Dr Handler has gone out of his way over and over to ensure that my mother receives the best possible medical attention. It has made all the difference in her quality of life and no doubt for her longevity as well. We are grateful for all his sacrifices to help us find a new team of specialists in a new hospital that are driven by their care for and the actual needs of their patients. As apposed to fighting with imposed limits by greedy insurance companies. The difference of which is 'everything'

I have been a patient of Dr. Handler for 15+ years. Although he is an hour's drive from my home in RI I wouldn't see anyone else. He found and treated my colon cancer before it spread and I am very grateful! He is a true professional and always takes the time to answer any and all questions I may have. I never feel rushed-he is very thorough. He is a kind and considerate doctor and I would highly recommend him to family and friends. His staff has always been pleasant and courteous. 5 stars!!!

Dr Handler has recently put me on the right course to feeling better, and I've spent decades being improperly treated by other doctors. I thank god for him and his caring manner and attentiveness! I wish I had met him sooner but am so glad to have him now. I highly recommend him to anyone with gastro issues!

I have been a patient of Dr. Handler for 4 years after two botched surgeries - and repeat failed treatments for abdominal issues. Dr. Handler found the issues and provided the solutions which allowed me to continue to work as a designer at 72- for many of the large Pharmaceutical/Bio-Medical companies in the country Finally, Dr Handler's personality and approach, to his patients is as a caring doctor- goes a long way in helping people continue stay healthy. Thank You Patrick A. Beatrice

Dr. Handler treated my 18 year old daughter for irritable bowel syndrome. I was so impressed. I really did not want my daughter to have a colonoscopy unless necessary. Dr. Handler spent a lot of time with my daughter (45 minutes), examining her and talking to her and indicated that there was no reason for a colonoscopy at this time. He gave her a protocal which included recommendations about what to eat and what to avoid. He has the best bedside manner, and she is already feeling better!
