Feel sorry for this gentleman who became a doctor but didn't learn how to connect with a patient, show compassion, answer questions to the point and spend more than 3 minutes with the patient before moving onto the next patient. Definitelywill not return to him, he looks depressing and treats patients with indifference.

I was very satisfied. Doctor and physicians assistant were very knowledgeable. . They looked over and reviewed my daughters xrays from the hospital before they came into the room to examine her. I will definetely recommend them to others.

My second appointment at the office. Experience was as the first. No wait time. Took me before my scheduled appointment time. Everything you need is right on premises X-ray MRI etc and physical therapy is just a few doors away. Leftthe office and went directly over to physical therapy and they already had all my paperwork. Nothing to fill out. That's a plus in my book. Very organized. Great experience.

First visits take time. There is paper work involved. Once that was done, I was called in minutes. I will be returning for follow up services; however based on the interaction with the administrative staff, who were highly professional; knowledgeable;gracious; including the medical team who performed various tests, etc. I with say without question it doubt that his clinic is on the ball. Thank you.

Dr. Finger was excellent.He greeted me at the examining room door and,after evaluation,determined that I needed to have my knee drained. I really liked that the office took x-rays of the knee prior to the examination..I'm sure that it saveda little time and guesswork. I was very glad to be able to book so quickly and easily and would recommend him to anyone in need of orthopedic care.
