My husband was seen by Dr. Fincke in the past and that is why I requested that my physician refer me to him. Both my husband and I were impressed with how thoroughly his examinations are and how compassionate he iswith his patients. Without reservation, I would recommend him to family and friends. Kelly C

Awesome. So glad I switched doctors. He got me scheduled right away for all procedures and sent in new perscriptions. He also took into account the meds I would be taking since we are trying to get pregnant. Not only didhe get me the meds I need now to deal with the issues but is trying to treat the reason why by getting me in to see another specialist so hopefully I wont have to stay on meds forever. My last doctor just threw meds at the problem and that was it. All the staff were nice and very efficient also.
