Who We Are

Meet Our Founders

WePrescribe was founded in Hawaii by Drs. Neel Chauhan and Cedric Strong, who saw the need to provide increased access to healthcare for islanders while decreasing pressure on doctors created by the chronic physician shortage.

With years of combined experience in both in-person healthcare and telemedicine, Drs. Chauhan and Strong took the best of both worlds to create a Hawaii-based healthcare service that’s better for everyone.

Dr. Neel Chauhan, MD MBA

Family Practice and Urgent Care

Coming from a family of doctors, Dr. Chauhan wanted to be a doctor for as long as he can remember.

Dr. Chauhan trained at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School in England. He worked in both England and Canada before settling in Hawaii in 2016. He has experience in hospital, clinic, and urgent care settings, as well as telemedicine.

Dr. Chauhan believes that good health means being at your best, both physically and mentally, and that every person should have access to the care and medications they need to achieve this state of well-being.

A strong proponent of work-life balance, Dr. Chauhan sees technology as playing an invaluable role in helping both patients and doctors to achieve this balance.

Dr. Cedric Strong, MD MBA

Internal Medicine

Dr. Strong was always inspired by his father, a doctor who also sought to help and serve his community.
After completing his residency at Tufts University in Massachusetts, Dr. Strong worked at hospitals in Florida and New Hampshire before moving to Hawai’i in 2007. (He still wonders how he made it through all those harsh New England winters.)
Dr. Strong experienced the unique pressures of Hawaiian healthcare right away. He traveled between the islands for several years treating patients before putting down roots in Honolulu. Dr. Strong loves his work in Hawaii, and is inspired everyday by the place and people to make a positive difference both in his own life and in the community.
