always love my visit with my provider

They are pretty good. We discussed increasing my Metformin dose. That is about it. He (the Doctor) checked my feet for sensitivity and we discussed removing tags on my eye lids and under my arms.

Dr. Finklestein is a terrific physician and person. Always listens, reacts, gives me the time I need.

Dr. Finkelstein is the best.

I don't understand why neither the health care provider or his office took a family history during my visit, which was my first visit to this provider/office as a new patient. Nor did the doctor ask about my family history; I had to volunteer some pertinent facts about my family history in connection with a medical condition. Also, the doctor did not assess or make any comment about the medication I take, which was prescribed by my old doctor; I find it odd that my medication was not reviewed, given that this was my first visit to this doctor.

He is always attentive. And shows much caring.
