Patient Comments (4)

His intern came in and evaluated me first. The intern decided that I needed additional testing before Dr. H even appeared. After the testing, Dr. H finally came in and basically told me there wasn't anything that could be done without the problem being active. Why did I waste my time coming in...more

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...more

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...more
