I have been going to Dr. Finkelstein for a long time now ,I fined him to be an outstanding Doctor, not only does he really listen to you he is an Artist when it comes to giving you a shot in your joint, nerve block or giving you an epidural in your spine to help with the pain ! I get needles that go through my T7,T8 and T9 which go as close to my nerve as possible to help with my pain that burns all the way down both legs and goes under my heels .My T7,T8and T9 are pushing against my spinal cord and my Neon foreman nerve and I could barely walk. Now since I have been going to Dr. Finkelstein I am walking without my walker or cane and my quality of life is awesome ! I like to stay active as much as possible not only for my health but I enjoy doing things with my Grandchildren which now I am able to do which means a lot to me. I never thought I would be able to do this until I went to Dr. Finkelstein , so if you have real chronic pain Yes I highly recommend going to him.

Dr. Finkelstein will drop your black a** like a hot bowel of grits! He treated me ONCE, and discharged me from this practice! See any other doctor besides him. He wasn’t a good listener, and to be quite frank, he didn’t care what I ha to say, his mind was made up. I’m in a tough situation right now, but I have hope. I’m 100% sure that I can find another, more qualified, compassionate, understanding, non-judgmental, doctor than Dr. Finkelstein!

Dr. Finkelstein was great. Very friendly, knowledgeable and explained things well. I didn’t feel intimidated instead I felt comfortable and at ease. I appreciated his approach to my situation. Nowadays, some Drs will “assume” and treat but he was not like that. He was “old school.” He said: “get tested, let’s see what we’re dealing with then discuss treatments.”
