Dr. Crone attended medical school at both Columbia University in New York City, and the University of Washington in Seattle. His academic career spanned 10 years in the United States Army, where he trained and subsequently taught residents and cardiology fellows. He went on to enjoy a 25 year private practice with a Seattle cardiology group, where he built two cardiac cath labs and was director of cardiology for over 20 years. He held an academic position as Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Good experiences basically for many years--knowledgeable, consistent trajectory of treatment and time taken from time-to-time to research special needs and sensitive to my research on my own medical conditions. Provider sometimes spends too much time visiting about personal details and interests, but at the same time he is building rapport and connections, so the "chatter" doesn't bother me really.

Dr. Crone through the years has been very considerate, sensitive, and understanding. At the same time, he has not hesitated to give me his thoughts based upon his expertise, which is the reason I go to him in the first place.

This is the first and only Dr/specialist that, on the first visit, when he walked into the exam room told me "here's why you're here and here's our plan". I knew immediately that, even though this was our first meeting, he had studied my history and was familiar with my condition. It made me very comfortable immediately and gave me confidence in this Dr and the care I would receive.
