As a visit to eye doctor was stressful for my daughter he was never nice and pleasant. I am not going to him any more.

Wish I read these reviews before taking my son. All the above reviews are true. He was rude and not friendly to my son or myself throughout the entire visit. Felt like we were a bother and he just wanted to hurry up and finish with us. My son would move while doing a few of the test and he would sigh heavily. Dude, he's 6. tell him what you are doing before administering the test and maybe he can work better with you.

Dr. Kronwith was very impatient with my son when he was crying and said he needed glasses when he barely even looked into his eyes during the crying, He didn't explain his findings or expectations. My son hasn't had issues watching videos, following along when reading books to him, nor trouble focusing on objects. We got a second opinion and had a much better experience. The physician we saw was had great bedside manner and explained the exam, & my son's eyes were found to be perfectly normal.

I would not recommend this doctor at all. As a new patient, he did not explain what kind of exams he will be performing on my 4yr old daughter. He's abrupt and rude. I was trying to ask questions or explain something to my child who had difficulty understanding him and he told me to be quiet. He's very fast with his speech as well. Aside from his poor patient/doctor manners, the office is disgusting, old and dirty. It's also criminal that he charges $5 for a signature on a form.
