Provider took time to explain procedure recommended.
Superb.Highly intelligent, educated and personable physician. I drive over 40 miles to see him. I could go to a doctor closer to where I live, but choose not to due to dedicated thorough approach to whatever the problem is. A fund of information, always, always improving his knowledge.

I asked many questions and he patiently answered every one of them with detail. He is one of your best, thanks Dr. Fingado.
He is a great doctor! Listens to you and tries to offer solutions to your problems - never in a hurry - makes you feel as if you are his only patient.
dr fingado is always a caring and concerned dr. Have been seeing him for many years about hand and wrist problems. I would not go to anyone else as long as it is possible.
Very very good.
