If I could leave 0 stars, I would. Horrible bedside manner, lack of care for patients having serious neurological issues. Luckily, by transferring to a different neurosurgeon and seeing a wonderful pain management doctor, I am finally being cured, and not overlooked, like Dr. Finger was doing.

I find it interesting that others had the same experience...very condescending and rude...I actually cried as I was leaving the office. I have never had such an insensitive doctor...needless to say, I did not stay.

In October 2008, performed a PLIF procudure L3, L4, L5, S1 on my back. August 2009 severe pinched nerve and shooting pain started occurring down (r) leg and severe burning in lower (r) back. Dr. Finger advised that one of my rods had slightly bent, but could not be the cause of my problem. Refused to see me again thereafter. Upon turning to the VA for treatment, MRI (r) clearly showed that at L5 - S1, arear had failed with material used to separate the disk had backed 3/4 the way out and was pushing against nerve. Three separate back surgeons has questioned me why Dr. Finger had performed such extensive surgery, and my only answer was that he had advised that once he got inside, my damage was a lot more extensive. One of the latter just shook his head. Since I have been informed by 4 independent surgeons that corrective surgery would come at a great risk, which anyone would recommend me taking. My change of gate has resulted in a hip and knee replacement requirement. (0) Stars.

I found him to be rude and condescending. My husband had neck surgery three times. I wouldn't recommend him to anybody.

I have been a patient of Dr Fingers for 20 years due to an mva in my teens. I trust him and I like how he doesn’t sugar coat things he just shots you straight. Highly recommend him any day.

He is one rude excuse for a doctor. My wife went there for back pain. Glad I went with her so I could witness it myself. I can't believe this guy is still in practice and I couldn't believe the way he talked to my wife. Condescending. We are changing doctors. I will not and can not be made to put my wife through that again.

Went there for back pain. He did a thorough examination, explaining what each test was for. He diagnosed the problem, gave options on how to treat it, what the expected outcome for each option would be. He is very personable, spends time with his patients, and cares about them.
