I was diagnosed 10 years ago with Parkinson's Disease. It was actually Dr. Finkelstein who first diagnosed my disease. Of course, my diagnosis was confirmed by a neurologist. However, Dr. Finkelstein noticed I was not swinging my right arm when I walked and my right foot did not travel as far as my left foot when I walked. Dr. Finkelstein's diagnostic skills were demonstrated by… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
- 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.

Dr. Finkelstein has been my physician for many years, long before he became a MDVIP physician. As my friend, we share telling one another about events that might be of interest to one another. As I get older (now 86), he is always there to help me manage a few problems and keep on functioning both socially and professionally. Thanks in part to his help, I look and act like a much younger man… See more
Dr. Finkelstein is an outstanding physician. Not only is he knowledgeable, but he is very personable as well as being an excellent listener and educator. My husband and I both go to him and feel a great deal of confidence in him. Without a doubt, he is one of the best physicians I have ever had.
I have been encouraged to exercise more and maintain my weight to try and not go over the pre-diabetic line. It is comforting to know that I have one of the best in his field and not having to worry about who we will be getting with the health insurance the way it is going.
I've just celebrated my 80th birthday so I've known a lot of doctors during my lifetime, many of them not so good. I can say with confidence that he is providing the best medical care I have received during my lifetime. He is not just knowledgeable, but also kind, understanding and a regular guy I've not yet needed to call him in the middle of the night but I have a great… See more
Dr. Finkelstein has really been great to work with. He works along with my Naturapath and between the two of them, I am getting fantastic care. Dr. Finkelstein diagnosed a huge and painful problem that I had with my jaw BEFORE he was with MDVIP. I had an infection that he diagnosed right a way when no other doctor did so. He is very pleasant and VERY knowledgable and I feel very comfortable… See more
We appreciate Dr. Finkelstein for his thoroughness, availability, friendiness and
courteaousness. What is really nice, we can reach him at any time and especially
when we travel, it is nice that he can put us with another doctor if we need one. He always has time for us, to listen and explain our questions about our health issues. Thank you Dr. Finkestein
Dr. Finkelstein has been our primary care physician since the early 2000's when we moved to the Tucson area. When he joined the MDVIP program in 2010, we couldn't imagine starting over with another doctor -- assuming we could even find one as caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, and thoughtful as Dr. Finkelstein -- so we followed him to his new practice.
Dr. Finkelstein has… See more
