debilitating pain.He did not even open my file but stated I was too big of a risk for him to operate on and kind of grunted that no one would probably consider it and told me I have the spine of a 90 yr old. Rude, cocky and a robot personality.

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.

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.

Pain in the back in Portland, OR – Oct 26, 2016

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

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.
