What People Say About Dr. Robert Cranston, MD
Reply
Dr. Cranston was my neurologist while I was a student at U of I between 1998 until 2003. He is a phenomenal physician with exceptional bedside manner, true compassion and understanding for his patients (including patients who may be more complicated). He truly cares to help you find effective treatment and ongoing supportive medical care. I really appreciated his compassion and trustworthiness at a time when I was still trying to understand my illness and disabilities. I highly recommend him
