Dr Chern was my second opinion for relief for torn rotator cuff plus 2 tendons in my rt shoulder. First surgeon from another practice said nothing could be done [though I believe it was not in his ability to operate on the shoulder.] Dr. Chern explained my situation and offered a reverse shoulder replacement... if I was willing to work hard in recuperation. The surgery at Ocean Medical Center went well. Six weeks later, I am now in the strengthening phase of PT and am improving daily. Post-op visits to Dr Chern are professionally run, involving xrays and skilled assistants at the Freehold office. I see a flexible, painfree future if I continue to progress under his instructions. I feel very ckmfortable with Dr Chern and revommend him.

First office visit said I need meniscus surgery. Was told surgery went well. Little pain from surgery. But knee pain never improved. He said I might need gel shots at first visit. With no relief I agreed to gel shots. First shot was painful. He said he hit something it left an egg and big bruise. Second shot Didn’t hurt as much. Third shot I SAW STARS And gave long scream He said he may have hit a nerve and you can’t see a nerve under the skin. He said next time he’ll give be shot in different location. Quick I’m sorry and left room. I asked male Staff for ice, said I can ice it when I get home. Female asst who was in room during shot said give her ice. So male staff did. No real compassion from Chern, I have one shot to go and hope it works. Supposedly it can take 6 weeks to know. if shots works, I’m finding a new doctor to get future shots. I Won’t refer to him as I felt this is just a job & has little compassion, not sure I needed surgery

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.

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!!!
