I was a patient of Dr. Finkel 21 years ago. He helped me overcome symptoms of closed head injury from a bad car accident. I still suffer symptoms but know that things would have been much different for me had he not believed in and supported me through one of the worst times in my life. He introduced me to biofeedback which I still use to this day to reduce stress, anxiety and headache. Para-spinal spasms are still an issue and cause me great pain. But Dr Finkel taught me to cope. Thank you.

Dr. Finkel has been my Neurologist dealing with my chronic daily migraines & fibromyalgia for at least 8 years. He is a caring, professional with an excellent bedside manner, downright funny at times. But also takes his work very seriously! He is only Neurologist who has been any help to me since 2004. Always upon latest meds & treatments. Caring staff & everyone there always willing to help you. Beautiful, comfortable & most important for people with pain, quiet office. Would highly recommend!
