Dr. Handy treated me today for a broken ankle. He recommended & scheduled me for surgery.. He thoroughly explained the details of my diagnosis in terms that I was able to comprehend. He did not talk over my head & made me feel comfortable. For the surgery, again Dr. Handy gave a complete picture of the procedure. & afterward. Outstanding marks go to scheduler Joy, front desk attendant Kelly & Janet, who helped me with paperwork.

A kind, efficient and attentive practitioner! Would highly recommend!

Dr. Handy scoped both my knees and repaired the rotator tendon tear in my left shoulder -- not all at the same time, obviously. He explained all of the work thoroughly ahead of time and the results were as anticipated. I would go back to him again in a heart beat for repairs for future joint problems -- if they fall into his area of specialty.

I would not recommend Dr.Handy to relatives and friends. He did arthroscopic surgery on my shoulder three years ago. He was the least compassionate, most sarcastic doctor whom I've encountered.
