We enjoyed our visit to Dr. Cronin's office. We had been scheduled several weeks earlier. Unfortunately, we had to wait due to COVID-19. Some of the questions I was asked, should have been in ... records.

only reason I didn't see the doctor within 15 minutes is most likely the increased precautions taken given covid. that actually made me feel more secure.

the nurse was friendly, but didn't seem familiar with my concerns. at one point she seemed to giggle and seemed skeptical. it made me feel like my concerns weren't legitimate.

*Dr. Cronin is an excellent doctor who has taken a special interest in me as a patient. She provided outstanding treatment to me when I was hit by a baseball in the eye when I was younger and continues with the same professional treatment into my adulthood.
