Specialties

Dr. Dean L Antonson has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Thankful

Dr. Antonson is amazing!!! We were not rushed, and immediately felt like we were in the right place. He explained everything about our son's condition so that we understood what was going on with him. After scopes, ER visits and testing by other doctors who couldn't find anything, we had lost hope. Dr. Antonson was able to quickly figure out what was going on. He ordered testing that none of the others had ordered and found the problem. Our son is feeling so much better, and is back to himself with zero pain. I highly recommend Dr. Antonson and would trust him with my life.

Life Saver

Dr. Antonson saw my first child 11 years ago and saved her life not once but 2 times when other doctors didn't want to listen. She was a preemie and other GI doctors in town wanted to do evasive testing on her when I didn't want that. Dr. Antonson took almost 2 hours with us after clinic hours and my child changed within 48 hours of that appointment. Then at 6 months is when he saved her again. Even with his busy schedule with GI and Transplant rounds/patients he took the time to see my 2nd daughter, she also was a preemie and born about 5 weeks early. He saved her immediately upon her deleivery and then again at a month of age. His dietician is AMAZING, she always takes time to listen and gives you several solutions and will even take the time to call you on the weekends. They are an amazing team. They take the extra cautions needed for my low immune system baby to go in through special halls so she stays away from other sick kiddos. He advocated for my kids when insurance didn't want to pay. Amazing man! With amazing dietician.

Best Doctor

Dr. Antonson is the best doctor on the transplant team. He really knows how to make the patients and me feel at ease. My daughter probably wouldn't be alive today if it wasn't for him.

Five Stars

Dr. Antonson is the best GI Doctor! We had seen another who gave us no hope for healing our little girl. Dr. Antonson was confident and caring. He followed up with us beyond what seemed like GI issues. He even saw us year later after our baby was about 6 and having other GI related issues. Other doctors had not listened to us the way Dr. Antonson did!
