About Dr. Cronin
Dr. Bonnie Cronin completed her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and Masters in Acupuncture at Bastyr University, the leading accredited university for science-based natural medicine. After medical school, she completed a residency in General Family Practice at Clifton Springs Hospital and Clinic in Clifton Springs, New York.
Dr. Cronin’s interest in natural medicine started at Northern Michigan University (NMU) where she received her Bachelors degree in Biology. While attending NMU she joined a homeopathy study group started by a good friend and life mentor, Vicki Lockwood. This is where her interest in homeopathy and then natural medicine came to fruition. Currently, she has a private practice called North Shore Naturopathic and Acupuncture, in two accessible locations: in Canandaigua, New York and in Rochester, New York.
Dr. Cronin is a New York State licensed Acupuncturist and Washington State licensed naturopathic physician. She is a member of the American Association for Naturopathic Physicians, New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians and is a Diplomate in Acupuncture.
Currently in New York State there is no law regulating the practice of naturopathic medicine or naturopathic doctors. Until legislation passes granting naturopathic doctors' licensure in New York State, Dr. Cronin cannot practice medicine. With her rigorous academic & clinical naturopathic education, Dr. Cronin makes recommendations and educates individuals on lifestyle, diet, nutritional and botanical modalities that can improve health and well-being. In addition, Dr. Cronin requests that individuals seeking her services retain a conventional medical doctor or primary care physician for their health concerns and general check-ups. In New York State naturopathic doctors are currently seeking licensure. For more information and to support our licensing efforts go to www.nyanp.org.
Dr. Cronin was raised in Larchmont, NY and is very happy to be back in her home state. She resides in Canandaigua with her husband, Michael.
