Ratings & Reviews
How was your appointment with Dr. Handal?
The last thing I wanted to do was have to medicate my child for behavior, but when she came home with an F in conduct I was left with no other option . Dr. Handel is one of the most patient doctors I have ever met. My child was literally upside down in the chair and he managed to sit with her and talk for over 30 min about school and life and I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome. Hands down the best parenting decision I have ever made.
