The girls at the front desk appear to be miserable...this is the first point of contact. I don't feel Dr Kronen had my best interest at heart. "Surgeons like to do surgery" stated so by the pt dept. At Mid America in Palos. Wish I would of went with my PCP first recommendation on who to see. I do not recommend Mid America Orthopedics.

I had trigger thumb release surgery and Dr Kronen was on time, very professional, great bed side manners. The staff was excellent at Palos Surgery Center. The office and surgical center was beautiful.
