I had big toe, joint replacement on both feet. Dr Finkelstein explained my x-rays, and procedure very well and thoroughly. Surgery went well, and pain subsided after a few days. He has great bedside manners, and explained every question in my follow up visits .

This was my first appointment with Dr. Finkelstein and I would highly recommend him as an exceptional podiatrist. He was very knowledgeable, thorough, thoughtful in answering my questions and provided excellent care. His office staff were also very courteous, efficient and considerate. Dr. Finkelstein and his staff are to be commended for their dedication to providing quality care to their patients!

I had a bunion surgery with Dr Finkelstein. I came to this office for a second opinion. I can not stress how he went above and beyond. He spent 50 minutes with me on the first visit. I can strongly recommend him to anyone. Absolutely one of the most experienced and professionals I have had the honor to meet. After surgery I am on the road to recovery after trying for two years with other podiatrists and couldn’t be more happy and healthy.

I found Dr Finklesteins office to be disorganized,do not return phone calls and the whole staff did not seem to care about my foot problems.I was assured my insurance would cover a part of my costs for the treatments,which didn't happen,it was supposed to be pre-approved and it was not.I'm stuck with shoes that do not fit and a $850 bill including the shoes.I would not recommend his office.
in North Tonawanda,NY |

Fantastic Doctor. Went for a second opinion, he was kind, courteous and took the time to explain my issues in detail. He listened carefully to my concerns and provided relevant information.
