Patient Comments (4)

I had an old injury that got infected and opened up. I went to another Dr that did surgery, hoping it would get better. Sadly, it got worse. Then I came to see Dr. Finnegan and he was very straight forward with me. He did surgery and my wound started to heal immediately. I’m very happy with him...more
