      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Feinstein's Care Philosophy

      As a Gastroenterologist, I feel it is imperative to spend a significant amount of time with the patient to understand their issues. I have a very calm demeanor and use as much as possible a practical approach to solving the problem.I have a unique gift of simplifying concepts which allows the patient to participate in making decisions on the approach to solving their problem and their treatment plan.
