As a physician myself, I greatly appreciate Doctor Handler's compassion and clinical skills. He is dedicated to his patients and their concerns. I consulted him for treatment of a malignant lesion on my ear lobe, which he removed with a very satisfactory cosmetic result. Highly recommended.

Excellent Doctor. Very patient with questions, polite, thoughtful. He has been my doctor for about 8 years. During that time, he has treated me for fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, broken capillaries, irregularly shaped moles, eyelash enhancement, lip enhancement, a severe burn, and a scar on my face. He is well versed in dermatology, liposuction, and laser hair removal, as well as plastic surgery. Dr. Barry also works as an emergency room on-call surgeon during his off hours. Set aside some extra time for your appointment as he is very thorough and will discuss all aspects of your treatment and what to expect. I highly recommend Dr. Barry and his staff. The office is serene and the appointment is always a pleasure.
