This guy is terrible. He is uncaring, will not listen to your concerns and does not need to be practicing medicine. I have suffered from sinus infections for years and after going to this doctor twice (since my doctor retired) with a sinus infection he tells me there is no sign of infection and sends me on my way. Ultimately, I end up going to Urgent Care and being diagnosed with a sinus infection and the last time chronic bronchitis. I wouldn't recommend this jerk to anyone.

I'd just moved to the area & needed thyroid levels checked. Dr H knew NOTHING about thyroid levels. He only checked my TSH and told me my 4.8 was perfectly fine and to "just keep cutting your pills in half" he didn't even offer to write me the correct dosage prescription. I've since found a great doc who understands that the books may say under 5 is ok but under 3 is what makes patients feel human. And what doc tells patients to just keep cutting pills in half as a long term solution?!

This doctor should not be practicing medicine. He absolutely will not listen to the patient. He feels he knows more about the patient than the patient himself. When the patient can not see to complete paperwork, can barely drive a car or perform his job and you tell them that cataract surgery is NOT medically necessary, you are incompetent as a physician. I would absolutely NOT recommend him to treat an animal let alone a human being! BTW we will not be paying any more for this visit.

Uncaring, poor bedside manner. Very cocky. His way of "treating" any patient questions or concerns, is to refer you to someone else! Doesn't listen. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone

How ANYONE could give this guy less than FIVE STARS is beyond me. He has kept my soon to be 100 year old mother going with a good quality of life for many years. (She lives with my husband and me.) He monitors all her numbers carefully, adjusting her meds and care according to CHANGES - critical with the elderly. He sets the bar for eldercare physicians, and he SETS IT HIGH. He is what a DOCTOR SHOULD BE - EXCELLENT CLINICIAN WITH A CARING HEART. THANK YOU, DOCTOR HANDLETON. We love you.
Dr was very short didn't want to listen to my concerns and had a awful bedside manner! Will never see him ever again!
