03/05/11 5 5 5 5 I am an RN, and Dr. Handler has been caring for my elderly father for quite sometime. Dr. Handler has a wonderful, caring bedside manner, is attentive to my father's needs, has an exceptional ability to share information in words that my father understands. I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Handler's knowledge, competence, being on top of the latest advances in renal care, and his compassion. Living in Boston myself, it is very reassuring to know my father is receiving such capable and attentive care from Dr. Handler, his nurse practitioner, and his office staff.
