I switched from another physician that I did not care for to Dr. Finkelman. Boy am I happy that I made the change! Dr. Finkelman listens to me; educates me and I feel 100% comfortable with him and the staff is great!

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.
