Dr. Finegold is fantastic! He knows his patients and he takes time to get a full understanding of what's going on with them. He doesn't just jump to conclusions and he's not about getting his patients in and out in 5minutes flat. He really cares, he's a great diagnostician, and he's a rare find. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Finegold is super kind and patient. His staff is very helpful! I came here twice so far and always feel very welcomed. I came in the first time for an allergy skin test. This was my second appointment in thisoffice because I needed the doctor’s help to figure out if I developed an allergy to certain food. I was very frustrated before my visit because my PCP said nothing medically is wrong with me even though I know something must not be right. Dr. Finegold was so patient and took the time to think about what it could be. For the first time with this condition, I didn’t leave a clinic thinking that I am crazy to say that I have pain. He did a few tests to rule out some things but nothing came up. He suggested we will do another test for something else he suspects in the next appointment and also gave me a referral to a radiologist to rule out some other thing. I am very satisfied with his service. He always answers all my questions very patiently and listen to my concerns. If you ever come to this clinic (which I hope you would if you need an allergist), and you happen to wait in line for a while, know that he is doing his best for the one patient before you. Same as he did with me.

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.

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 agreat idea. Overall the appointment was VERY helpful and appreciated.

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 seehim 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.

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 tendto 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.

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.)
