Dr. Finger did my surgery on my ankle when it broke. I went back to him a year later with the pain very bad and ended up having another surgery on it, to remove the hardware in it. He told me going into it he could not promise it would help, but I was willing to give it a try. Most doctors would have gave you pain pills and told you, “there’s nothing I can do!” Thankfully he found the problem and I don’t have that pain anymore.

(Gigi) Mae Ortiz in Picayune, MS – Jul 12, 2017
He showed me the x-ray and said I need a knee replacement. Then prescribed 12 therapy sessions, with his affiliated therapy group, and said if I did not complete all 12, my insurance may not cover the knee replacement. The therapy sessions were a joke. About 1/2 hour each, the therapist did one exercise with me and simply told me what to do on the rest. I needed 12 of these? I think it was a ploy to get more $$ from the insurance company. I maxed out my deductible, giving almost $500 to him.

I love Dr Finger . He has been instrumental in keeping me mobile. He has a great bedside manner. Always has the latest treatment options. I also see Dr Butler at the same office. He is wonderful. But the front office staff do not always reflect the care and concern of either the doctor's or the nurses in the back. The in take staff at the front desk where caddy when I ask about the expected wait after the first 1hour.

Dr. Finger did surgery for a torn Rotator Cuff - I did physical therapy with his office and am back to full range of motion. My experience with Dr. Finger and his staff was amazing. I have recommended Dr. Finger to several people (family & friends) who have all had excellent results as well.
