How likely are you to recommend Dr. Finkenberg?
I recently had neck surgery a week ago from a fall a few years ago with Dr. Finkenburg. He is a very good surgeon and has much experience with spinal surgery and is highly regarded by his peers and those who work with him at the hospital. I researched him very extensively before choosing to have the surgery. He was very good to speak with and first suggested other means to relieve my pain which I liked a more conservative approach. After exhausting all options and reviewing current xrays and mri he said surgery was necessary. He explained what needed to be done and answered all questions and put me at ease the appt before my surgery. He’s truly an asset to his field and I highly recommend him for spinal surgery. I’m recovering now and can tell the surgery has helped already. I also want to say his office staff Stephanie, Deja, Lisa and the insurance individual at their office (sorry can’t remember her name) were very nice and have always been very helpful. Thank you all.
