I thought that she was sympathetic, qualified and communicative. Though she wasn’t a specialist in what I have, she does treat patients with it. I would like to have had a bit more time with her. Also I left without knowingif she did a urinalysis, cultrue and sensitivity, important in my case.

I was treated with a lot of care from the start of my experience until the end. I had gone in stressed out and I left feeling heard, understood and respected from everyone with whom I had contact. It was great.Dr. Handler is a wonderful doctor as well as human being. I look forward to my care under her capable guidance and instruction. Already we instituted some changes that I suspect will be very helpful. I feel very optimistic and hopeful. Highly recommend!!!

I highly recommend Dr. Handler and her team. She is highly professional, thoughtful, kind, smart, and serious. The front desk staff and nurses were warm, friendly, and extremely professional. Everyone identified themselves by name and theyeven sent me a letter welcoming me to the practice before I came. Although the office appeared busy, they made a point of seeing me on time - there was no wait. The office itself is comfortable and spotless. I feel extremely lucky to have found this practice.
