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!

Dr Finkelstein was fantastic! Being a new patient, they got me in the very next day after my phone call. Everything was explained to me clearly and he was very gentle. I can not say enough good things about my experience with him and the office staff!

I suffered with plantar fasciitis for eight months. Went to physical therapy and massage therapy for months. Went to a podiatrist who didn't help. I found Dr Finkelstein and got immediate relief from orthotics and splint. I wish I had found him sooner.

I saw Dr Finklestein due to a lot of heel pain from my standing on concrete all day for work. After evaluation, he fitted me for a pair of custom orthotics. He was great about repeatedly making small adjustments until they were just right. And they worked perfectly! All the pain is gone! What a difference the proper arch support makes. I'd highly recommend him. Thanks, Doctor!

I had terrible heal pain for over 2 years. To the point I couldn't walk at all. Seek treatment with 2 other drs previously. I seen dr Finkelstein and he prescribed insoles which relieved a lot of pain immediately. After 6 months he recommended surgery. Here 2 months after surgery I can now walk as much as needed. I would highly recommend him to anyone with foot pain.

I had foot surgery. Was well educated and the procedure went perfectly. Scarring is barely visible and range of motion is great. I wish I had done this years ago. I highly recommend!

I tried 2 doctors prior to seeing Dr Finkelstein with no success. Discouraged and not being able to walk or stand for any length of time my aunt recommended him and said I should give him a try. I made an appointment with him and after a course of about a year I was able to stand and walk normal again with no pain or discomfort. Thank you Dr Finkelstein for giving me my life back,

Dr Mark and his staff are amazing. I have diabetes and had complications with ulcers on my toe. He took the time to explain every aspect of treatment and options to me. I’m all healed up now and I’m kinda sad that I won’t be seeing him as much anymore. Dr Mark is not just my doctor anymore, he’s now my friend

Dr. Finkelstein has great bed side manner, he is always calm and willing to explain and re-explain your medical situation. I recently had my big toe joint replaced. The surgery went well and my follow up appoints were very educational. Dr. Finkelstein took time to explain what I needed to do so my recovery and function of my toe went as well too. I wish I could clone Dr. Finkelstein to be my primary doctor. I will definitely recommend Dr Finkelstein ! He is truly concerned about his patients.

I had sought counsel for foot surgery correction last spring. Dr. Finkelstein took nearly an hour to teach me about the foot, bones and why I needed corrective surgery. He explained everything in detail, even drew what he was explaining so I thoroughly understood everything. He is personable, extremely knowledgeable and kind. While corrective surgery would very complex and I've not decided whether to have it, my only regret was I did not choose him to be my surgeon. I highly recommend him.

Very knowledgeable, pleasant, personal care. Had a lot of foot pain that is now already almost completely healed after a few months of treatment. Dr. Finkelstein is very focused on giving great care so he constantly runs late, do I would plan ahead and call to know what time to show up and didn’t have to wait long. It’s worth it to get the great care!
