Dr. Chesner is a Dream Doc. His compassion, competence and knowledge are immediately and consistently apparent. He's kind, thorough, takes as much time as is necessary, hears every word, and never rushes. He is a great diagnostician and patient advocate. He makes me feel like I'm his only patient, as busy as he is. I wish all doctors were like him. I am truly grateful to be his patient.

Reading these reviews Wendy Rosanova Has it spot on. Dr Chesner has been treating my wifes lupus, fibromyalgia, and RA for the past 10 Years with compassion and kindness as no other doctor I have seen in my life. We were grasping for anything that could help save and manage my wife's auto immune diseases.I honestly thought we were going to lose her as she was admitted to Doylestown hospital on several occasions for weeks at a time and getting no direction prognosis from the doctors. DR Chesner and another infectious disease doctor stepped in on 1 of her hospital visits and started cutting out a plan for her and also made sure my wife never felt that her life was hopeless. My wife will have these autoimmune diseases for the rest of her life but at least I know she has a Great,Humble, Honest, Sincere and Funny Doctor in her corner to help her manage it...Thank You Doctor Chesner!!

I have been seeing Dr. Chesner for many years and feel so blessed to call him my rheumatologist. He is not only knowledgeable and skilled as a rheumatologist but also compassionate and completely committed to my well being. He has literally saved my life. He treats his patients with respect and dignity and though he is very busy you never feel rushed or unimportant to him. He encourages me to take an active role in my treatment and just will not let me give up on myself no matter how bleak things look because he never gives up on me. His assistant Erica is also wonderful as are all those at the Langhorne-Newtown Office. I have been to his other offices and have been treated kindly there also. I can't recommend him more highly. He is wonderful!

I had an excellent visit with Dr. David Chesner. He spent extra time with me and my husband reviewing and discussing all of my concerns and questions. After examining me, we discussed a future medical plan (for me) based on his assessment. I highly recommend him to any one seeking a Rheumatologist!!

I love Dr. Chesner and I consider myself the luckiest person ever to have him as my Rheumatologist, He truly is the kindest, sweetest, most knowledgeable doctor there is. I recommended him to two other people and they also think he's the BEST! Everytime I write to him on the portal, he gets right back to me and always tries to help in any way he can - he deserves 10 stars - AND a big raise!!!!

There is no doctor better than Dr. Chesner. For 20 years he has treated my lupus, fibromyalgia, and the long list of medical conditions I have with extraordinary compassion and knowledge. He has never let me feel that my life was hopeless to manage these autoimmune diseases, he has always looked for ways to improve my treatments and my well-being. He continues his education to provide the best treatment when medical improvements are available. He partners with me, listens to me, and treats me with amazing care.

Dr. Chesner is the most caring and professional physician I have ever been to. The office staff is great, and Dr. Chesner is one of a kind. He genuinely listens to all of your symptoms and concerns and comes up with a treatment plan you are comfortable with. He is empathetic, personable, and doesn't rush through your appointment.

Dr. Chesner understands the struggle, the chronic pain, and disease progression. His empathy and care for his patients is like no other I have ever seen. Whether it's happy days, sad days, grumpy days or pain days for the patient, he takes it all in stride, looking beyond all of that to SEE the patient. He goes out of his way daily to make sure his patients are comfortable, free from pain and have a great QUALITY of life.

I appreciate how Dr. Chesner expresses interest in everything in my life. He coordinates information about how I'm feeling, my physical ability to function, and information from my lab work and office exam into a comprehensive plan of treatment. He always makes me feel like there are options and proactive steps to take toward feeling better. I especially appreciate how quickly he responds to my communications with him via the patient portal, which helps between appointments.

My wife recently suffered an extreme fybromyalgia flare. Dr. Chesner worked with her on a continuous basis to prescribe and update a medication regimen for her evolving situation. This included several phone calls after hours, on his days off, on holidays and weekends. By following his instructions, we were able to limit the potential magnitude of the flare and its fallout. His experience, council, and empathetic manner throughout this episode increased our already high regard for him.

I have been seeing Dr. Chesner for many years. I've been in pain a long time and when he felt my case was beyond what he could help me with he recommended that I see a pain specialist but he also continues to follow up with me. Dr. Chesner is a wonderful doctor and he cares about his patients. He knows when to bring in another doctor to help him with his patients. To me that says a lot when a doctor is willing to bring in another doctor to help him make his patients feel better........

I thought I filled this out 2 times now Dr. Chesner has gone above and beyond in his care for me. His expertise saved my vision from PMR and Giant Cell Arteritis. Many doctors don’t even know what it is. Long term treatment with Prednisone is the treatment that has several awful side effects. Dr. Chesner has helped me so much with them. He is so kind and caring. He understands the pain I experience. I am so blessed to have found him to get me through this awful disease. He is the BEST!!!!!
