Dr. Feinstein is the best doctor I've ever seen, and I've been seeing him at least twice a year for 14 years. He takes whatever time is necessary when I'm there, carefully listens to everything I need to say or report on, and is completely non-judgmental about everything. I feel wonderfully taken care of, and know I can count on his help when I need it. Breaking thru my profound resistance, he performed a colonoscopy last year, and even the prep went smoothly. In short, he's the best.

I have been a patient of his for 25 years. He is the best! A very dedicated and caring physician.
in Inglewood, CA |
Dr. Feinstein called me twice to inform me of test results. At each appointment he thoroughly discussed tests, as well as, my health condition in clear understandable terms.
