The doctor seemed pretty thorough and very knowledgeable and experienced. She seemed to have her mind on my overall health, not just the limits of her specialty--a great thing. I did feel that there were times I had to assert myself to be heard, which again (previous comment) may reflect the time pressure she is under, and lack of breathing room she has to relax with her patients.

I have multiple medical issues with my eyes. Dr. Cronin clearly explained each medical diagnoses the implications, the treatment and why the follow up is necessary

The doctor lacked empathy and creating rapport with child or myself as the parent. I work with children and her attempt with creating a relationship was very poor.
