My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion as an internal medicine physician is to provide you with personalized healthcare with an emphasis on prevention and wellness. Americans are living longer and need to maintain good health to stay active into their “golden years”. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will be treated as if you are member of my family in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and you will benefit from the full extent of my education, expertise, compassion and understanding. I will have more time to develop closer relationships with my patients, perform comprehensive exams and set wellness goals. My focus will be on you how we can help make a happy, healthy future your reality.

I have been practicing internal medicine in the San Luis Obispo community for over 30 years and am well versed in treating complex medical conditions, have built relationships with specialists and have extensive knowledge of our community's resources. My MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. In addition, there are conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments and the ability to reach me via cell phone.

I thoroughly enjoy the practice of medicine and the relationships I have established with my patients. Outside of medicine, I am an avid tennis player, enjoy hiking with my golden doodle “Lexi” and participating in water sports, such as kayaking in our nearby lakes and ocean. Traveling is another passion of mine.


 It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Cherry

from Rhonda in CA April 4, 2024 for Deborah Cherry, MD

I met Dr Cherry in the early 90’s and like her right away because she was caring but most importantly she listened to my ideas about what I wanted to do with my body regarding medications. My only concern was more for her than myself and that was she was having to spend so little time with each patience in order to see all that needed her. I’m very pleased with MDVIP because now she can take… See more
