First visit, excellent. Helpful staff, got my insurance cleared up and explained things well. Dr. Handler is very good--listens well, explains things in plain language, tells you what he is doing and why, and very competent--my back pain is much better after one session.

My initial visit with Dr. Handler went very well! I am a Collegiate Athlete who has been experiencing lower back pain. Dr. Handler was able to diagnose the problem and minimize the pain through manual therapy and taping. Dr. Handler wasalso able to educate me on ways to prevent my lower back pain in the future and get me back on the field ASAP. Thank you, Dr. Handler.

The doctor was good, but had an appointment made through ZocDoc and confirmed by the office at 11AM even though the doctor wasn't in until noon.

Stephen was awesome and he will be my go-to for my recurring back issues. He's very knowledgeable and was able to give me treatment for strained lower back/muscle spasms as well as care instructions for over the weekend. The people workingthe front desk were great and I was seen right on time, with no wait. Additionally, the office is in a great location - right off the subway at 23rd Street. It is filled with really cool Team USA/Olympics memorabilia from the owner's work with the U.S. Olympic team over the years. Overall, a cheerful and excellent practice. I'll be back.

I saw Dr. Handler for a consult to treat my neck pain. He took time to get to know me and my concern, longer than I've previously experienced with chiropractors. He made me feel very comfortable and at ease which madethe adjustment very easy for me, typically I get a bit worried about this sort of thing but not with Dr. Handler. After the treatment, my neck pain was gone! Will definitely be returning if I have any further issues. Good to have a chiropractor so close to my work.

Dr. Handler was absolutely wonderful! Honestly, the entire staff was courteous, professional and friendly. Dr. Handler spent the time to understand my problem and advised me on how to improve my day to day activities in an effort to avoid thishappening again. Besides his chiropractic knowledge, it is obvious that he has vast experience in physical training and uses it to help his patients - he brought me to the office's gym and walked me through the exercises that targeted my issues which I now use in my weekly gym routines. It was my first experience with a chiropractor and it exceeded my expectations. I was amazed how quickly I improved and was able to get back to the gym again - even after the first visit, I felt better. In my follow-up visits, Dr. Handler was sensitive to my pain level and he was gentle in my treatments. The few times that I have called the office to speak with him, he has always made himself available and gets back to me within a hour. I'd highly recommend Dr. Handler to all my family, friends and work colleagues. He is great clinician with an excellent bedside manner! 5 stars all around!

There is no one better. I trust Dr. Handler with all aspects of my health. Whether I am seeing him to resolve a sports injury from competitive weightlifting or a migraine from daily stress, he is my go-to doctor. I highly recommend his office to anyone.

While my first appointment was fine, my next 2 follow up appointments were a disappointment. Dr. Handler rushed through my therapy and did not seem to appreciate the level of pain I was in, or help me form a treatment plan. I will not be returning.
