Patient Comments (3)
Boston, MA |
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, that has to be a large part of working in an allergy clinic, right? The nurse/PA that was giving the rash test was unacceptably angry and rude to both my husband and my very nervous daughter. We're done.

Yes! I would recommend Dr. Handelman to my friends who need assistance with Allgeries and Asthma at the Newton Office of Northeast Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. She has been very helpful with the care of my three children. Her Nurses and Administive Assistants are always pleasant and knowledgeable.
Brookline, MA |
She was fine. Not very warm and friendly, but seemed competent while we were in the office. When I called to ask some follow-up questions, though, her office did not call back within a timely manner. The nurse I ultimately spoke with belittled me for having questions and dismissed me, giving incorrect medical information. She then informed me that if I wanted to speak with Dr. Handelman that I would need to schedule a follow-up appointment, as she does not speak with patients by phone.
