Dr Krono saved my life, I had an infected mucus seal and the reconstruction he did to my forehead was fantastic, thank you Doctor.
Naperville, IL |
have had to wait;I don't mind cuz I know I am being seen by a top doc.For me the need is to have good medical care even when my schedule is very tight. I take material to do or read.I have done my homework & found that 1) he comes from a residency in ENT at a top med school in the field of ENT; 2) he is a doc that other docs choose to go to (this is a good way to judge a docs competence); 3) Other patients results have been very good; 4) I ask other docs who to go to. He's someone I trust.

Bring reading material for the waiting room!! It's worth the wait though. Dr Kron was very patient and kind. He answered all of our questions. We didn't feel rushed. He's very knowledgable. Told us not to hesitate to call or come in with more questions. And his surgical skills are impeccable. You can barely tell he performed surgery! We highly recommend Dr Kron!

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.

DR. KRON IS VERY KNOWLEGABLE AND PROMPT. LITERALY NO WAITING TIME AT HIS OFFICE.
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.
