Been a patient for years

I have been seeing Dr Finkleman for years.. I wouldn't go anywhere else and would wait all day to see him. He is very careful and leaves no stone unturned. His staff is wonderful. I have never seen anything but smiles and professionalism come out of thoes girls. Obviously the last person didnt know what they were talking about, because that is not the same office. Why is it everyone is quick to point fingers at bad experience and not the great... I highly recommened this Doctor and all his staff.

You have to wait a very long time up to two hrs.His staff is very unprofessional & quit rude. He will add unnecessary visits so he can bill to get the most revenue for each patients. He will change his diagnosis each time you see himhim due to him being over booked & money being his main motivation.

Try to treat to many patients with so little time. Good intent, just impossible to juggle so many people at one time.

The wait time is a little long, but that's because he is is an excellent doctor and in high demand. I don't mind the wait, knowing I'll always receive excellent care.
