We found Dr.Antonacci to be an exceptional surgeon who is caring, sincere, thoughtful combined with professional expertise. From our first visit on, he was always attentive, patience and answered all of our questions and concerns. Many times when we (especially the mom) expressed feelings of anxiety, he had a way of easing the feelings with warmth and humor.

We also would like to commend his wonderful team, Dr.Joel Gorenstein, Dr. Schwartz, Dr. Jacobs, Dr. Gandi, Dr. Maynard, (well qualified anestheologist; Dr.Mina, Chris (Nurse Practioner) as well as the staff at Lenox Hill Hospital -- all of the other surgeons and Resident drs.; In pre-surgery-RN (can't recall name but remember kindness and attentiveness) and Gail in admission and all others; Dorothy, Sarah in Recovery & all others attending to Ummie and both of us; Ellen (PT), Marie (RN), Chi (RN), Tamika, RN,Theresa NA, Rita, NA, Marina RN, Erma, NA, and all of the other RN's and NA's on the 9th floor and others at the Nurses' station; the other substitues NA's filling in, Fila; Rachel (Food Services and all of the other hostesses); cafetaria workers; Maintenance Service employees on 9th floor kept it so clean and germfree; Laundry employees (friendly and always helpful); those delivering flowers and those who helped to find the vases, TV & phone services; those who were in the Main Lobby directing everyone to appropriate floors, the discharge person and the helpful attendee who took our daugther to the car on her departure day and to all who we may have not mentioned or misspelled their names and depts.

Would also like to mention the VP of the Chief Operating services and the Chief Surgeon of the Ortopedic Dept. (formerly from the Hospital of Special Surgeries).

She was indeed cared for in a very special way which made her stay at Lenox Hill Hospial comforting & hospitable
as well as most helpful in the healing and recuperation which is steadily improving day by day.

The team did indeed provide exceptional care to make
our daughter's stay in Lenox Hill Hospital a very special and
valuable one.

God bless.

If I'm not mistaken Dr. Antonacci is also listed on the website of Shriners Hospital in Philaelphia. I believe he practices there on a consulting basis as well. I've heard excellent things about him also.
