Dr. Handler believes that disease has an etiology – meaning, she doesn’t believe in band-aids for symptoms. Her specific interest is in integrating cutting-edge treatments underused in the conventional system where appropriate to help patients feel better. Chronic conditions, womens’ issues, auto-immune disorders are among some of her specialties.
Dr. Handler believes good health means being abundant with energy and having an optimistic and hopeful relationship with oneself and with others. She feels privileged to help others in their journey to health. She wants her patients and readers to know the questions to ask, the relevant facts, and where to get reliable information.
