I had a great experience with Dr Finkelstein and his staff today. I’ve been in a lot of pain For a while and honestly have felt slighted by the doctors that I had previously gone to because I rate my pain honestly. Since I am not actually on fire I don’t rate my pain a 10/10 and really felt like no one was listening before I saw this doctor today. I had faxed my paperwork over early and was happy to hear that he actually looked at it before I got there. I feel as though a lot of doctors go in blind but that wasn’t that case today. His staff was so kind, courteous and I was even seen before my actual appointment as I was told to get there thirty minutes early. Dr. Finkelstein took time to speak with me. He heard my concerns and came up with a plan that I was comfortable with. I really felt as though he listened to me and felt compassion regarding my concerns. I feel a real sense of relief knowing that I have someone in my corner now. Thanks doc and nurses

Terrible staff never return calls and when you finally reach them they say it’s not important and refer you to another number which they never answer

This Person was so unprofessional , God like complex , would rather fix laptops than people. He didnt look up out of his laptop except for the last 5 minutes of a 15 minute appointment that I was there on time for but waited 2 hours to get in to be seen. He belittled , and said I was lying about my pain. I hope he gets a job hes good at . Medical field might have been to keep his parents happy. In worse pain then when i started. Got spinal epidural in which he injected right into the nerves. ??

Acts like he works off commission. If he can't do an injection into your spine he doesn't want to know you. Doesn't have a clue how to handle patients with multiple issues. Also the man doesn't look you in the eyes when talking to you he has his face glued to his computer screen.

Dr. Finkelstein and the entire office were very accommodating from getting me in for my first appointment, expiditing necessary insurance approvals to pre & post procedure steps/follow-up. He spent ample time explaining the cause of my pain and the steps that would be taken towards resolution, all while making me feel extremely at ease.

Dr Finkelstein takes the time to get to the source of the pain. After my first injection I was able to resume walking every day and enjoying my days instead of working around my pain all the time.

I have lumbar stenosis. Dr Finklestein offered SNRI injections and told me I would be back to normal afterwards. He told me I would not experience any pain during the procedure. During the procedure he reassured me again that I would only feel slight pressure. The injection was excruciating and all of my symptoms have been worse since I've received them. During my follow up visit, the only thing he did was offer more injections, which I declined..for obvious reasons. I do not trust his decisions
