About Us

Chesapeake Women’s Care was established by Dr. Lawrence Prichep and Dr. Kenneth Keys in 1980. These two distinguished physicians met each other when they were partners at their former practice and soon became best friends as well as colleagues. Dr. Keys and Dr. Prichep later decided to leave and start their own practice so they could give their patients the kind of care they believed in. They set out to be the best women’s health care providers in the state. After expanding their offices and their staff, they have done exactly that. We now are led by senior partner, Dr. Marcus Penn. We have five providers that provide both gynecological and obstetrical care, Dr. Penn, Dr. Wells, Dr. Russell, Dr. Keith and Dr. Somoza. Drs. Prichep and Herman provide gynecological and early obstetrical care, but no longer deliver. We have three exceptional nurse practitioners that provide in-office care.

With state of the art technology and a well-trained staff, we have proven time and time again we are one of the most recommended and highly-respected practices in the area. The majority of our patients are referred solely by word of mouth, which is a testament to the kind of care we provide our patients.
