I first saw Dr I’m several years ago on referral from my rheumatologist. I have a history of allergic asthma and was a former smoker. I quit smoking in late 1988 and had been a distance runner since about 1990. Dr Im was amazingly thorough in evaluating the condition of my lungs and prescribed a treatment regimen that permitted me to continue to run for many years. He followed up routinely, each time providing me via US mail with a written reminder of the treatment plan. I relocated to another city and recently returned after several years. I re-established myself as a patient of Dr. Im (he remembered me and my condition) because of the excellent care he provided.

Initially, I was very satisfied with my original appointment and diagnosis. However, when I attempted to get an emergency appointment for a serious bout with my Asthma, April, 2019, I was informed the earliest I could get in was August, 2019.

Dr Feinstein recommend on 2 Dec 2015 called to get a Sleep Study done and I was told that the first available appointment was 18 Feb 2016. After almost 3 month, I did not hear from the doctor office. When I can call that they could find me in the system and the appointment was not for the Sleep study that Dr Feinstein ordered but just a consult. No one called me in 3 months to confirm the appointment nor to get additional Health and Insurance Information. What a waste!!!!!!!!
