I have accompanied my mother to see Dr. Handy several times and have found him to be and most caring, capable doctor. He makes her feel like he is concerned and takes the time to listen to her. That goes along way in the care of the elderly and I appreciate that greatly. Can't say the same for his staff. Trouble making apt. Making a 9am appt. thinking she'll be first and we don't get out til after 11! Come to find out there are 3 "first" 9am apts. Very rude to her over the phone.

Great doctor, but horrible office staff. Office manager consistently rude. Phone calls never are returned.Used to be a much better practice.

Dr. Handy and Mrs. Widener are very professional. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about their staff. One of his nurses began a phone call in a very confrontational manner. She kept interrupting me, and she even hung up on me. Furthermore, the office staff turn over is so frequent, that it seems like no one ever knows what is going on. They even tried to charge my mother for services they have never given her. I don't think they are trying to cheat her, they just won't admit their error.

Best doctor in sw Virginia.

Friendly, able doctor, but two- 2.5 hour waits and, at times, a somewhat hostile and overworked staff make the visit a strain.
