I was well pleased with the visit. We discussed a number of issues relating to my hands and Dr. Choi didn’t rush me at all. Thank you.
Dr. Choi Took great care of my little girl, thanks!
Dr. Choi Was very thorough in explaining my options for surgery
Only one week in after surgery but absolutely no complaints with Dr. Choi. He was attentive and answered all of my questions.
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Harder. I felt very relaxed and confident in his suggestion and approach. I look forward to my next visit. Office personnel also very welcoming.
Dr. Harder’s office staff is nice, professional & friendly. The office and treatment areas are modern and nice. The doctor was very good, listened to me, explained things and offered a treatment right away-that helped.
Office staff is friendly and helpful. My knees are getting better and each time I go Dr. Harder is willing to take the next step so that my pain will decrease and my ability to walk gets better. I am pleased that he always has a “next step” plan even though he knows I’m doing my part with physical therapy and exercise. He is willing to try all the strategies in his medical book and that makes me very happy.
I had a great experience with the staff and especially Dr. Pletka. Thank you very much.
Dr. Wu takes the time to get to know her patients. She is very concerned about the wellbeing of her patients. She is extremely kind, caring and intelligent. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a rheumatologist.
AWESOME DOC! I cannot believe how Dr. K was! He is so friendly and nice!
Dr. Kuruvilla is a fantastic doctor. Not only did he explain things to me in a way that I could understand, he also took the time to sit down with me and answer all of my questions and he made sure I was comfortable with the plan of care. I have recommended him to several friends and I will definitely be going back to him should I have another issue with my foot.
Dr. Kuruvilla is a Brilliant, Caring Surgeon. Spends time to explain everything and allowed me to be involved and make an informed decision.
I was extremely impressed by Dr. Kuruvilla’s knowledge base and helpfulness. He answered all of my questions and explained my condition in great detail. After he operated on my bunion, he gave me his email address and cell phone number to reach him. I have recommended him to all my friends.
Michael G. I went to see to see Dr. Kuruvilla after I seen [another] podiatrist in Methuen and had a horrible experience with that doctor he didn’t take the time or the care that Dr. Kuruvilla showed me in the first 10 minutes that I met with him. Dr. Kuruvilla ordered x-rays of my Feet right away which revealed several broken toes an 1 bone that is coming out the bottom of my foot I have severe neuropathy caused by my diabetes so I can’t feel my feet. Dr. Kuruvilla. is an unbelievable doctor. If you need to see a foot doctor do yourself a huge favor go see this man he is so caring an does his job unreal he truly is my doctor for my foot needs until the day I die. No one else will treat my feet but him.
I absolutely love Dr. Palma, he did his best to treat my bulging disc and when he exhausted all options he sent me to a spine surgeon who was also amazing doctor. Palma treated me with respect and spent time explaining my MIR and what he had planned to do and what other options I have. I would highly recommend him.
I had a great visit with Dr. Dowd and my pain is gone. Thanks!
I saw Dr. Harder as I had a swollen knee that caused a lot of pain and I wasn’t able to walk. T Thanks to Gina, his receptionist it was very easy to get an appointment. Dr. Harder was very helpful and gave me a treatment that had my knee feeling better the next day both times I saw him. I went a total of three times (one time was a follow up for tests). Two times I was in and out much faster than I anticipated. The third time took a little longer-an hour total including the procedure but that was still wasn’t long at all for me. They are treating a lot of painful injuries and trying to help people as much as they can.

Dear Dr. Biggee and the entire staff:
Getting diagnosed with any auto immune condition, Rheumatoid included, is one thing. Having some respite or joy, despite its presence over
the years and years is another. I like to take the holiday time or anytime to thank your office for making a difference in my life despite my
auto immune condition. Here’s a whole lot of gratitude for recognizing the whole patient, for taking time to remember, or cross check, to inquire or to observe, for procedures done with care and concern, for appropriate and timely referrals inside or outside the Orthopedics Northeast umbrella and for conversations that make a difference in my condition. And of course I applaud the efficiency of your Wonder Woman office.

Any point of contact whether it is the patient portal, a voice mail, a reminder from Donna, infusion nurse, or a conversation with the capable and responsive nursing assistants Damarais or Leiska, is pretty seamless. I know Dr. Wu and Katie Ghio Physician Assistant are an integral part of this team. Your physician associates inside the association of Orthopedics Northeast have provided crucial excellent care from pain management to surgery.
As the patient consumer you are my invisible web of support between appointments and on the sometimes bumpy road of target treatment. Thank you for your combined devotion and care to this practice in totality and to your patients as individuals. No one desires Rheumatoid Arthritis but you were and are the silver lining and are commended for your combined excellence in care.
