Very good.

March 29, 2020 11:34 AM

Dr. Caronis never rushes an appointment and answers all of my questions.

March 25, 2020 9:58 PM

Dr. Caronis is a very sympathetic and concerned provider. He validates and addresses my concerns and answers my questions clearly in a way that is easy to understand.

March 21, 2020 9:30 PM

Dr Coronis is a terrific doctor. I appreciate his care and am extremely satisfied.

March 21, 2020 8:56 AM

The Provider is a gifted Surgeon who combines his mastered professional skills with humor and real interest and concern for my best recovery. His staff and assistants reflect the same goals.

March 17, 2020 2:06 PM

The receptionists, nurse, & doctor were all fantastic!

March 17, 2020 2:06 PM

Everything was great! The doctor was very nice, knowledgeable & gave me clear instructions on how to care for my ankle he was one of the nicest doctors I've ever had!

March 16, 2020 6:12 PM

very good experience!

March 9, 2020 10:59 PM

Doctor was referred by ER physician to treat broken ankle. The physician's assistance was wonderful , kind and gentle , very attentive to caring for broken ankle without hurting arthritic knees !

March 9, 2020 2:04 PM

Dr Caronis was very professional and personable. I felt as though he truly cares about helping me with this ankle pain.

March 2, 2020 6:25 PM

Visit was to request a letter regarding current status and condition of my knee. Dr Caronis seemed to know immediately what I needed and said he would dictate the letter right away.

March 2, 2020 6:25 PM

I was very pleased with Dr Caronis' responsiveness. But - I never received the letter. When I called about it today the person I spoke to didn't know anything about it. She said she would follow up and call me back. I could have picked the letter up today. She never called back and I am still waiting to find out what is going on. Now I will have to make a special trip to Libertyville. It was 6 days ago that I saw Dr Caronis and I have a deadline to forward this letter to the FAA. I'm very disappointed.

February 29, 2020 6:36 AM

Dr Caronis and X were wonderful! Direct without being abrupt. Explained without condescending. Listened and truly seem to care. X was friendly.and explained the surgery process fully.

February 29, 2020 6:36 AM

Other than the providers, no clinical or administrative staff member introduced themself or explained the process.

February 24, 2020 4:24 PM

I feel I am in the best hands with this surgeon doing my surgery. I felt so comfortable and cancelled surgery with another surgeon to see Dr Caronis and have him perform my surgery.

February 21, 2020 5:48 AM

Very good courteous and professional treatment.

February 18, 2020 10:46 AM

I left with confidence that my issue will be properly evaluated.

February 18, 2020 10:46 AM

The facility and office space needs serious updating.

February 11, 2020 9:00 AM

Dr. Caronis gave me a prescription for an orthotic for my shoes that helps me stay active and pain free for the last three years.

February 11, 2020 9:00 AM

I was a patient of Dr. Caronis when he was with another practice. I followed him to Advocate Medical Group because he was able to help me find a solution to my foot pain. I had been to a podiatrist before and the treatments were just not working. Dr. Caronis prescription for treatment was like a miracle and I have been able to stay active as a runner and cyclist for the last three years.

February 10, 2020 9:21 PM

always informative and competent

February 10, 2020 9:21 PM

my visits are always productive and pleasant

February 4, 2020 10:15 AM

Excellent overall experience. Appreciated the time taken by the PA to discuss my care-- the PA made the experience feel very patient-centered.

February 3, 2020 1:45 PM

I saw Dr. Caronis for an achy knee from riding a stationary bike at the Centre Club. I have seen Dr. Caronis on other occasions, and as always, was very helpful and friendly.

February 3, 2020 1:45 PM

I always appreciate the care with Dr. Caronis. I have also seen Dr. X, who is also first rate...friendly, and well versed in helping me.

January 30, 2020 8:17 AM

Thorough - took X-rays - spent time answered questions.

January 28, 2020 8:33 PM

Dr was very pleasant and friendly. He performed a hip replacement on my mom.

January 28, 2020 8:33 PM

I felt very confident in the dr.

January 28, 2020 1:37 PM

Very good.

January 28, 2020 1:37 PM

Gave all the information I needed.

January 28, 2020 1:35 PM

I had a positive experience with Dr. Caronis. I was a brief appt. to explain an x-ray and to order an MRI which is pending.

January 18, 2020 2:21 PM

doctor was very good

January 18, 2020 2:21 PM

wait times were long

January 13, 2020 4:47 PM

doctor cronies listen to me and explain to me thoroughly everything that I needed to know about my surgery and about follow-up care

January 13, 2020 4:47 PM

Dr caronis was very thorough and professional and listen to me carefully and made me feel comfortable about the surgery and post-surgery care

December 31, 2019 9:15 AM

The only problem I had was one of the receptionists. When my appointment was finished, Dr.Caronis told me to stop at the desk to have a disc burned of mt x-ray. I asked an older lady about this and how long it would take. She was vert abrupt and told me there were many patients waiting. I asked her if I could pick it up on the 27th. she said she would put thru the request. I called on the 26th and nothing had been put into the computer. The person I spoke with was very helpful and apologetic. When I came ib on the 27th, everything was ready.

December 30, 2019 7:58 PM

Dr. Caronis was great. He did a very complicated surgery, prepared me for both the short term and long term recovery, and handled the questions I had professionally and compassionately. His staff was also outstanding, and I'm very happy he did my surgery.

December 30, 2019 3:54 PM

Dr. Caronis is easy to talk with, provides clear information about what is happening and what needs to happen, and includes time for me to ask questions. I have recommended Dr. Caronis to others!

December 30, 2019 2:43 PM

long wait stated my concerns but didn't make a difference

December 27, 2019 12:26 PM

This appt. came at the recommendation of a new primary dr. for my mother. We are pleased with the results so far.

December 23, 2019 7:43 PM

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Caronis and his team for years. Always very happy with care and results. Highly recommend!

December 18, 2019 8:39 AM

It was all excellent.

December 18, 2019 8:39 AM

Excellent experience.

December 12, 2019 12:53 PM

Excellent. Questions regarding last 3 months do not apply due to I have not seen a doctor in 4 months.

November 20, 2019 8:48 PM

Dr Caronis has always been very personable, takes interest in me and my life, explains all the health choices, etc. His whole team-Kathy his assistant has been with him for quite some time-have always been the best!

November 20, 2019 12:15 AM

Dr Caronis is one of the BEST Orthopedists I've seen! His PA is EXCELLENT too!

Dr. Caronis has been great. Took the time to explain why I needed surgery, and has monitored results after. Answered all my questions, and not only told me what to do, but why. if I had any unease, I'd have gone to inconvenient Midwest Orthopedic, but he was great before, especially during because it's healing well, and after.

Everyone with this orthopedic office/practice is great - so professional & nice.

February 11, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Caronis, and his PA X, successfully treated my hips to the point where I no longer have ANY pain!

February 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Caronis was great. I was expecting the more typical IBJI bums rush, but was treated well, and not rushed. He took the time necessary, addressed my concerns, and when asked, replied confidently that he was the guy to do the surgery. Also let me know that it's a lot to bite off, and will be a long recovery. I wish I had met him sooner!

February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

Excellent, he knows his field and I trust him. He has always done what's right for me and has discussed everything with me thoroughly.

Good but I had a question he could not really answer.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Exellent job ! Thank you !

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

This was my first visit with Dr. Caronis. I found him to be very personable, he pinpointed my problem immediately and suggested a course of treatment. I was happy to get an appointment as quickly as I did. Now, a couple of weeks after the appointment, I'm finding the treatment to be effective and hope that my injury heals soon.
