Best Spine Surgeon Ever !

I had my one year, to the exact date, post-op visit with Dr. Cronen today! He corrected my scoliosis from T-3 to L-3. I was 59 years young at the time. His skill and expertise has changed my life dramatically ! I am happier and more active then I had been in the last 4-5 years. He is the BEST BY FAR. I travel over 3 1/2 hours to see him. My hero.

Terrible doctor. Will never return.

Terrible doctor! Run! He's rude and arrogant and his bedside manner is cold and uncaring. He spoke to me as if I were stupid and he was completely unconcerned about my pain. Told me I should see a different specialist because my pain had nothing to do with the bulging and herniated discs nor the bone spurs on my spine. I've seen three different specialists and I was referred to him by a fellow Florida Medical Clinic physician. I waited over 2 hours to see him, paid my $50 copay, my husband took off work to be with me in this important appointment....and we left feeling insulted, belittled, angry and hopeless. Don't let the whole "Tampa Bay Lightning" surgeon written everywhere fool you. He is an awful practitioner without any manners. I wouldn't recommend him to my enemy. Oh yeah..one last thing. Our daughter had scoliosis correction with spinal fusion in 2015. Excellent surgeon (Dr. Okafor) and superb results. During my appointment, Dr. Cronen stated that scoliosis is not a painful condition and that our surgeon was not as good as he was. What a professional! Run!!

Best Spine Surgeon in the State

Dr. Cronen performed my daughter's scoliosis surgery in 2009 and she has enjoyed a wonderful outcome! Due to our satisfaction with him, I selected him to do my neck surgery this past January. I am progressing as expected and have no complaints. Dr. Cronen will also perform back surgery on me sometime this summer to correct my scoliosis. I can not say enough good about him ! I travel over 3 hours to his office because I feel he is truly the best.

Five Stars

Dr Cronin is an excellent surgeon. He accurately diagnosed my back pain and offered surgery only as a last resort. He always took time to answer all of my questions, provided accurate information and treatment options. He informed me of all of my options prior to recommending surgery. He is conservative in his approach which I greatly appreciated. I am now in the recovery phase of my surgery and very happy with the results. I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for a surgeon.
