Excellent treatment good results and the people at kettle point were phenomenal! I am nine days into a total hip replacement and getting around very well with Cane and very little pain. Doctor Antoci was great! No hesitation in having my second hip done

Thank you for my knee revision, nobody else felt comfortable touching another surgeon's work, my knee is finally good and you saved my leg. Only surgeon in Rhode Island who has the expertise for such revision surgeries. I am lucky to have found the right doctor.

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!

I did my total knee at Kettle Point and was very impressed with the entire team and especially the attention that Dr. Antoci took to the post-op care, the phone calls after, and the quick recovery. I'm dancing again!

Great surgeon, had a total hip at Kettle Point and was home right after lunch. Dr. Antoci stopped by next day to check on the wound and help me move around the house. Great job, great team, great group!

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..

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.
