      Waited over an hour to see the doctor for 5 minutes. Doctor did not know how to operate the computer. Place was dirty, there was a dead roach on the floor of the exam room.

      in Naperville, IL |
      Several family members have seen Dr. Kron in the past year. The wait can be long, but it is the quality I am concerned with. There is nothing cheap about seeing a specialist, but you get what you pay for. He is great.

      VERY RUDE, WANT YOU TO PAY AND DOES NOTHING FOR YOU WAIT IN OFFICE FOR OVER AN HOUR IN HALF PAST YOUR APPOINTMENT TIME, AND SPENDS 2 MINUTES WITH YOU AND TOLD NO NEED TO COME BACK.
      in Hinsdale, IL |
      UNETHICAL BILLING AND CONDESCENDING EMPLOYEES......TRAVEL TO NAPERVILLE. THERE ARE 3 or 4 ENT Facilities in Naperville. ITS DEFINITELY WORTH THE EXTRA 15 MINUTE DRIVE.....PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS FACILITY.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
