My surgery went well. Thanks doc. Besides, he gave me a small tip to prevent pain on the other foot between second toe and metatarsal bone. He didn't even remember when I appreciated that, but it was really huge to me, meaning a lot. No other doctors were able to notice the exact cause in spite of MRI and ultrasound. I recommend this doctor.

I am very pleased with the care I have received from Dr. Caronis. I have seen him for a number of years, and he has done surgery on me twice, once for Achilles tendon, and once for tennis elbow. Not only were the events successfully treated, Dr. Caronis's care was personal, professional, and genuine.

Dr. Caronis first treated me for a broken wrist. He was excellent, compassionate and gave us options for treatment (surgery or not) and what I could expect. Things went very well. He is very accessible for questions and open to needed appointments). Today my wrist is almost perfect and I thank Dr. Caronis and his staff. With recent knee problems, I feared he did not treat that area. He saw me and assured me he was there for whatever I needed. He is a 5 star doctor & recommend highly

I've taken all three of my kids to Dr. Caronis because of various sports injuries. He takes the time to listen and we have never felt that he rushed us. He patiently addressed all of our concerns. Dr. Caronis was able to diagnose and treat the injuries so my kids could get back to playing their sports pretty quickly. He's fantastic!! Thanks Dr. Caronis!!!

I saw Dr. Caronis in Libertyville at the Condell Outpatient building. It is a very nice facility. I was seen right away. What most impressed me was how he acted towards me. My problem was with my foot and I had put it off a little because of embarrassment. He did not act disgusted, nor did he rush of to scrub his hands right away. He stayed right where he was and discussed things with me. He seemed knowledgable and took his time to access the problem. I would highly recommend this doctor.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
