Dr. Richard C Wender has the following 2 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
- Obstetrics and Gynecology
An obstetrician & gynecologist, or OB/GYN, is a physician who cares for women throughout their pregnancies, straight through to the delivery of their baby (obstetrician). They also specialize in annual care, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the female reproductive system (gynecologist). Many physicians specialize in both of these fields in order to provide complete overall health services to women at every stage of life.

Dr. Wender.. what can I say? Hands down, the best. He's not only incredibly experienced with a wide expertise in so many areas of medicine, but he embodies the very essence of what I think Jefferson has managed to accomplish: Excellent health care WITH CONSIDERATION FOR THE PATIENT as a human being, and not a file number. He's been my doc for some 20 yrs, but the last year I've been through a myriad of tests, scans, blood work and surgery. I've seen specialists (with their name in lights) at PENN...the famed UoP medical teams. They pale in comparison. Healthcare delivery is about helping the patient feel (not just be) better. Consideration for the human element goes a LONG way toward helping the patient heal and look ahead. PENN, and their MD robots, pale in comparison. Jefferson = Jeffersonian care. And Rich Wender, IMHO, is the very embodiment of that excellence.
Dr. Wender diagnosed my myriad problems and quickly got me on track to recovery and management. He spent over an hour with me, taking my complete history, when I'm used to doctors rushing through an appointment. He's popular and amazingly qualified, so getting an appointment can be tough. Absolutely worth it, though.
