Patient Comments (3)

63 year old patient with Diabetes. I was very impressed with the level of information that Dr Finkelstein provided. After more than 20 years of doctors visit he was the first to ever take the time to fully explain what that really means to be a diabetic and how it affects my foot health.

I highly recommend Dr. Finkelstein to anyone. He has that bedside manner that makes you feel your problem is the only one he is interested in. Never rushes, explains what and why. And most importantly knows what he is doing.
