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.

Upon the recommendation of a close friend, I chose to investigate Dr. Finkelstein. During an interview in his office he explained the advantages of MDVIP.

At my first visit, while going over my drug and medical history, he asked if there was anything presently bothering me. I explained the symptoms, he looked over my medications and told me to stop taking one of them the next day. The… See more

Dr. Michael Finkelstein is a terrific doctor. My annual physicals are comprehensive and afterwards I receive a written summary of all my medical findings. I have received an immediate appointment & treatment when ill and always prescriptions when needed. I am very lucky indeed to have Dr. Finkelstein as my doctor.

from John in AZ February 7, 2014 for Michael J. Finkelstein, MD

Dr. Finkelstein was my primary before he joined MDVIP, and I liked him, so Joined the MDVIP group to keep my doctor. I am very glad I did, I like the personal attention I get at his office. I am never rushed when there. Fortunately I don't have to see him often, I guess that is because he keeps me in good health.
Thank you Dr. Finkelstein.

from Janet in AZ February 5, 2014 for Michael J. Finkelstein, MD

I adore Dr. Finkelstein! I have a difficult, sensitive body to manage. What may work for other patients, may work adversely for my body. Dr. Finkelstein has been quite willing to think outside of the box. He does not treat me like I am on a factory assembly line. He works with me, listens to me, and acts on it. We work together to develop the best plan for my body. He always spends… See more
