After being misdiagnosed for approx. 45 years, Dr. Handa diagnosed, clearly explained and performed a procedure that has totally transformed my life. He is professional, courteous and thorough. I would recommend him for any and all procedures in his area of expertise.

I liked Dr. Handa however his staff never called me back after leaving a message with information from a portable heart monitor. I called at the end of the day and they had "all gone home". My feedback is that although this is normal run of the mill for you, it isn't for me.
