Gave the impression he didn't have time for me, despite an empty waiting room, responding to my mention of a "few concerns" with "How about just one?". I nearly walked out of the room right then, having carried with me for months grave concerns and worry. No smile, no friendliness. Everybody has a bad day now and then, but when people seek out a doctor, they are usually quite vulnerable and scared. I'm going somewhere else where hopefully I will feel as though the doctor wants to listen to me and the concerns that have brought me there. If he's retiring he should do it ASAP.
Dr. Feinstadt has been my doctor since birth. He helped my mom through a difficult miscarriage due to an incorrect diagnosis by a different doctor and he was also the doctor that helped deliver me 20 years ago. To this day, he is still the only doctor I will see without any fuss or anxiety. He is very kind and gentle hearted.He can come off as a very dismissive person, but he's actually just a quiet person. When it comes to his medical help, he's always been spot on with me. I'd recommend him as a family doctor over many, many other doctors.
This guy practically gave me c diff. For those of you who don't know what c diff is. Clostridium difficile is a deadly bacteria that causes severe diarrhea that results in many deaths worldwide. The main cause is irresponsible doctor prescribing Well know antibiotic that will cause c diff. In my case, clindamycin. I walked in with a swollen elbow and ended up with c diff. Another doc prescribed Flagyl. Which of course failed and with piles of side effect. Finally I asked them to prescribe vancomycin and I am back on my feet. Now I see doctors no better than lousy plumbers.
Nice guy, good doctor as far as GPs go. He's pretty thorough and helps you to feel at ease. He believes in a good diet and lifestyle unlike some of the pill pushers out there. And he helps find solutions which is what docs are supposed to do. More need to be like this.
Great doc. It's too bad he is basically retiring and no longer accepting patients. He's friendly, caring, thorough, and polite. He had great bedside manners and even helped me to get set up with a doc who is accepting patients. The only drawback is the fact that he works in a highly disorganized walk in clinic. Aside from that, I have no issues :)
Dr. Feinstadt has been my doctor for over 30 years and has saved my life by his diagnosis. he takes a very comprehensive and holistic approach to medecine rather than just dispensing pills to treat symptoms. he is very thorough in his prescribing tests before making a final diagnosis. he is the best.
I've been a patient of his for 25 years. Due to sheer logistics I have been forced to see other physicians which I regret. His diagnosis is always correct. He is extremely experienced, confident, friendly & shows great empathy. I don't mind being rushed because when it is important, he always takes the time. His colleagues are also great & if & when he retires I will continue coming back to the clinic.
