My 14 year old son has rapidly advancing scoliosis. I am an OR nurse but we just moved to Florida last year. My husband also works in the OR. We work 4 The 2 biggest hospital systems in Tampa. Our professional peers could not say enough positive reviews about Dr. Cronin. I've seen him in action and concur. He diagnosed lower leg descrempcy 2 prior docs missed, collaborates w/an amazing doc at Shriners, & both are formulating least-invasive timingly strategic corrective measures to cure my boy!

Dr. Cronen is by far the BEST spine surgeon! He corrected my scoliosis, fusion T3-L3 on August 2, 2016. I had my one year follow up a couple of weeks ago and I could not thank him enough. I was 59 at the time of the surgery and due to Dr. Cronen's expertise and skill, my life has changed for the better, 180 degrees! In addition he performed my daughter's spine surgery on April 29, 2009 and she is doing wonderful. We drive 3 1/2 hours to see him because he is the best in the state !

i am 74 yrs. old i have been to many doctors and by far cronen is the worst . the only people he treats is insurance companies.i dropped dr. from his name because he does not deserve it. dont walk , run and find a honest dr. who is interested in helping his patients , NOT CRONEN !!!!
Tampa, FL |
Terrible doctor! Run! He's rude and arrogant and his bedside manner is cold and uncaring. He spoke to me as if I were stupid and he was completely unconcerned about my pain. Told me I should see a different specialist because my pain had nothing to do with the bulging and herniated discs nor the bone spurs on my spine. I've seen three different specialists and I was referred to him by a fellow Florida Medical Clinic physician. (See my full review on Google reviews) Will never return.

I am not sure about the negative reviews but Dr Cronen has been nothing but awesome with my husband & myself. He did my husbands back surgery & so far everthing is wonderful. He even came in on his day off to check on my husband. Sometimes the wait is a little long in the office but we'll worth the wait. Thank you Dr Cronen. Bud & Suzanne Moll
Lutz, FL |
Waited over 90 minutes in exam room in only shorts. Horrible bedside manner very arrogant no apology for being late. No help with back condition left office feeling helpless. Parking lot under construction no place to park. Worst office visit I have ever had. Avoid this place.

In the pocket of insurance companies and workmans comp.
in Ruskin, FL |
Dr. Cronen was absolutely great. I had a severe problem that needed to be repaired. I saw him on Thur. and was sch. for Mon. surgery went great. This was my 4th back operation. I had always used neurosurgeons in the past. My post pain was 90% less and recovery time was way faster. I found Dr Cronan because 3 assoc. has referred him to me. I highly recommend this man. He is plain spoken and does not kid around which suits me just fine. He makes no promises. He's truthful and upfront
Wesley Chapel, FL |
Dr. Cronen is extremely unprofessional and I would stay away from his practice. They are leaches for your cash and don't fix anything.
