Patient Comments (12)
I saw Dr. Glazier twice in the last two years for different sports related injuries. Everyone is very nice there and both times I had great experiences. You can tell he really enjoys helping people. Thankfully I don't need to have surgery for my injuries but if I ever do I know where I will be going.

Over the last 10 years I have had 3 knee surgeries and a ligament in my hand reattached. I am no longer the 30 year old athlete my mind still thinks and wishes it was. My 2 sons have had sports injuries and each time we went to see Dr. Glazier he was thorough in his exam and his explanation of care. He listens and spends time explaining required procedures and reports.

I have seen Dr. Glazier for multiple problems. He is always my go to guy! He is very professional and always helps me understand what is going on. The staff was all very nice and so helpful!! Highly recommend this office and Dr. Glazier!

Great Doctor, explained everything about my shoulder and what I should and should not be doing to help it heal. Have been going to him for years for various Orthopedic issues.
in Boxford, MA |
I had a shoulder injury, from overuse, could hardly raise my arm over my head. Dr. Glazier and his team examined my shoulder gently and thoroughly, tested all the motions. I was quite worried, but Dr. Glazier was able to assure me that it would heal up fine with lots of rest and some physical therapy. After following Dr. Glazier's instructions it is feeling all back to normal. Would highly recommend.

I have seen Dr. Glazier for a number of conditions over a period of many years, including shoulder pain (he performed a successful AC joint surgery on me in 2008), elbow tendonitis, fractured fingers, and plantar fasciitis. He and his staff take my symptoms seriously and treat me with courtesy and respect. Dr. Glazier's treatments and/or referrals to physical therapy have always been helpful, and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an orthopedic surgeon.
in Beverly, MA |
Dr. Glazier was prompt, caring, and professional. The wait time was short, both for the consultation and for the on-site X-rays.
in Newbury, MA |
My daughter and I have both seen Dr. Glazier several times over the years. He is always very thorough and very knowledgable. Unlike some doctors, he really listens to what we are telling him, and he takes the time to explain what is going on. I have recommended Dr. Glazier to many friends, and they have always been happy to have seen him.
in Saugus ma |
Most kind compassionate and caring doctor. He listened to me and came up with a plan for my medical care. I would recommend him to all my family and friends.
in Washington, DC |
Highly Recommended!! A rare find in todays medical landscape. Starting with the effort making an appointment, the staff squeezed me in at the last minute for a time/day that fit my travel schedule, including the coordination of outside tests necessary to minimize my office visits. Dr. Glazier himself was prompt in arriving at the exam room, friendly, smiling, and took plenty of time in his examination and a through explanation of the various options open for the treatment of my injury.
in Newton, MA |
Dr. Glazier has taken care of me as well as 4 other members of my immediate family. I drive almost an hour to see him. He has helped us with medical emergencies as well as a range of orthopedic problems. Dr. Glazier has excellent judgement and excellent clinical skills and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a caring, highly skilled doctor who puts his patients first.
in Newburyport, MA |
I see Dr. Glazier for a compressed nerve in my elbow as well as tendinitis in my wrist. He is very warm and understanding. He is a hand/arm specialist and is extremely knowledgeable in his field and took the time to explain everything to me. He has been treating me for these problems for about 6 months now, and they are both improving. The whole office staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. I would 100% recommend Dr. Glazier and Seacoast Orthopedics to other patients. They are amazing!
