The Good Doctor (as he is fondly referred to among his many patient fans) has made a huge difference in my personal healthcare experience and in my overall well being. His attention to detail, his availability, and his words of encouragement help to keep me on track! And his supporting cast gets 5 stars. Ive had a few blips on the screen since Ive been a patient of Dr. Finkelstein and his… 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.

Due to frustration with the low level of personalization of service provided by a local healthcare organization I reached out to friends/neighbors for recommendations. I was very impressed with the consistent high marks that Dr. Finkelstein received not only for his medical knowledge and expertise but for the personal relationship he develops with his patients. I am in my second year with his… See more

One example of Dr. Finkelsteins impact on our lives:
While we were on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico Glenn fell and fractured his femur. We were at a loss as to what to do! We did not know the extent of his injuries and did not know if we could find good care in Cabo. We phoned Dr. Finkelstein and he very quickly researched medical care and recommended a Cabo hospital. During Glenns… See more
For some reason we always seem to need him on a weekend. It's just amazing to us that we call and he answers the phone personally! He always takes care of us no matter when and no matter where.
Thanks, Dr. F. We love you!

Dr Finkelstein has been our doctor for more than 20 years. He is keeping me and my husband healthy year after year. Several times recently, he talked to me over the phone about my health issues. He and his nurse always answered my husbands messages as soon as they receiveed them. We both are over 80 years old. Having Dr Finklelstein as our doctor, we feel safe. We wish him a

Dr. Finkelstein has a caring attitude which is shown by the time he is willing to spend with me. He is willing to listen and discuss all concerns. When a Doc is willing to give out his email address and cell phone number, saying this is how you can contact me 24/7, that in itself says a lot about his character. Dr. Finkelstein is a rare find.
Michael Finkelstein is one of the most conscientious physicians my husband and I have experienced. He has always exhibited outstanding medical skills as well as care and understanding in our medical conditions. One example occurred this past summer when we were led to believe by another doctor that a growth in my lung was possibly cancer. It was a stressful experience and when I saw Dr.… See more
