Everything you need to know about Richard Chern MD

Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide the highest quality medical care with a level of personalized care not available anywhere else. We strive to educate our patients so they can make informed decisions about their care and discover how they can conquer their disease or problem rather than just being dragged along for the ride. We accomplish this by spending much more time with our patients and truly listening to their symptoms. Our patients are much more comfortable speaking with us since we are patient and nonjudgmental. We tailor treatment plans to each patient and teach our patients about both their disease and treatment so they can be better involved with their care.
