Amasig doctor! He helped me a lot!
Doctor left mid-appointment to go work with another patient. This took at least 10 minutes. I don't appreciate a long interruption during my appointment.
Very thorough and thoughtful initial visit. Highly recommended.

He is a great doctor!
I stepped out of the appointment very happy to have found a Dr. with such a knowledge and experience on his craft. Definitely recommend him.
Dr. Ira Finegold is a brilliant allergist. He is warm, calm, and understanding. I have been to other allergist who were subpar and did not get to the root of my problems. He accurately treated my allergies and I am glad to be on the road to relief.
Dr Finegold spends a lot of time with you! Very understanding of personal concerns. Overall, an outstanding experience.
Dr Ira Finegold was very considerate and caring. He meticulously took my medical history, listened carefully to everything I had to say and in a way that enabled me to feel at ease and comfortable with expressing my symptoms, hypotheses, fears. He then did a thorough examination, and his initial diagnosis as well as the treatment he prescribed was straightforward, and immediately effective, without requiring me to go through the ordeal and cost of multiple tests, exams, prescription drugs etc His consideration, care, and gentle courtesy are personal, non-generic, and he really cares about his patients.
Doctor feingokd was wonderful. Took the time to listen and made a plan of action. I wish all doctors were like him.!
He was great, well worth the wait! He seems so knowledgable in his field and I feel confident that I will receive quality care with him. The initial meeting was thorough and the location is so convenient. Karen was so pleasant from her initial email to the moment that I left the office. This location also has great parking. I had no issue making an appointment. Overall, I have no complaints.
Dr. Finegold is incredibly knowledgeable, extremely thorough, and a very kind person. He listened very carefully to my long medical history, and connected the dots where no other doctor had. Overall, I recommend him highly!
HE SEEMS TO BE VERY KNOWLEDGABLE AND THOROUGH; A PERSON INTERESTED IN HIS FIELD AND PATIENT'S PROBLEM. SOFT SPOKEN. NOT AN ALARMIST.
A superb doctor, one of the best doctor's I've ever seen. Incredibly knowledgeable and really takes the time to understand your problem.
BEST ASTHMA DOCTOR HANDS DOWN!! First time I've ever been to a Asthma specialist ...The most important thing was be brought me into his office to talk and discuss about what's been going on with my asthma and breathing, Doctor DEFINELTY still has a passion for helping patients I recommend him to EVERYBODY!
Dr. Finegold was wonderful. As a new patient, I had expected a quick in and out appointment. The Doctor didn't rush me, had a thorough discussion/exam, it didn't feel rushed at all. I'd highly recommend him to friends/family.
Having never been to an allergist before, I did not realize that bringing in Cayenne pepper would be needed. The doctor let me go to the store and get not only Cayenne pepper but other peppers as well. This was a great idea. Overall the appointment was VERY helpful and appreciated.
Excellent doctor. My son was a little bit nervous because of his first visit by alergologist. Dr.Ira Finegold was very gentle, patient and very nice. My son even want to come back to finish his alergy tests.
Dr. Finegold was amazing and a very amiable and cool doctor. He answered all of my questions patiently and did not show any sign of impatience. Will definitely go see him again for allergy-related problems and suggest everyone else go see him as well. My only caveat is that Zocdoc kind of messed up my appointment with him but that is not their fault. Just call them beforehand to confirm that they got the reservation. Everyone there was very attentive and happy so it shows you that Dr. Finegold takes care of his staff. Also, his office doesn't open until 1:30pm because of lunch break, so if you have a 1:30pm appointment, don't be surprised if you have to wait outside until 1:30pm for the office to reopen again.
Very thorough exam / testing. He finally gave me a CORRECT diagnosis and treatment plan when other MDs didn't seem to take the time to figure out what was really going on. He changed my life!
I highly recommend Doctor Finegold. The other reviews here are for allergies, but I saw him specifically for Immunology. He took a lot of time to go through my history, symptoms, and questions. No symptom was too small. Other doctors tend to be patronizing and assume if you don't have a medical degree you're a dummy. Not Dr. Finegold. He spoke to me in a thorough and knowledgeable manner and I understood him every step of the way. I feel he has my welfare in his best interest.
He is wonderful! Highly recommend him!!!!!
Dr. Finegold was great. He asked me questions regarding my family history and tested me. He also listened to my concerns and gave great recommendations in regard to my allergies. Overall great bedside manner. I highly recommend him.
Dr Finegold was attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant. I came in with terrible nasal allergies and he made sure to test me for what I was allergic to and then gave me a nasal spray that really helped. He took his time explaining things to me and made me feel very comfortable.
Really friendly and professional. I was particularly pleased that he took a good amount of time to ask every question that could be relevant. He was thorough about the examination and about making sure he covered all the bases to solve the issue.
Awesome. The doctor is Knowledgeable, professional, and has a very courteous staff...
Dr. Finegold is a truly fantastic doctor and an incredibly nice person.
I really liked Dr. Finegold. The wait was due to inclement weather the day of my appointment. I would recommend him to anyone with allergies.
Dr. Finegold is the type of old school doctor who takes the time to truly get to know the patient and really cares. I highly recommend him.
What an amazing Doctor...he found solutions to my problems and took the time to listen. Highly recommend him!
He was very personable, agreeable, friendly- nice :) Most importantly very helpful with the concerns I had and made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions. All of the other staff in the office were very nice and helpful too.
When I arrived this morning for my 8:30 appointment I was told that my appointment was at 11:00 and that Dr. Finegold was not even in the office yet. Not sure where the mix-up happened, but that was very disappointing. Also, the receptionist was pretty unhelpful, bordering on rude. I will not be seeking another appointment with Dr. Finegold, and if I did, I wouldn't use ZocDoc because it doesn't seem the two are in sync. (I would still use ZocDoc for other appointments, though.)
This is my first time seeing an allergist and found Dr. Finegold on Zocdoc, he is just wonderful and shows concern about your allergy. He takes time with his patients but I never had to wait longer than 30 minutes. I highly recommend him. He is awesome.
Dr. Finegold is a warm and knowledgeable person who is able to piece together disparate pieces of information to try and determine the cause of problems. Very thoughtful and deliberate. Excellent manner with patients.
