Dr Handal has worked with my son for almost 3+ years and under his care, I have watched my son transform to a brilliant and more sensitive young man. For everyone that knows him when we first arrived in AL, none of them can believe that this young man is the one they encounted over 3 years. Dr. Handal was very careful in placing my son on medications that allowed him to focus/grow and with every feedback he adjusted to fit his needs. If you are in this area check him out. We will miss him/staff
