Specialties

Dr. Terri H Finkel has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Rheumatology
  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I have never in my dealth with such an amazing doctor. She treated my daugther and I with respect throughout the entire visit. She talked to my daughter and listened to her, that is relly hard to find in a doctor. Nemours is a beautiful hospital and her staff is amazing. If you want the best care possible for your child, call Dr. Finkel, she is compassionate and knowledgable. I felt so compfotable with her and my daughter did as well. I have several freidns that take their children to Dr. Finkle and they are all very please and very happy!!

Don't waste your time waiting

This doctor should work with prison mates not children. She has the bedside manner of an ice queen. We waited 3 months for this waste of an appointment. When trying to find the triggers for our child's constant pain and swelling, she was rude, interrupted us, hand shushed us and inferred that our child's pain was psychosomatic when in fact our child has been recently diagnosed as suffering from late stage Lyme Disease. A very serious illness we suggested she might have that was taken very lightly from a supposed professional.

Amazing, wonderful and caring doctor. Rare find!

Dr Terri Finkel is the most amazing doctor I have ever met. Wonderful bedside manner, listens to concerns, works with parents so that they understand all their options when treating their child. Very intelligent and thorough. I did not feel rushed through like a number. She actually gives her personal phone number to patients. This is a one in a million doctor with true care for her patients.

Trusting Caregiver

My child was diagnosed with LUPUS in 2006 & after receiving an immediate appt at CHOP I couldn't have had better luck than to have Dr Finkel as my childs Rheumtologist. She answered every concern, made both of us feel at ease & I will always be grateful for her method of care for my child
