Dr Finkelman may perhaps be the best neurologist I have seen, and I have seen many since attaining a brain injury in 1976. Many factors make him the best. He is kind first of all and very down to earth, but match that with his high intelligence in his field makes him the go to neurologist. I would take his advice in any field as he is an all around smart Dr.

I was in ICU at Holy Family of Merimack Valley and they called him in due to a migraine I was having. I loved him and went to him every since!!! Then got letter he retired, was so upset, went to one of the doctors in group got letter from and WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. WOULD NEVER GO BACK TO THAT GROUP AGAIN. While going through lists of local neurologists I FOUND HIM. So excited and will definitely go back to him.

I have stenosis of the spine which does not require surgery at the present time. Also lower bulging disc. For 3 years, I have experienced an abnormal feeling in both my legs and feet. By 9:30 In the morning I would be in so much discomfort. It was affecting the quality of my life. The med he prescribed has changed my life. I forgot how good I should feel. I will miss you. Wish you would go back into practice. You and my primary care are the two most knowledgeable, caring doctors not many like U
