Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kroonen "Kaiser Permanente: Our mission is to keep you healthy. Under-one-roof convenience, 24-hour advice nurse, and online access to manage your health - anytime.

We often do not appreciate the fine dexterity and grace of the upper extremity until it is injured. My goal is to bring back that feeling by working with my patients to achieve their goals. My experience working with military patients and their dependents has given me experience in treating a wide variety of conditions from routine hand conditions to complex reconstruction for combat casualties. I look forward to the helping to the best of my abilities."
