Why didn't you tell me you moved?  I went to your previous location on So. Cty. Trail.  Fortunately I met a person in the parking lot who directed me to your current location.

Dr. Antoci was fantastic!  He listened to my concerns and questions. I felt like I was having a conversation with a good friend.

Dr. Antoci is truly a professional caring and top notch doctor. He takes the time to talk to you and explain your situation. He is very detailed and considerate while encouraging physical therapy to aid in the healing process. I rated him a 10 because he earned it and deserves it.

I have been completely happy with Dr. Valentin Antoci since I first met him on August 25 2017 and continue to recommend him to any and all who ask about my total hip replacement surgery.  I hope I never have to have my left hip replaced but if I do I will demand Dr. Antoci.

Dr. Antoci exceeded all of my expectations!  I am an independent thinker and often find doctors are either on autopilot or dismissive.  Dr. Antoci was neither.  He engaged with me as an intelligent human being with fears questions and concerns.   He had reviewed my films and prior doctor notes and was able to speak to me immediately about relevant care and tips on physical therapy to ensure my artificial hip does not dislocate again.  I look forward to continuing my follow up care with him.

Please note that in the past I had good to poor experiences at University Orthopedics and did not plan to return.  I will now highly recommend Dr. Antoci and your office.

He explained the need for a hip injection and I agreed with that.  But I wanted to be put to sleep because of bad experiences with back injections in the past.  I am afraid of having an injection because of the pain I am in.

When I made a comment about something that I found difficult (putting on socks) Dr. Antoci surprised me by asking exactly how I did it. and followed up my explanation/demonstration by asking how I did it with the other foot.  Completely logical but not the kind of interaction I've had with some other doctors.

He was very intent on making sure I understood my xrays problems with my knee and follow up exercises and PT.

The office staff was extraordinarily friendly and supportive.  The office ran efficiently and on time.  Overall it was one of the better experiences I have had with any medical office.

In general I was very pleased with my meeting with the doctor. I was able to ask the questions that I needed to and felt that I understood his responses. But as I look back I realize it would’ve been very useful for him to have a look at me standing in order to factor in scoliosis so that I could have a broader view of how I could use and move my body relating to the anatomical anomalies. For the future I think it’s important information for the doctor to see patient standing to look at how whole overall the spinal curves. This could inform how those anomalies relate to the hip condition. I would’ve found this incredibly useful as I am a yoga teacher and deeply interested in anatomy not to mention my own! Thanks.

The only negative about the visit is that when he came in the room he asked me how my knee was. But he replaced my hip. So it seems he hadn't even checked my file to see who I was and why I was there.
