Dr. Finkel was fantastic with my 15 year old daughter. He listened to what she had to say and made sure she wasn’t in pain during nerve conduction testing. My husband and I were very impressed with how thorough and knowledgeable he was.

Dr. Finkle is extremely rude and arrogant. He is a "know it all" and is not interested in anyone's opinion except his own. I would not ever take my child to this hospital while this doctor works there.

Spent over an hour with us. Answered every question we had and explained his rationale for his opinions and suggestions. Treated my 12 year old son with respect and made sure to not only explain things to him but engage him. Incredible bedside manner!
