I have been a patient of Dr. Handelman for about 18 years and he is the best!

My most enjoyable experience with Dr. Handelman was when we met to discuss the results of my last physical. Instead of reviewing the results in his patient room, we instead took a nice walk around the outside area of his office. The weather was fantastic and the results were great and it was a relaxing way to hear and discuss them.

WHEN I DECIDED I WAS GETTING NOWHERE WITH MY DOCTOR, I WOULD LOOK FOR A CONCEIRE DOCTOR. WHEN I BAGAN TO LOOK, I RECONIZED DR. HANDELMAN'S NAME. MY NEIGHBOR HAD TOLD ME WHAT A WONDERFUL INTELLIGENT DOCTOR HE WAS. THAT WAS WHEN I DECIDED HE WOULD B THE ONE AND I AM SO THRILLED TO HAVE SOMEONE WHO REALLY CARES ABOUT ALL MY PROBLEMS AND LISTENS AND TAKES THE TIME TO LISTEN. AT THAT TIME I HAD MANY PROBLEMS, WHICH HE SEEM TO SOLVEONE OT TWO AT A TIME. I WAS SEVERLY DEPRESSED--HAD MAJOR SURGERY, SEVERE PAIN PLUS REACTIONS TO MANY DRUGS. HE WAS ABLE TO WORK THIS OUT. AND AFTER A YEAR I AM WHOLE AGAIN. OF COURSE BEING 86 I AM NOT 40 ANYMORE?. I AM ABLE TO MOST ANYTHING I WANT TO. MY SON, WHO HAS CARED FOR ME THROUGH MOST OF THIS SAID DR. HANDELMAN SAVED MY LIFE. I CAN'T THANK HIM ENOUGH FOR HIS CARE, LISTENING ABILITY AND KNOWLEDGE.

THIS WAS THE BEST THING I DID FOR MYSELF. I AM A WIDOW, AND HAD DEPRESSION,HAD MAJOR SURGERY AND MANY PROBLEMS AFTERWARDS BUT NOT DUE TO THE SURGERY. I HAD DEEPER DEPRESSION AND A LOT OF PAIN. TRIED EVERYTHING BUT NOTHING WAS WORKING. IT WAS HARD TO SEE MY REGULAR DOCTOR, SO I DECIDED TO TRY MDVIP--MY NEIGHBOR HAD BEEN USING DR HANDLEMAN PRIOR TO HIS GOING INTO MDVIP AND RAVED ABOUT HIM. SO I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE HIM A CALL AND THAT WAS THE BEST THING I DID FOR MYSELF. HE GAVE ME TIME, WAS VERY THOROUGH IN MY EXAM. TAKING TIME TO LISTEN TO ME. I HAD BEEN THROUGH DRUGS I WAS ALLERGIC TOO, WHICH HAS BEEN A PROBLEM. HE IS VERY PATIENT AND WILLING TO GIVE ME HIS TIME AND EXPERTISE. I LOVE GOING TO THE OFFICE I DON'T HAVE TO WAIT THE ENVIRONMENT IS GREAT. I REALLY CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THE SERVICE AND MY CARE--IT IS SUPERIOR TO ANY OTHER TIME.

On January 24, 2008 I sent this letter to MDVIP. I have been a patient of Dr. Mark Handelman for a little over a year. I was one of the few new patients who joined his practice when he became a MDVIP doctor as his quota was filled by his patients who had been with him. I cannot begin t tell you how completely pleased I am with the care I have received from Dr. Handelman and his staff. Knowing I can pick up the phone and reach him anytime has given me a tremendous sense of security. I will be 85 years old in Feb. I travel to California frequently to visit family and friends. Knowing that even when I am away from home I can call Dr. Handelman has given me confidence and freedom to enjoy my travels fully. After a year I continue to be amazed at how accessible and responsive Dr. Handelman and his staff are. Dr. Handelman's caring follow up calls are so helpful and greatly appreciated. Of course, the medical care I receive from him is first rate. I am always telling my many friends how happy I am with Dr. Handelman and the MDVIP program and I thought it was time that I let you know as well. P.S. It is now February l2, 2014, six years later and I will be 91 on Feb. 28th. This letter still holds true, if possible I am even more pleased.

Dr. Handelman has been there for me and my family for over 15 years. We were the first family to follow him when he became an MDVIP affiliated physician several years ago, and we are so thankful we did. He cared for my wonderful mother before her death and continues to care for me, my husband, and my 90 year-old father. Indeed, I would be at a loss without his thoughtful attention to our health. During emergency situations, no matter the hour of the day or night or whether we are at home or traveling out of state, Dr. Handelman has been responsive to all of us. When it became important for my mother to have Hospice care at home, Dr. Handelman with care and grace discussed this option with my mother and our family and then helped me during an emergency to contact Hospice. Five times when I have been out of town (HI, CO, NM,FL, and CA) and have had health issues surface for me or my husband, Dr. Handelman has been at the other end of the phone advising me. Even when Dr. Handelman has been out of the state himself, he has answered his cell phone and helped me and my family. We are so thankful to have him in our health corner. Without him, I do not know if we would have made it through some of the health challenges we have had. He is extraordinarily competent, caring, and professional. I have every confidence in him; he makes a difference in all of our lives.

Dr. Handelman is a very caring person who openly discusses all the medical issues at length but never in a rush. He gives us all the time needed to assess all possible approaches and outcomes. We need more like him.

My wife and I, both in our 80s are in excellent health due to the efforts of Dr. Handelman in Las Vegas, Nevada. He meets with us promptly and we find his advice to be sound and practical for all our needs. His staff supports him in the most cheerful and professional way.

My husband and I just love being patients of Dr Handelman. He makes us both feel so safe. I appreciate the fact that he is conservative in his practice and not one who dishes out prescriptions freely. We both trust his judgment very much and feel that our investment in our heath is paramount. The office is run very efficiently and his staff has been there for years which in itself speaks very highly of him. Kudos to Dr H and MDVIP.

I am 74 year old woman and have had Dr Handelman as my doctor even before he joined MDVIP. I am reasonably healthy except for the cholestoral problem that is a family thing. Doc and I have shared many a conversation on statin drugs and I have taken many of them he prescribed to find that leg cramps became a problem to the point that I would pass out in the middle of the night from the cramping. Doc and I talked about other ways to curtail my levels but I have decided that no matter what I take my levels will only go down to 193. I now take Milk Thistle and Tumeric plus some other vitamin suppliments and bought a treadmill that I use daily and walla I don't have leg cramps at night anymore. Doctor Mark is always supportive and makes me feel important to him as a person not only as a patient. I continue to work so I can afford his yearly fee, I just pray that when I do retire that I will be able to afford and continue his services.

I have been with Dr. Handelman for the past 18 years and have never found any other doctor with as much and compassion and caring. The nurses that work for him are really great. The doctor has been a life saver for me in the past dealing with depression and he understands me. I am lucky that my health has been fairly good but in a few emergencies I have only to pick up the phone to reach him. He is terrific!
