Patient Comments (1)
Vero Beach, FL |
Dr Handler is a terrible doctor. He misdiagnosed me during an emergency hospital stay, and wouldn't admit he was wrong. Do not ever use him. Besides misdiagnosing me he ordered procedures that were unnecessary, and in doing so added ten thousand dollars to a short hospital stay.
