Dr. Feinstein performed my routine colonoscopy this past week. What a great experience for something I was not looking forward to! Prior to the procedure, he walked me through what would happen and answered all my questions. The procedure went great - I highly recommend him for his wonderful bedside manner and patience.

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.
