Michael J. Finkelstein, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a physician, I believe these concepts are very important:
  • A partnership between physician and patient is critical to developing unique approaches customized to your individual needs and preferences.
  • Working with you, I guide your path to better health as you make choices about your lifestyle habits and behaviors.
  • Self-care is as important as, and often more important than, physician-prescribed treatments.
  • In addition to diagnosing and treating, my job is to educate, coach and support.
  • Waiting List This MDVIP physician is currently at patient capacity. Please call MDVIP at 1-866-696-3847 or search for other nearby doctors currently accepting patients.
