I am a chronic pain sufferer and I suffer every minute of everyday.Why? Because Dr's are afraid to write an RX for pain.
Think about it,Do you think this guy was investigated because of used needles? No. The only reaason this came to light was because of pain killers. I don't stand up for this guy,he's a douche.

What 2 faces? He worked 16 hours a day, b/c he was a workaholic and needed to pay for his malpractice insurance, not because he was a "nice guy". Putting hundreds of lives in danger...guess being "close to God" really paid off to ya there Doc, eh?

the need to do large volume medicine to pay enormous insurance bills stemming from malpractice? It seems that Finkelstein ran his "business" like a Costco, banking on profits derived from the large volume of patients he "treated." Everyone now sees where that business plan led - dangerous procedures, cost-cutting and just plain old incompetence. If anyone deserves to have his license to practice medicine revoked, it's Harvey Finkelstein. He should have gone into the dry goods business.

I'll bet you he was responsible enough to hide all of his assets so that no one can get a dime from him for suffering he has caused.

Bet he is responsible enough to have a shister lawyer to cover his butt in this situation.

But if someone shoots him in the head, they'll but that person in jail for their crime while he continues to walk free for his crime.

Don't want to sound like a bigot, but doesn't his behavior reinforce all of the typical stereotypes.

I guess some people just can't be trusted. Want to know why Long Island, New York and the nation are going down the tubes. Just review this case. This "doctor" is just like the leadership in this country. Indifferent, protected by money and lawyers and Arrogant.

How can anyone have any sympathy for such an individual.

"While Finkelstein has remained publicly silent, he has communicated through his profile on the physician Web site run by the state health department."

Where is the link?

The two faces?? Same face to me.
Why isn't he behind bars? Why does he still have his license.
WHAT ARE THESE TWO FACES? I see one face-one brain-he's not only incompetent-he's dangerous. After dozens of articles-we got that! Now, let the authorities do something about it-him and all those that covered this up for years and years. I read the story of the 52 year old woman that died of lymphoma because he didn't bother to look at her sonogram...What Dr says-go right to the hospital for an 'epidural'!

I went for two epidurals in Melville. Both times I got relief. As he couldn't know the full extent of my spine condition and only responded to my complaints, I have to say he did a very professional job.

The bottom line is I had stenosis and it had to be dealt with. every doctor, without exception said to try everything before being operated on. I was even interviewed by a staff psychologist before going for the epidural.

No complaints fromm me. It is the damned system that forces doctors to put these cases on an assembly line basis.

You can look for him at the New York State Department of Health website. Google it and do the search you want. His info is there.
