My consultation with Dr Anton was both rewarding and reassuring. He went above and beyond the call in explaining my situation in a way that I could easily understand and which alleviated my concerns.

He is very knowledgeable in his medical practices and has a very friendly and professional bed side manner. I always feel safe when I'm with him because he has taken care of me for over six years with vascular issues. I don't think The Cleveland Clinic will ever be able to replace this exemplorary doctor.
