Welcome New Members
Devy A. Setyono, MD
The Berks County Medical
Society is pleased to welcome Dr.
Devy A. Setyono, a Board Certified
rheumatologist now with Emkey
Arthritis & Osteoporosis Clinic. Dr.
Setyono earned her medical degree at
Guangxi Medical University in China.
She then completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the Drexel
University College of Medicine and a Fellowship in Rheumatology
at Wake Forest University before coming to Berks County.
To get to know Dr. Setyono a little better, we asked her to
respond to some questions:
1. Describe the focus of your practice and any areas of special
interest/expertise. Rheumatology, I am especially interested in
cases of vasculitis, inflammatory myositis and SAPHO syndrome.
2. What do you like best about practicing medicine? I am
attracted by the challenge of the many systemic and essentially
untreatable aspects of rheumatological conditions and encouraged
by the relationships I had formed with such patients during my
internship and residency. I was particularly intrigued by conditions
that did not have an easy cure and was convinced patients who
could not be cured needed a physician as much as, or more than,
those who could be easily cured.
3. Are you involved in any nonprofit/community groups at this
time? I have been involved with a nonprofit community group in
Philadelphia that serves vulnerable underserved populations.
4. Please tell us a little about your family and the activities you
enjoy outside of work. I enjoy road cycling, hiking, camping and
spending time with friends and family whenever I can.

Kasey L. Pierson, MD
The Berks County Medical
Society is pleased to welcome Dr.
Kasey L. Pierson, a Board Certified
ophthalmologist who recently joined
Berks Eye Physicians. Dr. Pierson is a
graduate of Arizona State University
and the University of Arizona College

of Medicine. After a Transitional Year residency at Providence
Sacred Heart Medical Center, he trained in Ophthalmology and
served as Chief Resident in Ophthalmology at the Medical College
of Virginia. He then completed a Cornea/Anterior Segment
Fellowship at the Cincinnati Eye Institute before joining Berks Eye
Physicians in Berks County. His surgical expertise includes routine
and complex cataract surgery as well as traditional and partialthickness corneal transplantation techniques.
To get to know Dr. Pierson a little better, we asked him to
respond to the following questions:
1. Describe the focus of your practice and any areas of special
interest/expertise. My practice focuses on the most up to date
and state of the art treatments for a large array of ophthalmic
conditions. I have a special focus on corneal disease, utilizing
partial thickness corneal transplants and performing ocular surface
reconstruction.
2. Why did you decide to practice medicine in Berks County?
Despite spending most of my life on the west coast, I have very
personal ties to Berks County. During my residency in Virginia, I
was lucky enough to meet my fiancée, Lauren Ertel, who was born
and raised in Wyomissing. Most of her family still resides here, so
it stood at the top of our list in places to settle down. Luckily I was
able to find a great practice, Berks Eye, in the ideal location.
3. What do you like best about practicing medicine? I've
always valued the human connection with medicine. The ability
to interact intimately with people on a daily basis is truly a gift.
There is no better feeling than helping a patient through a difficult
situation. Sometimes that involves surgery and sometimes that
simply involves listening.
4. Are you involved in any nonprofit/community groups at this
time? I currently work with The Order of St. John. This is a group
that provides funding and care to patients at the Jerusalem Eye
Hospital. I'm planning to go there to perform corneal transplants
as they currently have very limited access to those procedures.
5. Please tell us a little about your family and the activities
you enjoy outside of work. My fiancée and I are always running
around to different festivals, concerts, sporting events. When not
at an event, I enjoy playing basketball, softball/baseball, tennis or
going on a nice hike.
