Just trust him
I saw his PA for a complex knee problem after a total knee replacement somewhere else. Chloe took her time, ordered labs, bone scan, and then had me see Dr. Antoci after the studies were complete. Dr. Antoci listened to me, asked for my thoughts, was able to pinpoint a couple possible problems, and I had full faith in him. I hear he is one of the top revision surgeons in the state. I even had a second opinion in Boston and they told me that he is the best. I am now 6 weeks from surgery, and my hip does not hurt. I can get in and out of the car without crying, am back to exercising, and living my life.

Magician
I have been reading the comments. Hip whisperer. I say hip magician. I am very thankful to be back to work at less than 4 weeks from surgery. I am driving, back to the gym, no pain. Dr Antoci, his secretary, his PA Chloe, even the residents - a great team. Don’t listen to the naysayers who leave reviews and did not even have surgery. Best surgeon period.

Brand new knee replacement
Saw Dr. Antoci for 2 weeks after total knee arthroplasty - I am amazed. He has been the best from first appointment, the surgery was without a hitch, his team is phenomenal. About an hour after the surgery, physical therapy got me up and walking. Went home the same day. Drove to the appointment today, only using a cane for balance (don't use it around the house), I am so excited and thankful. Dr. Antoci literally gave my life back. He asked that I live a review - thank you thank you thank you and God bless you! I cannot say enough nice things.

Best doc I know
Dr. Antoci is the best. He carefully discussed my situation, he showed me the x-rays, he had two students with him taking notes, and everybody was just impressive. The building was impressive. The front desk and staff was very nice. The waiting area was so busy - so many people waiting to see Dr. Antoci. I see some reviews saying they had to wait - I had to wait 4 hours at my other doctor last week.... so 45 minutes for Dr. Antoci was not bad at all. It just tells me he is the best. He did my friend's total hip last summer and he was on the golf course a couple weeks later. Thank you for seeing me

Terrible Experience
Over the course of 6 months met with his PA on a few occasions, and wasted my time agreeing to cortisone and gel treatments when it was clear all along I needed two replacements. Finally got an appointment with Dr. Antoci. After waiting 2 plus hours in the waiting room, I was finally called into an exam room. The doctor came looking frazzled, and spent less than 5 minutes, with me. He then asked a nurse to weigh me. He returned a short time later and told me to come back when I lost 30 lbs. I started to explain why that would be difficult, but he immediately cut me off before I could explain my weight issue and said once curtly said, come back when you lose the weight. I never got to ask why I hadn't been told months earlier by the PA about the weight restriction. I would think twice before going to University Ortho. My advice, look into RI Ortho at South County Hospital. I am so very pleased with the entire team and delighted with my surgeon.

GET A SECOND OPINION
Dr Antoci and his secretary were the most unprofessional medical personnel I’ve ever encountered. After mistakes they made, they were unwilling to fix the problems they created leaving me to schedule my surgery with another facility. Get a second opinion and avoid this doctor and his rude staff!

What a great man! I came in with knee pain, he diagnosed it right away as "hemarthrosis" put a needle and got a pint of blood out, and I'm doing much better. Not only that, but then he called next day to make sure I am doing better. Love you Dr. Antoci!

Dr. Antoci is the hip wizard! I am three weeks post total left hip replacement and walking pain free. Ay day 10, I was able to use a cane and now at day 20, I can cruise around my home assistance-free including going up and down stairs. I use the cane just in case when I’m outside or going for a short errand. I highly recommend Dr. Antoci if you are considering this surgery. He listens to what you anticipate is a realistic outcome and advises, does not push, you make the decision best for you. If you decide to have surgery, you’ll I feel like you’re driving a new car .... every step is a smooth ride!

It took around 8 weeks and two visits with his PA to see the Dr.. I was very disappointed with him. He seemed to just want to get away. Entire time with him less than 5. It seemed like I was bothering him. I now have an amazing Dr who looks you in the eye, talks to you and doesn't want to escape. I never will recommend him or want him treating me or my friends and family

Dr. Antoci was very thorough at all meetings. There's usually a long wait in the office, but he still addressed all my questions. Sometimes things feel a bit rushed, but my surgery went so well, his team was fantastic, Ana was very helpful setting everything up, and Danielle is the most carrying assistant doctor I have ever met. Recommend without any reservations - I can ride my motorcycle again this Summer! Now only if everyone would be as great as Dr. Antoci

I had hip pain for years. My other doctor said to "wait it out until I'm a little older". Dr. Antoci tried PT and cortisone shot therapy, but once it became obvious it wasn't going to help we scheduled a total hip replacement. within 5 months of my first appointment, we had tried less aggressive methods, scheduled necessary surgery, and had the operation. One month after the surgery I am walking comfortably doing everything I could do before and have NO PAIN! excellent experience and results.
