I had a great visit with Dr. Finkel and his nurse Viviana was the most pleasant nurse I have met in a physician's office and I have been in a many offices. The women at the front desk were also most pleasant. I will be back and would refer others to this practice.

Dr. Finkel was on time and friendly. It is hard to find the qualities that Dr. Finkel offers in other practitioners. He spent time with me, not like most 'fast talking' doctors, and was able to answer all of my questions. Five stars for Dr. F. I will be coming back to Dr. Finkle for all my skin...more
