Dr. Finkelstein always listens and explains information very thoroughly. He is a excellent doctor!!

My PCP, Alan Finkelstein, is an outstanding physician. My efforts to recruit him to move to Santa Barbara (I am leaving Pittsburgh for the West Coast in 2 months) have, sadly, been unsuccessful. That does not mean I will stop trying. He is attentive, engaged, and always knows my medical and emotional history. Occasionally he has asked me to "refresh his memory" about some specific, but he always knows the overall picture and context.

I have asked Dr. Alan Finkelstein about removing the remarks that I'm depressed. It is totally false and I saw Dr. Charles Reynolds prior regarding lost. I also saw Phil Phelps. Why is this still in my chart?

I like Dr Finkelstien, however, I think that we could have completed my visit in one shot. I went for my checkup as well as to receive a shot in my finger. Only received the shot.

Dr. Finkelstein does the best he can with my complicated health history.

November 05, 2018

I thoroughly enjoy my time with Dr. Finkelstein, and I realize that because of my kind of health insurance and the number of patients that he sees, my time with him is always limited. I respect him for that and it's alright.
