David J. Chesner, DO, FACR, FACOI, a Rheumatologist with Rheumatology Specialty Center

Get to know Rheumatologist Dr. David J. Chesner, who serves patients throughout the State of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Chesner is a well-versed rheumatologist who has dedicated training and unique experience in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. He sees patients at Rheumatology Specialty Center with offices throughout the state of Pennsylvania, including Willow Grove, Doylestown, Jenkintown, and Newtown. The focus of the practice is on providing non-surgical musculoskeletal care that is both effective and cost conscious.

“I believe a strong doctor-patient relationship is key to producing successful outcomes. This includes compassion, open lines of communication, empathy, as well as blending skill, knowledge, and experience in a team-based approach with the patient. This is necessary in order to manage complex patient problems, make an accurate diagnosis, and select appropriate treatment options. I like to outline the various treatment options in a simple and concise way for patients to understand so that they can make informed decisions regarding treatment. Nothing is more satisfying to me than seeing a positive outcome derived from working together—whether it be a simple or complicated diagnosis” as stated by the doctor. 

A Fellow of the American College of Rheumatology (FACR) and a Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Internists (FACOI), he is board-certified in rheumatology by the  American Osteopathic Board of Internal Medicine, an organization that provides board certification to qualified DOs who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease in adults. He is also a member of the American Osteopathic Association. 

Back in 1993, Dr. Chesner earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. His postdoctoral training included an internship and a residency in internal medicine at Hospital Consortium, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Following this, he completed a fellowship in rheumatology at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia.

Rheumatology is a branch of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases. Physicians who have undergone formal training in rheumatology are called rheumatologists. Rheumatologists treat arthritis, autoimmune diseases, pain disorders affecting joints, and osteoporosis. There are more than 200 types of these diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, lupus, back pain, osteoporosis, and tendinitis.

On a more personal note, Dr. Chesner attributes his success to always listening to his patients and treating them with individualized personal care. His favorite professional publication is the American College of Rheumatology Journal.
