I have referred Dr. Hand to many people, including my family members.
Looking forward to collaborating with this individual in the coming years!
Very good.
He has been my doctor since 2002.
Dr. Hand makes me feel like I am his only patient. He is a good listener and a good communicator. I feel we are partners in my health care and decisions.
Dr. Hand is extremely empathic, intelligent and kind. I cannot imagine a finer doctor and consider myself very fortunate to be his patient.
Even the 1 hour commute in ugly traffic won't convince me to change doctors. Dr. Hand is the best!
Dr Hand seemed distracted and asked me if about another healthcare provider [...]? I had no clue what he was talking about. Also, it appears at my last visit my AIC results were high. This had skipped his attention. I had fallen thru the cracks. I came away feeling as if I was a patient for that moment and that my whole health picture had been ignored. I appreciated the answers and treatment for the problems I brought up during the appointment but the A1C and reference to another provider was disconcerting. I am considering switching physicians.
Dr. Hand is interested in me as a patient and a person. Good rapport.
Dr. Hand is the best doctor; I've every had. He has the best bedside manner. Very professional and caring I would follow him; if he left GMBC.
I feel a lot of trust in Dr. Hand.
Dr Hand has been my physician for many years always explains things and listens to me
Seemed distracted on my last visit. had to remind him to order blood work, asked for blood pressure to be rechecked at end of visit, did not happen. did not inquire as to whether I needed refills on my prescriptions.
Simply He is the best
Very satisfied.
He is a good and courteous professional.........
I fully expected a complete physical exam. I was given a Medicare Wellness exam. Doctor did not explain the difference between the two. I had to go online to find this out. All previous doctors listed some of my ongoing health issues as the cause of the visit and Medicare paid for a complete physical exam. I waited four months for this appointment as a new patient and now I don't have any information on blood work or other facets of the physical exams that I routinely got from other physicians annually. He put the stethoscope on my back to check my lungs and I waited for him to ask me to take a deep breath. He did not ask, but just put the stethoscope into three of four locations. In a follow-up phone call he said that's what he usually does unless the patient is having lung issues. Every physician or physician assistant has always asked me to take a deep breath. A relative of mine in the health care area said she never heard of such a thing and you cannot tell anything about lungs without a deep breath. In that follow-up phone call we decided we were not a good match philosophically. I think we are not a good match because he is not a very competent physician. When I asked why there was no actual physical examination, he said that's what he and any other physician in his office would do. All he had to do was explain that anything beyond a routine Medicare wellness exam required some specific physical concern like my BPH or urinary retention problems. All the other doctors provided a complete physical based on such reporting
