Awful waste of time

No help whatsoever still in pain after almost a year of seeing him, he wouldn’t do any further testing! I would avoid at all cost way better doctors out there that actually care and do their job

Seen josh today for a second opinion and greatful I did. He explained my MRI and told me my options. He also answered all my questions. Embrased the fact that putting metal in my back would not help unlike previous doctor visit.

Dr Cronen is amazing!!

Dr. Cronen did my 14 year old daughter’s scoliosis surgery on May 23rd and he did an amazing job. He has amazing staff as well. He’s caring, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone needing a spine surgeon as he is the best!

Horrible & Unprofessional

Do not make an appointment with him unless you have hours to waste and money. He will not even see you just sends in his PA. He is just milking the insurance system. Doesn’t even read your charts or MRI’s.
