Worst doctor ever.Spent 2 minutes with me,refused to listen to me,even ignored the previous medications I used.Prescribed something that would solve my problem if I use it 2xday for 2 years.Insurance wanted to have a prior authorization of course because that thing was $250.Called the doctor,he refused to call the insurance.He also refused to prescribe anything else.He asked me to pay it myself and hung up.It's $250 every 1.5 month.He will take your copay and won't solve your problem.A huge SCAM

Had the most awful and unprofessional experience. After talking over me, not listening to me, and berrating me, I left that office within 5 minutes in complete shock. Don't waste your time. There are plenty other professional and personable doctors on the market and this one is not one of them.

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.
