Nurses are excellent, the best! And so is Dr. Handling!

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Handling! He was informative and took the time to help and explain everything to me. A+

Dr Handling was the only Ortho doctor to take the time to figure out what was going on with my daughter's knee. We spent 2 years with her in pain trying to figure out what was wrong because the other doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong. Finally he did and my daughter is pain free. I also have seen him and he has helped me tremendously. He's a great doctor.

Dr. Handling treated a family member and myself this year for different sports injuries. He goes above and beyond in explaining options along with risks and benefits to difference courses of treatment. His conservative approach and genuine concern for long term health is refreshing. Thank you Dr. Handling for taking such great care of us and getting us back to competing.
in Bear, DE |
I was skeptical of all the great reviews at first and noticed 2-3 that were bad. But after visiting with Dr. Handling, I was quite surprised at how well he understood and explained everything. He was extremely polite and listened to everything I had to say. His bedside manner is excellent. I couldn't say enough good things about this doctor. Highly recommend.
