Dr. Kenneth Chern is an outstanding physician, I highly recommend him. He and his team of fine professionals at Seaview Orthopaedics did an excellent job of restoring my badly torn rotator cuff. It's great to be back in action, and I'm very thankful.

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!!!
