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.

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.
