Ratings for Dr. Stuart I. Finkel
Gee, Diana May 2010, After I take you thru 2 healthy pregnancies on 6-MP for your Crohn's disease, (and get you presents for your babies), you don't pay your bills, and all of a sudden, I'm the "worst doctor in NY?" Have a nice life, Diana. And at least have the courage to sign your name to your self-serving nonsense.
This doctor is posting here (see below) and, while doing so, using the five star ratings to increase his overall average. I find this VERY inappropriate and very questionable. What is a doctor doing lurking here?! Apparently, there is some concern that this site is affecting his business/reputation and any doctor who'd worry about that is a doctor I'd be worried about!
In reference to the above rating: 1) No such complaint was ever filed by a patient or pharmacy. 2) Prescription allergy pills are given 1x or 2x a day. Inadvertent doubling of the dose would not lead to a "potentially dangerous level" as these drugs are now over the counter. Managed care companies frequently do not pay for prescription allergy meds because Claritin is OTC in both brand and generic form. 4) If such drugs are covered, most plans will approve one brand, and not others. What likely happened here was that I prescribed a brand that was not covered, the pharmacy called, and was told to prescribe "whatever brand was covered," NOT "whatever you want!" 5) I frequently prescribe "off label" drugs - if a pharmacist is not familiar with such use and calls, he is given an explanation, and told to "dispense as written." Why would such an evaluation be posted anonymously, instead of filing a complaint? Perhaps this was a drug abuser whom I would not accommodate. See healthgrades.com.
Gave me an allergy prescription, when I went to fill it the pharmacist said the dosage was at a potentially dangerous level and suggested that he confirm with the doctor. When he called Dr. Finkel, he got very angry that he was being questioned and told the pharmacist to do what he wanted.
