I was diagnosed with acute anxiety and depression two years ago. Even though I had a good relation and trust with my original psychiatrist, I felt like the medications that were prescribed to me at the time were over-medicating me since I was not able to sleep, had continuous panic attacks and was not able to function at work on a daily/hourly basis. I received a 2nd opinion from Dr. Kron in April, 2010 and within weeks he had completely overhauled my medications to the point that I'm now sleeping regularly and managing very well my day-to-day activities where months prior, I wouldn't have been able to handle or cope with any given situation. From the very onset, Dr. Kron made himself available to me soon after our 1st meeting where calls to him were returned almost instantaneously. He would even call me out of concern even when I didn't expect a call from him. I can honestly say that working with Dr. Kron returned me to a life of normalcy and I am just thankful that I was put in contact with him. Dr. Kron truly knows his field with intelligence and integrity; but most importantly he goes the extra mile to get to know his patients with the sole objective of getting them back in the right direction. I strongly recommend him should you ever need psychiatric help with a personal flair.

Last year, when our adult son was diagnosed with an acute depression, we felt he was not receiving effective treatment. His condition continued to decline until he sought a second opinion from Dr. Kron. From the time of his first visit and over the next several weeks, we could tell he was on the right track. His transformation back to his fun-loving self has been most remarkable. Dr. Kron's professional knowledge and deep sense of caring made a world of difference. We cannot thank him enough for achieving such great results.

If you are looking for a psychiatrist to help you with whatever is causing your anguish and heartache, look no further. I have been to many doctors over the years but none seem as focused on me and my issues as Dr. Kron. He is not only extremely knowledgeable about psychiatric conditions, from depression to bipolar to learning disabilities, but he possesses an intuitive intelligence that allows him to go to the heart of whatever is bothering me during any particular visit. He never rushes me and asks brilliant questions that help me to understand what it is I really need to say. He has helped me develop numerous "coping strategies" that have eliminated many daily stresses in my life. He is there when I need him and that, my friends, is worth it's weight in gold. His office, his practice (particularly now that Nan is on board) and his demeanor, have competence written all over. The way he moves through a visit, handling a dozen little things at once, being an advocate, a case worker, a mentor and a compassionate friend all make him very different, and very much above, most other doctors I have ever met. I am a full time student returning to school after many, many years and working with Dr. Kron I have seen my grades and GPA move steadily upward. Opportunities that were once pipe dreams are now realistic goals I can pursue with confidence. You won't find any better help then right here.

I called Dr. Kron after seeing his web page - it said "Call my cell", and there were some patient reviews that seemed genuine. I called his cell and left a message. At 8:30 pm, I got a call. He asked if I had a moment to talk, and asked me what was up. I told him, and although I felt I was not able to explain it all that well, I could tell by the questions he was asking that he was quickly and effectively diagnosing me - sussing out issues that often accompany depression, as well as ruling out those that can present as depression. But it was the way in which he did it that most affected me. It's hard to explain, but you'll know if you ever have a chance to speak with him. It was as if he was right there with me, and had always been there. An intuition of sorts - a 'knowing' - without judgement, without a doctorly distance. Just a razor-sharp guy with a lot of compassion and a way of explaining the brain's workings in a down-to-earth manner that makes exact sense. He spoke with me for 45 minutes - about newer medications, about what's worked or not for me in the past, and about how I would like to proceed. He gave me the names of several of the newer classes of meds, explaining exactly how they interacted with the brain, and encouraged me to research them further.

Mike is not a therapist. He's almost proud of that, but his manner with you beats what I've experienced with almost any doctor or therapist I've met. He is definitely a people person. But Mike does meds. His success comes with the fact he listens so intently and asks such probing questions (absolutely the variety of questions that count!). "So, what does cocaine do for you--both anything positive and any negative effects too?" ...What? I never mentioned cocaine. But he's looking for clues to help pick just the right meds, and it works. It's pretty neat, but it's also pretty annoying that other doctors don't seem to go after this fairly useful information except in a way that makes you feel judged somehow (Yuck) and makes it seem you are cutting down your options if you admit you drink a glass of wine like everyone else does. Anyway, check out Mike Kron. You'll leave the office with a good sense that help has arrived. -Steve
