Dr. Antunes and his staff, especially Eva Martin, Diabetes Educator, has helped me SO much! My A1C has improved 3 points since being in their care. I completely trust the information, guidance and support that I continually receive and I highly recommend this team to anyone seeking to greatly improve and manage their Diabetes challenges!

Dr. Antunes and his team, particularly his nurse practitioner that took my new patient history and managed my test orders /prescriptions, were so efficient we were able to determine a course of treatment within in minutes. I appreciate a doctor that is pleasant but direct.

I have been struggling to get my diabetes under control for a few years. In just a couple of weeks of being in Dr Antunes care i feel like there is hope to improving my health. My numbers are already improved. His ARNP Jill and educator Eva are very informative and helpful. His office staff are friendly.

No bedside manner, Bad communication skills, unable to explain in layman's terms what the issue was or to rate how bad / good it was relative to others. Uninterested in connecting me with further experts to help - suggested I look on a website to fins a doctor. very dis-connected with me, showed little compassion or interest in my condition. My GP actually recommended I have another opinion before any action.

I had an appointment in July for blood work for my synthyroid. Called into Sams club 1 3month script. Called his office to have him call in another script. Said I had to been seen in office before he would call in another script........why? Pay 280.00 every 3 months for a script. That's fraud! My Obio Doctor only did my blood work once a year unless something came up. Gave me a year supply script. The Doctor never even said much to me.
