Despite the COVID19, Dr. Antoci and his office continue to take care of patients. I was anxious going in, but they do their due diligence to make me safe, lots of social distancing precautions. And the best - I scheduled and then had my total knee at Kettle Point! Did not have to go to the hospital with all the patients with corona. The Kettle point experience was amazing, very private and one on one. I'm 1 week out and back to my life, better than before. Thank you!!!!!!

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.

Dr. Antoci performed a total knee replacement on me at the end of October, 2018. Thanks to his surgical skills and expertise, my quality of life has greatly improved, my mobility has returned and I no longer experience knee, hip and lower back pain. Dr. Antoci is a true professional, yet he is very personable and a good listener. He answered every question I asked and addressed my concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Antoci..

1 year ago I had a hip replacement with Dr. Antoci and I can honestly say I forgot about it except for the message that my follow up appointment is coming up. I saw him at their new offices - man what a view - he was smiling, my hip is like new. Thank you, thank you, thank you

It's like going to the theater, always a crowd at the office, and always a long wait, but I think it's worth it. If you got real complains, he listens. I have had him spend 5 minutes with me one time and almost an hour another time based on the time needed to convey the message. Ultimately, he was the one to do my knee replacement, and if not for the rain today I would be on the golf course. This guy knows what he is doing

I was extremely disappointed at my visit with Dr. Antoci. I have had severe knee problems for years and put off this visit because I am very busy. Dr. Antoci diagnosed me before seeing any of my medical history or even meeting me. He walked into the room with 3 sheets of paper for runners knee exercises and placed his hands on my knee for 30 seconds to feel around. He didn't have me stand or test for lack of mobility. He spent less than 5 minutes in the room and didn't even listen to me.

Dr. Antoci performed hip replacement surgery on me less than one month ago. I am a new man. Prior to surgery, I could barely walk even with a cane. Today, I am free of pain, need no walking assistance, and am back at the gym. I highly recommend Dr. Antoci, not only for his surgical skill, but also for his approachable and caring demeanor.

I am so thankful that I was able to be seen by Dr. Antoci so quickly. I have had pain in my right hip for the past 2 years due to arthritis and could no longer prolong surgery. On May 9, 2018, Dr. Antoci performed my hip replacement surgery and even though it has only been 3 weeks I am so thankful to Dr. Antoci for allowing me to walk more comfortably and without arthritis pain! Thank you Dr. Antoci for your wonderful personality and your healing hands!

His reputation in the community is impeccable. I was worried that he looks so young but it must be the 5 miles he told me he ran that morning. I am a runner myself but cannot do it anymore. I am looking forward to a total hip and am confident that I am in the best hands in the area.

I have been struggling with a bad knee for the last couple years, literally on crutches when I called to get an appointment. I was at Shaws and the cashier told me about Dr. Antoci. From the moment he walked in the room smiling to now 3 weeks from a knee replacement, I can't be more thankful. I am getting my life back. Right after surgery I felt better than before the surgery just like he told me. Best scores for Dr. Antoci... and he's a dancer too!

I had a very complicated problem with my hip. Other orthopedists strongly recommended Dr. Antoci Jr. do my surgery. The orthopedic residents who assist him in the OR said his surgical skills are outstanding. His colleagues were right; I had an excellent outcome, now walking without a cane or a limp. He listened well and was empathetic. I fully understood his answers to all of my questions. I trusted him and was confident that I had found the right orthopedist..
