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

Best surgeon I have seen - was there for a second opinion, he listened to me, explained in detail everything, showed me pictures on his computer of what to expect, and did not embellish. I am definitely looking forward to get this pain done and recommend Dr. Antoci to everyone

He is such a good looking fellow and so kind. I had a hip replacement and can not stop smiling at how well I am doing. He won the doctors dance competition and I am ready to go dancing too. Best doctor in Rhode Island!

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..
