Had a long overdue colonoscopy,was extremely pleased with all aspects.Not only was Dr Finkleman's personal approach settling but also he has the members of his surgical team( anesthiologist,nurses,and others meet with the patient casually just prior to being taken to the suite but follows up post procedure prior to discharge with assurances and instructions. At 75 I was apprehensive,that went away in a hurry.Great team and Doctor.

Dr Finkleman is a wonderful doctor. He is very thorough. He has a wonderful bedside manner and really cares about the health of his patients. He is honest and caring. He will get to the bottom of what is going on with you. His staff is very courteous and helpful. They always make sure to keep you updated on test results. He was my Aunt's doctor. She passed away 24 years ago. He was wonderful to her also. He gave her the best care a doctor could give. He is an experienced doctor.

The empathy and care I have received from Dr Finkelman since my move here last year has been outstanding. This is not one of the easiest illnesses to discuss with someone, but finally I have found someone who makes it possible.
