I visited him August 11. He told me the reason that I have problems with my right foot fingers was the shoe. I said why not with the left foot finger. He said "I do not know" but I know how to cure it. He gave me a sample and told me to call the office. His sample helped but it did not help to recover completely. I called his office and asked the receptionist to write a prescription and send to my drugstore. They refused to do that and they said it is taking a lot of their time. Arrogant!

Dr. Handler seems like a very nice and knowledgable man, however he's not that great at LISTENING to patients. Ive had a peculiar rash for about 3 months, and have seen a few other doctors for it with no resolve. While discussing possible exposures to plants or anything he was quick to talk over me, and did not really listen to any of my concerns to my rash being something more than dermatitis as I've had it for again....3 months.

I had an allergy and have to go to emergency room for help. Got a shot of epipen, shot of prednisone, benadryl and ibupfofen, then ordered to see an allergist/immunologist but did not get any cream or treatment coz the allergist said it was not an allergy and she can't do anything about. I found Dr Handler's name online and was able to make an appt sooner. He examine my problem, took biopsy and gave me cream to apply. As if a miracle my skin cleared up so fast b4 the next 2 wks appt to see him.
