Dr. Finkelman takes the time to know his patient. Is down to earth and professional therefore making the patient more at ease with sharing their medical issue with the Doctor. Have never felt rushed. Dr. Finkelman made an accurate diagnosis when no other doctor could or would take the time to dig deep enough to resolve the problem. I highly recommend Dr.Finkelman as a caring, knowledgeable and professional Doctor.

Great dr.

I've been seeing Dr. Finkelman for over 20 years for epilepsy, he has keep my seizures under control for 20 years. He listens and talks and very understanding. He is one of the smartest doctors I have ever known. He has now retired. He will be missed...

True Professional

Dr. Finkleman helped to diagnose a movement disorder that was also related to my chronic insomnia. Although he couldn't really do much for me because my issues were outside of his expertise, he went out of his way to refer me to a physician who was able to treat me. Finkleman has since check in with my new physician to ensure that I'm doing well. I would recommend him to anyone.

This doctor has no problem starting someone on narcotics but after he gets in trouble he cannot let you know that he is decreasing or stopping the medication himself

Two Stars

I have seen this doctor quite a few times and now I am so sick of hearing whenever I go in about how I need to change my primary doctor because he does not know what he is doing. I have thought about letting my primary doctor know that the doctor he referred me to is bad mouthing him but I never have.....I am re-considering. The more I see him, the more I realize he is not much of a doctor
