Specialties

Dr. Michael C Cronen has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Great experience.

Visiting Dr. Cronen shortly after waking up with 3 bulging disks in my neck in November of 2016 and being in the worst pain in my life, he was life saving! After being referred by my physician, Dr. Sal Ciliberti, and reviewing my MRI's, he arranged an office visit almost immediately. The first thing he told me was that his goal was to get me well, not just treat me. He was very reassuring and seemed to have a keen sense as to the level of suffering I was enduring. 3 epiderals later, I'm pain free, and with the physical therapy he recommended, life is returning to normal. His staff was wonderful Too! Minimal waiting, as well. As a small business owner myself, I'm telling you this office is one of the best. Thanks again to you and your staff Dr. Cronen!

Stay away!!!

They will give you drug and psychological testing even if your not there for controlled substances! They are extremely expensive and may not be covered by health insurance! This place is a business that is there to make money even if the testing is unwarranted!

ripped off!!!

I was seen by Dr. Cronen for abdominal injections to help ease the pain after multiple abdominal surgeries. He felt that he could not help me, so instead of sending me on my way after the initial consult/exam he leads me to a room to take a cognitive assessment test, a psychological test and a drug test. The drug test was billed to my insurance for $900! The two cognitive assessment test billed @ $257 & $323 and the psychological testing was billed @ $175! On top of that I also received his consult bill of $250 billed to my insurance! After all this was completed I asked if I needed to make a follow up and he said there was no need that he couldn't help me! When I received the $900 bill for the drug test I acquired as to why I was given a drug test, psychological test and a cognitive test.?. It was explained by his nurse that it was standard procedure to make sure that I was not mentally incompetent or on drugs. When I explained to her I understood that was standard procedure, however the Dr. said in the initial exam that he could not help me and that I wasn't there for narcotics and he didn't offer nor did I ask! So I ask her why did I need to be drug tested and given those tests when he had no intention of seeing me again or helping me? At that point she seemed befuddled and said that she would have to get back to me... as of yet, I still haven't hear back from her! Luckily the drug test only ended up costing me $200 and the office visit & test cost me $268! However that is $468 for absolutely nothing! I guess I helped to Pay for that Jaguar sitting in his spot out back! Unless you were there for some sort of controlled substance I would refuse to take those tests as they are very expensive and what your insurance doesn't pay you have too!
