What People Say About Dr. Deborah Hazen, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Hazen was my doctor for over 15 years. In the beginning she was very kind and seemed like she actually cared about my wellbeing. However, over the last few years she has become the most condescending, know it all doctor, who is dangerously incorrect with her facts. The last straw before I moved on from her was when I called her to explain my symptoms but she wouldn’t allow me to speak, told me there was nothing wrong with me, then preceded to give me incorrect information. Well it turns out there was something wrong with me and it happened to be life threatening. Avoid this doctor at all costs because it could actually save your life.

Agree with the positive reviews. Have been a patient since 2002 or so, and I have found her to be personal and personable, caring, direct, and with access to an excellent network of specialists. While I have moved around MA, I have not changed her as my PCP. No hesitation to recommend her.

I only lasted with this Dr. for 2 visits. I agree with all reviews that say she is condescending and rude. She also misdiagnosed a serious life threatening condition and was upset that I went to a specialist. Good thing I did not listen to her. It saved my life. She thinks she knows everything but on the contrary is very misinformed. I would not trust her judgement.

Dr. Hazen was my pcp for about a decade. Initially I was very impressed by her attentiveness, knowledge and thoroughness. But over the last 3 years I was with her she became more condescending, impatient and rude. She actually called me on the phone to berate me because I went to my ob/gyn for management of a condition vs going to her. The last straw was when labs showed a serious condition that requires immediate surgery and she told me I didn’t need it. I was rushed to ER.

At first Dr Hazen seems like a doc with great personal touch, she calls you with your results, takes time with you and sees you on short notice. However, she does not like her patients to have an opinion, be proactive in their own healthc or to ask too many questions. You must do as she tells you. She easily loses her temper if you don't follow the rules. She is very condescending and will lecture you. She frequently criticizes other doctors which I find unprofessional

Dr. Hazen is the best. I have come to know her wisdom and concern for her patients. Dr. Hazen was willing to accept my mother as a patient and was very helpful to me and to her as her health declined. She listens to her patients.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hazen for about 15 years. I was lucky enough to have found her when I was going through a difficult time in my life and needed a good physician to just talk to and she did just that. She is always available and happy to assist. I recently suffered a pretty serious injury and she has coordinated the best physicians and PT for me. I am fairly certain she is one of the few doctors who call 'just to see how you are doing'. She is one in a million. Cathy - Berli

She is very organized, very concerned not only about my health but my life and things that may be affecting me that could cause ill health. I was in a bad car accident and she was the only Doctor who would help me which is how I started with her about 16 years ago. I highly recommend her!

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Hazen for years. Dr. Hazen is hands down the best Dr. either of us has ever had. She is courteous, professional and extremely knowledgeable and most importantly caring. 8 years ago, I was going thru a terrible ordeal and she and her office called me daily to check on my well being. She is top notch!
