I had pain in my left shoulder, and right shoulder as well. He thought it was a possibility of a neck injury...He had taken very care of me. I am following up on all of his advise. With in a few hours, I had another appointment with one of his associates to further look into my scans and pain. I truly appreciate his interest in getting me well. JWean

Dr Chern was outstanding. He listened to my issues, torn rotator cuff, and recommended physical therapy vs surgery. 3 months later, no pain and full range of motion. Dr Chern is a very kind caring surgeon, he takes his time and listens!!!
