Dr. Fineman and his staff are wonderful.. The wait might have been long but they were very accommodating
in Upland, CA |
I was sent to Dr. Fineman's office after one year of horrible back pain. He talked to me about what I was going through and gave me his recommendation after seeing my results from the MRI. I was not able to work or live my life so when he recommended surgery for my L4 and L5 I said yes. I found him to be very nice and easy to talk too as well as Jennifer Birch his assistant. I am doing great and so glad I put my back in their hands. Thank you so much for giving me back my life.
