Suffering from a severe flare of Crohns disease back in 2013, I was feeling hopeless as no doctor could help me turn around my symptoms. After spending 9 weeks in the hospital and losing 50+ pounds I was ready to commit to having surgery. At the age of 23, I was told that I was way too young to already have a surgery for my Crohns disease, but I was out of options. Dr. Finkelstein, took the time and care to help guide me back to good health with no surgery! He is the most incredible doctor ever!

Dr. Finkelstein was recommended to me by another doctor that was having difficulty with my diagnosis and the best way to treat it. Dr. Finkelstein was kind and thorough and within 6 months I am feeling so much better. After almost 2 years of sickness and hospital stays, Dr. Finkelstein had me up and going again quicker than I thought possible. He listens and obviously knows his specialty. I don't know where I would be without him.

Saying that Dr. Finkelstein is a fantastic Doctor is a major understatement. When I was in the ICU for two weeks three years ago with a 105 fever and severe UC symptoms due to a CMV virus and C-Diff he came to see me every single day. He went above and beyond to make me better. He spent countless hours doing research and talking to colleagues to come up with the best treatment plan. He saved my colon and my life. He often tells me that I am very lucky and I agree, I'm very lucky to have him.

There aren't enough characters in this box to explain from where I was to where I am now. I was told prior to visiting Dr. Finkelstein by other doctors, We know we can take out your colon, patch you up, and you'll have a semi-normal life; but before we have to do that I want you to see someone else who can try and mediate the internal battle your body is having. From never leaving the house for a few months to now probably eating and doing too much of what I shouldn't - Thank you Dr. F.

I have UC and have been treated by Dr. Finkelstein for 20+ years now. It is because of his treatment and dedication to me that I have live a normal, vibrant life. He is always apprised of the latest therapies and takes the time to answer questions.During my time in his care, I have had three beautiful, healthy children. Dr. Finkelstein has always coordinated my care with other doctors such as my OBGYN, and even other docs have praised his dedication and knowledge. He is very special doctor/man.

Dr. Finkelstein saved my life 9 years ago. I was admitted to the hospital with an abdominal mass and they wanted to me to undergo surgery without a diagnosis. I was in the hospital for 10 days without an accurate diagnosis. I was referred to Dr. Finkelstein's office the day I was released from the hospital and he diagnosed me with Crohn's Disease and I have been in remission for approximately 8 years. He is truly a miracle worker. He's the most caring & competent doctor & is #1 in my book.
in Randolph |
I was treated for chrons/colitis for about 10 years with another dr and he couldn't help me at all. Dr. Finkelstein has saved my life. The 10 years under his care, I am in complete remission and can enjoy and also have my life back. I am,forever grateful to him.
in Belleville, NJ |
Before seeing Dr. Finkelstein I was seeing another gastroenterologist who did not have my condition under control. I was in constant pain, always trying new medications, and always had flare-ups. I ended up having to have emergency surgery because of this. Since treating with Dr. Finkelstein my condition is under control. I am no longer in daily pain and he found a medication that works for me. I am grateful to have found Dr. Finkelstein. I honestly don't know where I would be without him.
in Monmouth County, NJ |
Very rude, dismissive, ignored test results, and did absolutely nothing to help me. Misdiagnosed gastritis as gastroperisis and put me on medication that I didn't need, which also has serious side effects, and the wrong diet. He told me that I should be happy I didn't have Crohn's Disease and escorted me out with literally a pat on the shoulder. I left his office in tears and immediately found a new gastrologist who has helped me control the symptoms of severe gastritis and cyclic vomiting.
When I first saw Dr. Finkelstein, I was in very poor health due to inadequate treatment from a previous doctor. He has completely transformed my health! He never lost hope even though my case is very tricky. He is extremely knowledgable, takes the time to explain everything, and always has my best interest in mind when selecting treatment options. I know that he is personally vested in my well-being and health, and I highly recommend him. My family and I are forever grateful for his service.
in Blairstown, NJ |
At the urging of getting a second opinion, I ended up making a big mistake coming to this guy. Very rude and did not help me at all when I was having a flareup with my UC. I went back to my regular gastroenterologist.
