Dr. Harold A Cronson has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Receptionist/ Rude

I was referred by my therapist to call and make a Appt, the receptionist asked what needs I was on. I told her 3 mg of xanex as one of my mess. She told me in a not so kind way, that I was on a high dosage and the Dr would not prescribe them to me, I told her I wanted to discuss with the Dr that I wanted to wean off them eventually. She said oh No he is old school, you will have to go to the hospital. After we hung up,the phone, I was thinking how do you tell someone that, with out knowing or even making an appt? It clearly states he helps with depression. So if this is the case, then I would put on his website, will not prescribe Xanex or help wean you off! At least I found someone else who cares.

Not currently taking ADHD patients

Thought I'd make my first appt to check out lack of focus but was quickly dismissed by the receptionist :-/ Wish she could have at least offered me suggestions/alternatives. Oh well, on to the next one .

Great doc!

Dr. Cronson has a very positive additude and makes you feel comfortable talking and opening up about yourself with no intimidation. There is no weird looks or a funny vibe going on. I would strongly recommend to a friend who needs a psychiatrist.

Excellent doctor and staff!

Dr. Cronson gave me care that was exactly what I needed. I would recommend hin to anyone. His receptionist is personable and works her tail off. She makes an effort to know you like you are family. She is always organized and I love the office visits when I need to go.

They told me to seek treatment else where bc I told the I was not used to doing doc appointment follow ups each month. I told the scheduleing lady that I would if I absolutly had to and they still refused to see me. That is REDICULIOUS! I hate this Psych hunt. They have all been rude or idiots so far...coming from someone with a psych degree, thats saying something!
