Patient Comments (15)
Bourbonnais, IL |
Dr. Antkowiak was easy to work with. He and his staff answered all my questions and calls promptly and to my satisfaction throughout my pre-operative and post-operative treatment. Additionally, I received appropriate care from the referrals provided from Dr. Antkowiak. I waited to write my review until the end of the series of appointments covered by my insurance and am pleased with the results.
in Onarga IL |
Dr. Antkowiak was patient, answered all my questions prior to my shoulder surgery to repair a rotator cuff tear. He, and his office staff, were helpful, friendly and courteous. The results of my surgery have been excellent at this 5-week mark.
in Clifton,IL |
Have been very pleased with Dr. Antkowiak. He did a top notch reverse shoulder replacement on me 3 years ago. Healed perfect. Very successful. No pain. Seeing him for other shoulder now. Again very professional. Treats people well. Caring, kind and considerate. My husband,thinks highly of him as well. We had other opinions and did not care for the other doctors we saw.
in Braidwood, IL |
My sibling had a positive experience and recommended Dr Antkowiak to me. I agree with her 100% after my first appointment.

Understand concerns about problems
in Bourbonnais, IL |
Dr. Antkowiak is an extremely competent and skillful Orthopedic Surgeon. Professional, kind, caring and very knowledgeable. I had an anterior hip replacement and the outcome was perfect. I was up and moving pain free one day after the surgery. Recovery time was truly amazing. Thanks to this extraordinary talented doctor I went from a pain-filled existence to pain-free living. I can’t speak more highly of him, he was outstanding, I recommend him and his staff without reservation.
in Tinley Park, IL |
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Antkowiak, he operated on my shoulder and subsequently on my hip. My quality of life was restored both times. He is an excellent, caring, and very personable doctor. I highly recommend him. I feel truly fortunate that I went through my problems with Dr. Antkowiak and his wonderful staff.
in Grant Park, IL |
Dr Antlowiak was wonderful. He has an excellent bedside manner. Takes time to answer all your questions. And he even laughed at my jokes right before they put me out for surgery. I had the anterior approach full hip replacement surgery. I highly recommend him. If I was told that I needed another hip or other bone related surgery I would go back to him.
in Bourbonnais, IL |
He's a great guy!! Very friendly and very professional! He was very easy to talk to....they don't come any better!!
in Tinley Park, IL |
Dr. Antkowiak is an excellent Doctor. He's very professional and personable. I had a total knee replacement and all the nurses and therapists were amazed on just how fast I had recovered. I was up and walking (without a walker, cane or crutches) about 2 weeks after surgery (and my knee ended up being quite the challenge). They were also impressed on the perfect incision and staple line and of how clean my wound was (never had oozing). I highly recommend Dr. A to anyone.
in Bradley, IL |
Dr. Antkowiak is very easy to talk to and is very considerate. Explains procedure well and my over all experience was fabulous. Would recommend him to anyone that needs the surgery I had.
When I first met Dr. Antkowiak (Dr. A), he was friendly and was professional. He knew exactly how to solve my problem and maintained the integrity of my natural 'joint' . My surgery was quick, and recovery had no problems. I wish I had met Dr Antkowiak 10yrs ago !! Also, He is the only Doctor who gives you his CELL # (or Text) when you need him, wow !
in New Lenox, IL |
Very professional, personable and really knows his stuff. I would recommend Dr. A to anyone. Simply the best medical experience I ever had.
in Manteno, IL |
Very personable, easy to understand. Went over all options and answered all questions. Would highly recommend him. OAK is lucky to have him.
in Ashkum, IL |
He was on top of his game - I had hip trouble for months and had x rays and MRI's and the previous doctor could not find anything - Dr. A took an xray from a different angle and saw the problem. Was a fantastic surgeon and is friendly and through. I am very impressed with Dr. A and would recommend him as a surgeon to anyone!
