The Doctor takes very good care of his patients. He always goes out of his way if you have a problem. Having been going to him for many years, first for an infection from broken glass, it started on a holiday weekend when no other Doctor would see my husband. Kept his office open to take care of the problem. In later years for diabetic ulcers. Would not consider going to anyone else.

Dr. Finkelstein is truly committed to his patient and wants to help them in any way possible. Our family has been fortunate to receive over 19 years of outstanding services and treatment to help alleviate the painful symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis and treat my foot pain so that I was able to go on my planned hiking trip to Grand Teton National Park in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Dr. Finkelstein has always been there for us whether we are at home or celebrating a special birthday in Orlando, Florida. Dr. Finkelstein return our call immediately even though it was after office hours. Fortunately, he advised us what to do to treat a sudden extremely painful attack of the Gout and called the local pharmacy in Orlando, Florida. Dr. Finkelstein highest priority is to take excellent care of his patients. We are thankful for his ability to provide the correct diagnosis, procedures and necessary foot splints, and custom made to provide comfort to your feet in walking and exercising again :)

Dr. Finkelstein performed an in office surgical procedure on the toenail of my big toe. This nail was consistently getting ingrown causing me pain at the most inconvenient times. After dealing with this for about 2 years, we discussed a more permanent solution and I finally had it done. The procedure itself was almost painless and the instructions I was given for aftercare were clear and concise. I am a few days post procedure and the toe is doing really well with minimal pain. I highly recommend Dr. Finkelstein to anyone who needs to see a podiatrist.

Dr. Finkelstein was amazing! I had to have both of my big toe, toenails removed, due to an old sports injury and I was incredibly nervous. Dr. Finkelstein took his time, made me comfortable, explained every step of what he was doing, was extremely gentle and did an amazing job. I honestly didn’t feel a thing! After decades of dealing with excruciating pain and embarrassing looking toenails, he took all that away and brought me so much happiness and relief. I cannot say enough great things about him. I highly recommend his expertise and professionalism! To make it even better, he’s also a very down to earth and friendly guy.

Dr Finkelstein recently performed neuroma surgery on my left foot. He was superb explaining the surgery and the recovery period. I was amazed that he called me to check in the evening after my surgery. His office is very well run and the staff professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone with foot issues.

Dr Finkelstein did bunion surgery on my right foot, as well as fixing a hammer toe. I had several follow up visits, as well. Dr. Finkelstein did a fantastic job on my foot, and he is one of the nicest doctors you will ever deal with. Super friendly and easy going, and my foot now looks and feels normal!

I have been a patient of Dr. Finkelstein for over 20 years and he is by far the best podiatrist in the area. He is thorough and knowledgeable and so respectful of me as a patient. He listens to me and explains procedures and has a "bedside manner " far above what you even hope to find in a doctor these days. His office is very accommodating in scheduling appointments. Truly a doctor that is in it for the right reasons. So thankful for him and his wife that shares the practice. A great team!

I am a new patient of Dr. Finkelstein and just had my second appointment. He has such a friendly, down to earth manner. He is very kind, extremely knowledgeable and comical. He has a great office team that treat all patients with respect and appear to have long standing great relationships with all of them. Very family friendly office with a friendly, warm atmosphere. My husband introduced me to Dr. Finkelstein as he was a patient with him first. Dr. Finkelstein already resolved my foot issue that I have struggled with for years and tried, what I thought was everything. What I needed was to start with him.

Dr. Finkelstein recently performed surgery on my right foot to correct a crossover toe. My big toe was laying on top of my second toe. He explained everything about the surgery at pre op visit in terms I could understand. He came to see me before surgery and took the time to seek out my husband in the waiting area when it was over, which I thought was very kind in this time of COVID. He clearly explained what the goals were for the week at each post op visit and I am happy to say that the results are excellent. I highly recommend Dr Finkelstein. I guarantee you will find him very personable and you will come away respecting his work as much as I do. Great job Dr. Finkelstein!

I had a really bad ingrown nail for months and was completely tired of the pain and infections. I only have a few weeks left before moving away, so I really need to see someone quick. My supervisor had recommended Dr. Finkelstein and had told me what a great job he did on her. So I made an appointment and the staff was super nice and accommodating. I had my ingrown nail removed today. I will say that I definitely entered scared and worried that it would hurt. However, to my surprise, I left super appreciative of the staff and Dr. Finkelstein. They kept me laughing and at ease during the whole procedure. I would definitely recommend him to everyone!
