He has great empathy. He obviously is a top rated professional but is not arrogant. He listens and spells it all out in simplistic terms. I go regularly for a cortisone shot in an arthritic knee. He is the guy who does the shot, not an assistant. He's kept me playing soccer, skiing and hockey for 4 years after ACL surgery in the same knee!
in Libertyville, IL |
Dr. Caronis is fantastic. He truly cares about his patients and takes a consultative approach to care. I dislocated my knee and had several months of recovery and physical therapy. Dr. Caronis saw me immediately after the accident, working me in without an appointment. With the help of Dr. Caronis and his incredible team, I was able to make great strides in my recovery. I will always be grateful for their care and will recommend them to anyone!
in Lake Villa, IL |
From the very first appointment through to my last, Dr. Coronis has been amazing! He and his staff calmed my fears, managed my expectations and educated me and my family along the way. I had put off my ankle surgery for years trying to find the "right" doctor, and then I found Dr. Coronis. It has been about 13 months since my subtalar fusion, and I couldn't be happier. It has been life changing! I can now keep up with my kids & participate in life the way I used to. My quality of life is back!
in Libertyville, IL |
We have seen Dr. Caronis for everything from a sprain to a torn ACL. No matter the severity of the injury, Dr. Caronis always takes the time to make sure we are comfortable and confident with the plan of action/treatment. His patience, knowledge, and bedside manner are superior and I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone in need of orthopedic care.
in Libertyville |
I have been seeing Dr. Caronis for many years and have always been pleased with the staff and service that I have received.
Libertyville, IL |
Dr. Caronis is one of the very rare physicians who combines his obvious clinical knowledge with an outstanding bedside manner. He was able to quickly diagnose my condition and patiently and thoroughly explain the necessary treatment. I felt that he truly cared about me and that he would not leave the room until all of my questions were answered. I would recommend Dr. Caronis without reservation to anyone seeking orthopedic care.
Mettawa, IL |
Dr. Caronis has put me back together twice. He is trustworthy, compassionate, intelligent, and skilled in surgery. I highly recommend that you see him for whatever ails you. He will help you feel better and recover fully so you can get back to your regular activities.
Libertyville, IL |
Dr. Caronis is very caring. He listens to you, provides excellent information relative to your condition, and doesn't rush off to get to the next patient. When I've run into him outside the office, he always asks specifically how my condition is; he saw me limping and recommended I come in for a cortisone shot. I never like to "pounch" on a doctor and get "free" consultations, so it's really thoughtful of him when he actually wants to know how I'm progressing since the last time he saw me.
in Libertyville, IL |
Dr. Caronis guided me through 2 years of decision-making. He encouraged me to consider all options and we made decisions based on my personal circumstances and timeline, which was filled with family/work commitments...I didn't have time for surgery, let alone a long recovery! Earlier this year, Dr. Caronis performed the ankle fusion....this summer, I hiked in Acadia National Park, navigated the busy NYC sidewalks, and walked the Freedom Trail in Boston. A year ago, I couldn't walk a city block!
