My visit with Dr. Kronen went well. He's kind, soft spoken, caring and knowledgeable. He explained my condition in detail to assure me of what was actually going on and as to how he's going to correct my situation. I'm impressed. I would highly recommend Dr. Kronen.

Horrible Dr
I went to see Dr G Kronen back in March 20// I had less than 7 small blisters total on my hands and one foot. he spent less than 5 minutes in the room.Then tells me I need surgery. I sent the pictures to my dermatologist she said it was an allergic reaction. she prescribed some cream. they went away and never came back you should think twice about going to see Dr Kronen!!!!

Dr. Kronen was great!
Dr. Kronen explained very clearly what was going on with my finger through explanation and an illustration. He made sure that I understood what he was describing before we were done.

The doctor was A bit short as far as conversation did not have any recommendations to ease my carpal tunnel symptoms and basically said surgery is the only option which I understand but cannot do for several months, so any suggestions that might help symptoms would have been great but based on him there was nothing. I do not believe I would recommend him.

I saw Dr. Kronen today and he went over my X-rays and explained his findings and how he recommended we proceed. We agreed on a plan for my treatment and after cortisone shots fitted support gloves. So far I’m happy. We expect the treatment to take several months, but the pain is gone for now.

Probably one of the most efficient and satisfying doctor visit I can remember. From the front desk to walking out of the office, the process was seamless and prompt. The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. The doctor was wonderful, explaining things clearly and listening to my concerns. This office should be a model for all doctor offices!
