Dr Fineman did not address any of my concerns going into my visit. Not one question I asked was answered and the conversation was steered into the direction that he wanted it to go. He had his mind set from the beginning of what I was there for and stayed on that path. Huge waste of time.

Dr. Fineman is an excellent Neurologist, he is compassionate and professional. I have been treated by him for over 10 years for migraines and other conditions. I have recommended him to some of my family. They like the way he takes time to talk and explain what's going on. He is an excellent doctor and person.

Dr Fineman is an amazing physician and would recommend him to anyone. His office staff on the other hand needs some education on patient satisfaction. My son had to insist she contact Dr Fineman or covering physician, she said it will have to wait till tomorrow (if it were her parents I'm sure she would not wait 24 hours). To top it off she ended the call (hung up).
