Dr. Handelman was thoughtful and really listened to the history of my unknown rash. She gave guidance on food that interacts with poison ivy sensitivity. Great insights.

Dr. Handleman was friendly and easy to discuss my allergies with. I feel like she actively listened and explained her thinking as well. Staff are also friendly.

As other people mentioned, Dr. Handelman is not the warmest person, but seems competent in her field. However, her clinical staff are not at all friendly, and are very impatient with nervous kids. I think they would be kinder or more patient (maybe even helpful?) with kids and shots. After all,...more
