Rochester, MI |
This was my first visit with Dr. Handzo and he did not introduce himself, he performed a medical procedure without informing me what he was doing and he had an intern with him who he did not introduce. He was rushed (after I waited 1 hour and 15 minutes to see him) and advised me to have 2 tests done. He did not provide any follow up or next steps guidance. If you have other options, exercise them. It's sad that this office is completely uninterested in providing any kind of customer service

Worst experience. First off he doesn't even introduce himself to me. Just comes in starts asking what's the problem. While explaining he just starts looking in ears, throat, and nose without warning me. I first told him I saw an urgent care doctor rolls his eyes. He checks my ears doesn't tell me if their clear. I asked and he said no fluid. I said that's strange the nurse that reviewed me first said there was. His replied was I have better equipment. He told me to go ask her why she saw fluid.

Dr. Handzo is approachable and takes time answering questions. He uses everyday language and is accommodating.
