5 out of 5 stars Facial

Superb Doctor with Incredible Staff - Boca Raton, FL

I would like to state regarding my care during the pre and post operative periods from, Jayme, Christina, John, Joanna, Nicole, Valerie, Jim and last but hardly least, Dr. Handal.Though this past surgery was not my first, I am continuously amazed at the quality of care, amount of concern and above all unending patience extended to me by everyone as I whine about getting an appointment that coordinates with my schedule, the endless questions about each and every mark on my skin and just every minor concern in general. Nobody ever makes me feel that my concerns and questions are anything but important. Valeries pre-operative meeting was informative, relaxing and I left the office with a total lack of concerns and questions. She covered everything and made sure that I knew I could call her at any time with questions no matter how insignificant. As for post-operative care, I told Joanna at one point that she did not have to call me again because I was fine. She did not listen and continued to monitor me and I view this as above and beyond her job as she speaks with such concern and knowledge. Her calm demeanor, knowledge and compassion are the best healers. Jayme, Cristina and Nicole respond with the same compassion, concern and above all no question is too small for them as they go above and beyond to accommodate me with an answer immediately even when I tell them it can wait. Jayme your sweet voice never waivers no matter how many calls you receive. Johns smile and incredible hello, so good to see you is intoxicating and I believe that he actually missed me!! He is another member of the support group who goes above and beyond the norm contributing to my peace of mind and feeling that my care is of utmost importance. And Jim I am always amazed when I wake up feeling like I had nothing more than a good catnap. I dont know what you do but I wish you could put me to sleep every night. It is no wonder that surgeries dont take place without you. As they say, save the best for last, and that is you Dr. Handal. You have golden hands and a big heart to go with them as you extend constant compassion and display endless patience. It does not go unnoticed that you listen to your patients and manage to perform miracles even when they request you work within a budget. I know how much you did for me and it is more than appreciated. So ends my survey, but what I hope will never be an end to my relationship with the Handal Sanctuary Surgical Centre. With kind regards,

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

He is the Magic Man - Boca Raton, FL

I had a full face and brow lift with Dr. Handal as well as laser. Dr. Handal is simply the best. I am a compulsive researcher and investigated many plastic surgeons before selecting him. People I know with limitless resources told me how great he is, one said he had corrected a previous botched surgery done by another doctor and I could see that Dr. Handal had fixed everything beautifully....

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Golden Hands - Boca Raton, FL

I had a facelift 2 years ago and remain elated about my results. From the start the care by Dr. Handal and his staff was second to none. Following my surgery, the nurse spoke to me each day along with my periodic checkups by Dr. Handal himself. I now look like I did 20 years ago and people meeting me for the first time have no idea I have had ANY cosmetic surgery done! My face is extremely natural looking and I feel so much better about myself. My care was so good that I am now planning my Tummy Tuck. I will only go to Dr. Handal for future surgeries!

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Great Physician - Boca Raton, FL

I have been to Dr Handal many times for Juvederm. I also had a browlift done by him about 5 years ago. The results were fantastic for my surgery and my juvederm lasts about a year...much longer than expected. Everyone there is so professional. Love this office!

1 out of 5 stars Dysport

Dawn Beautiful in Boca Raton for two drooped eyelids with the skin hanging over the pupils from using Dysport

I want others to be aware of what can happen .. The Doctors are all in it for the money, some patients my get good results but there are thousands who don't, they are difigured with horrible side effects .. Once you sign those malpractice papers that they make you sign befoe injecting you, and you are disfigured, you Do Not Have A Leg To Stand On .. You Are On Your Own !! .. I blame myself for being stupid in having it done .. And I just pray to God, that this Dysport soon wears off, and I, and all the others soon go back to normal ..

I had an amazing experience.

I want to thank you personally, Dr. Handal, for being so gracious, sensitive and understanding as to my wants, needs and aspirations; and what I hoped to accomplish with the surgery you did for me. You were warm and caring before the surgery, answering all of my questions and concerns, which enabled me to be less anxious and very confident in what you were going to do. You went over and above...
