His training near Buffalo New York may have made him permanently rude
Dr. Handler failed to call my family during a near death experience (coma) induced by other doctor's overprescribing of psychiatric drugs. At the time, he phoned a prior psychiatric doctor provider, instead of looking at my written medication list in my purse. He seems to have no common sense, or he would have looked in the purse for medication bottles and/or a med list and emergency contact information carried in case of emergencies. He seemed fearful and somewhat antagonistic at times. I agree with other people's opinions that he is rude.

nursing home patient
Too busy to talk. Treating with drug that is causing multiple side effects. Instructed nursing staff that it could take up to two weeks to adjust to medicine. Could be permanently damaged by then.

This doctor is just rude. Doesn't care about you or your family. I wouldn't trust him at all. If you have to use him good luck. Better off going to Walmart and talking to the door greeter, at least they are nice

He told me I was untreatable after my first visit but kept me coming back. He once yelled at me very angrily for calling his office on a Friday. He is the worst doctor I have ever met.

Dr. Handler seems to think that he does not need patient's family input to diagnose the problem. Geriatric patient was treated in a hospital setting. He just took them off their current medications and started them on something else that doesn't help the with the initial problem, and releases them. There is no follow up visits. Only talked with him once in almost two weeks. Did not even have any contact with any of his associates during the period. Hard to treat a problem with very little input about the problem.
