Specialties

Dr. Elizabeth T Curtis has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Needs to retire

The office staff is just awful. They are rude and disrespectful. Dr. Curtis shows up two to three hours after her first appointment so that means it's about a 3 hour wait. She does not take accurate notes, forgets simple things and confusses patients. She had we come off a medication so that we can start me on a new. When I went in she forgot the whole game plan and didn't write in my file. I was in so much pain from the taking me off. All she said was just start back on the old med. waited two and half hours for that. Said she would refill my script it's been a week and still has not done so. Can't reach anyone in the office and when you do they say we will talk to the doctor and hangs up. I had high hopes and was crushed by my experience. Will never go back.

unbelievable!

Dr. Curtis reminds me of someone suffering from manic depplresion aka bi-polar. It`s sad for her and patients. Ihave experienced being treated kindly and then like a non human with no feelings! I am sensitive and suffer from two systemic diseases 1 RA 2 lupus I have had 5 joint replacements and feel I deserve a Dr who will listen to me,she does not. After waiting 4 hours and not to be heard or have any real medical attention is crazy. She requested I have x-rays and bone density test however she did not care enough to give me the scripts, I called to just pick them up but Was told I would need to see her,no! Not going to wait 3-4 hours for that. My last appt I was the only patient and still waited 2 good hours as she made phone calls etc. Then treated me rather uncaring infact mean, I deserve better and so do her other patients. Sitting in her Andover office you will find it filthy,no hand sanitizer,no masks. Dust and a concrete floor. The rooms are no better Filthy I will not go back there and I recommend you get your shot or exam in NBPT it`s atleast cleaner. She takes her over shecuduled under paid job out on her patients, thats very unprofessional.

And I was just someone accompanying a patient!

This doctor has no regard for her patients' time. I accompanied my elderly grandmother to her appointment and she was FINALLY seen by the doctor 3.25 hours AFTER her scheduled appointment time. I don't care how good this "doctor" is... Her bedside manner and her compassion for her patients is clearly lacking. This doctor is a rheumatologist helping her patients with issues related to pain and she had no concern over the 3 hour wait. As this was our first visit, other returning patients said this 2-3 hour wait was the norm for this doctor... Buyer beware. Thumbs down to this doctor.

One Star

Wait time to see this doc was 3.5 hours my first visit. I thought it was a fluke so I came back for a second visit- and she had double booked people for appts beginning at 10 am- but at noon she had still not arrived to her office and there was a full waiting room of pts waiting to see her!!! Several pts told me this was the norm for her. At noon, I could not wait any longer- the dr had still not arrived but called in to say she would be another 20 minutes- arriving at 1220 perhaps? For patients who were scheduled at 10, 1030, 11 , 1130 and noon? She was not delayed on rounds elsewhere - she did not have rounds elsewhere. She is lax about her patients time. She is inconsiderate. When I told my primary who referred me, he said he will no longer refer pts to her nor will my insurance co due to too many similar complaints. Buyer Beware. She does not care how much time you give up to sit there and wait for her to show up. Unless she is a miraculous + spontaneous healer, she can not be worth the several hours wait for a 15-20 min office visit.
