I love love love this office! They are professional, yet friendly and caring about each individual patient. I have been going to this office for 2 years and the reason I have to go is unpleasant, but Dr. Fineman and his incredible staff make things so much easier and better to deal with. As a patient, they make you feel so comfortable. Not only that, the dynamic in the office is phenomenal. Everyone has their jobs and they all work together so well. It's a great vibe, that they put out. Thanks for everything, Newtown Square Office!!! Love ya!!!

I was referred by my Ophthalmologist for a partially detached retina with 6 tears to my only eye with vison. That was many years ago. Have not had a problem since. He saved my eyesight.

Lisa – Jun 15, 2021
Dr. Fineman and his staff are beyond exceptional and could not imagine being treated anywhere else or with another doctor. Ever since my treatment began with Dr. Fineman, I have seen much improvement and continue to receive positive results. This has not been a very pleasant journey for me when my issues began and under the care of another doctor/practice. My greatest regret is that I did not find Mid Atlantic Retina and Dr. Fineman from the start. I am completely indebted to Jack Scully at Wills Eye Hospital for introducing me to Mid Atlantic Retina. What a wonderful team and completely satisfied with my overall experience and treatment. Dr. Fineman has the best chairside manner and makes me feel at ease during treatment. It is evident he takes great pride in his work and is both professional and compassionate. The relationship between Dr. Fineman and his staff show much respect for each other. True greatness, I AM LUCKY!!!

Mitchell Fineman did not get my diagnosis right. I suffered as a result of his ego and mistakes. At another facility, in the city, I was properly diagnosed, treated and now my eye is visual and I am well. Please do your research before choosing this doctor as your retinal specialists
