Specialties

Dr. Richard E Chernecky has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Not LGBTQ friendly

He may be a descent physician, but he is either insensitive or oblivious to his patients as persons or LGBTQ. I had a colonoscopy for preventive screening, and during his consult with my husband following the procedure, he deliberately misgendered me in spite of being corrected by his nurse and my husband several times. He did the procedure and it was obvious I am a cis male. I am in a same-sex marriage, and it was offensive being repeatedly being referred to as "she" or "her."

This physician asked me my symptoms, and then said, "I am a STOMACH doctor. I can't do anything about headaches and bodyaches." He was rude and the test that he scheduled as a followup was over a month out. He has the bedside manner of a door.

I have no other health problems and saw him because my doctor wanted to make sure I didn't have a stomach ulcer. Was very rude because i am a smoker. Ask me if I thought it was fair that other people will have to pay higher insurance premiums because of my smoking. Okay you over weight jerk, lets talk about the lifestyle changes you need to make!!!
