Denise D. Routhier MD
Nonsurgical Musculoskeletal & Sports Medicine with a Special Interest in Treatment of Lower Extremity Injuries
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Routhier.
“I was very pleased with Dr. Routhier, and she very well managed cortisone shots. I realize I had a problematic arthritic hip but did not ever feel I was going to go through so much pain before my getting another shot. I realized that perhaps I was going to need more than a shot and tried to escalate my appointment with Dr. Routhier without success. I did however call and asked to speak with Dr. Routhier or her nurse and was promptly directed to her nurse. I explained my problem and the fact that I was in extreme pain for some time now and she has promised that she would relay my message to Dr. Routhier and that I would hear from her probably this coming Wednesday, September 26, or Thursday, September 27. Dr. Routhier did mention to me that perhaps I would need a hip replacement. At that time I felt I did not want that done because of probably my age. However, I am ready to do whatever I need to do to get rid of the constant pain in my leg and hip.”

“Love Dr. Routhier! Very knowledgeable and personable. Thank you for making me feel like you genuinely cared. Hopefully, I won’t need to come back but if I do I know I’ll be in good hands.”
– Mary C.
“Dr. Routhier is terrific. Knowledgeable and personable. And she doesn't play doctor god. What the heck more could you ask for? I wish I could see her more often. Maybe I'll break a leg or something. My uncle was a doctor, so I know 'doctor.' She's the best.”

“Dr. Routhier has diagnosed my trochanteric bursitis and has injected a corticosteroid four times with the last time being in June. Before this previous injection, she ordered an x-ray of my hip. The hip showed only mild arthritic damage. However, this time the dose did not work as well, and if I walk more than 1/2 block, it is painful, and I limp. I do trust Dr. Routhier.”

“I arrived at Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine with three distinct areas of concern, with the possibility that they were inter-related. Most likely having been developed over an extended period from innocuous, seemingly everyday behaviors that provided no previous hints of their development. Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine assigned me to the correct physician to review my symptoms and to recommend an initial course of remedial actions. My assigned doctor, as well as the entire supporting group of professionals and staff personnel, performed outstanding levels of service in completing their tasks. I am looking forward to the next phase of my symptom-review and to the updated recovery procedures that they will recommend.”

“Cortisone shot given in the right place. Love the offices and greeting people. Always different ones when I go in, but exceptional.”
– Susie T.
“Dr Routhier answered my questions, addressed my concerns, and was willing to go the extra mile, spending a little more time, to give me a cortisone shot I had never had. It was after 5 yet she was unhurried and patient, making sure I was ok the whole time. I've been searching for answers for over a year. It was nice to finally have them.”
– Paula H.
“Pleasant, courteous, helped pinpoint my problem.”

“I was extremely impressed with Dr. Routhier. I am a registered nurse and actively working since 1974. I have recently (last 3 years) moved from Fairfield County in CT. An area that has the best highly professional care ,in any field, no more than 30 minutes away. In the 3 years I have been here, I have found such scattered ineffective care, until I came to Slocum. Within 10 minutes I felt I was back home. Excellent doctors, superb organization and the most professional environment. In one visit I was able to consult with an amazing physician...get X-rays...have a treatment plan...and have the treatment provided to me in the same visit. This happened time after time. No long waits...my concerns were validated...I felt so well cared for....If only all healthcare could be provided here in this form!”
