Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
Christopher Kroner, MD, MPH, grew up in Chula Vista, CA, participating in athletics. His love of sports combined with his interests in biology, human behavior and people from diverse backgrounds eventually led to a career both in family and in sports medicines. As a primary care physician, he enjoys being able to build long-lasting relationships with his patients. Over time, the knowledge and trust he gains improves his ability to help his patients navigate their way through any health issues or concerns. Plus, with his subspecialty in sports medicine he's able to treat patients with injuries — often without narcotics — which he rarely prescribes. Dr. Kroner studied psychology, neurobiology, physiology, and behavior as an undergraduate before moving to New Orleans to attend Tulane University where he earned both a master's in public health and a medical degree. Following this, he completed a residency/internship in family medicine and a fellowship in sports medicine at Harbor-UCLA in Torrance, CA. Today, Dr. Kroner is not only a practicing family and sports medicine physician with MemorialCare, but he is currently a team physician for the Anaheim Ducks, NHL and USA Water Polo as well as a physician advisor for ATvantage Athletic Training in Orange, CA, and an assistant medical director for West Coast, Run Disney, Disneyland, CA. Additionally, he is an assistant clinical professor at UC Irvine, has written for publications and presented at conferences, and is a member of both the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Society of Sports Medicine. When not in the office, Dr. Kroner spends time enjoying sports, although lately he finds he does more watching than participating. When his schedule allows, he also likes to attend concerts and other community cultural activities. And although he really enjoys the movies, as a father of young children you're more likely to find him watching Sesame Street.
