Dr. Antisdel did his residency in Psychiatry at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Hanover, NH. He practiced as a psychiatrist in private practice in Manchester, NH for 25 years before moving to Florida.

He will be missed for his incredible love of his children and grand child, his love of animals ( especially Sammy), his infectious laugh, his interest in research investments, his deep sense of joy in the garden, his ongoing battle with black flies ( despite protective mesh), as well as his amazing wealth of knowledge.
