After decades, sewage solution promised -- Rivers, Nassau...

Agreed! What kind of people subject their families to such deplorable conditions and the only action they take is to complain? Why are they still there? Is it the money? There isn't an amount of profit or loss that would make me subject my family to such living conditions. Evidently you moved to Locust Valley - North Shore Gold Coast - to give your families a certain lifestyle and now they are living in slum conditions (according to your descriptions). Get it fixed or leave! Stop looking for a government handout.  (Mar 29, 2008 | post #14)

If not a realtor, how about the homeowner or their inspector? "Buyer Beware"  (Mar 29, 2008 | post #10)

Wow, does this father actually let his daughters play ball outside when the possibility of them stepping or playing in waste has been made a reality? I think the problem lies with his parenting skills and not with the town or county. Didn't he investigate the property and area before he bought the house? What about a family of 5 who won't use their dishwasher (doesn't running the water in the sink use more water than the dishwasher? That should really back up the system!), do laundry or take showers of more than 2 minutes? Sounds like a tenament situation. If this problem was so bad and has lasted so long why haven't they gotten the Board of Health involved? Sounds like a couple of disgruntled residents who don't want to compromise on their wants and only want the town to spend more and raise taxes. How many residents in the area? Don't any of the others have a say or problem with this? Dr. Nelson seems to not have a problem, how many other residents don't?  (Mar 29, 2008 | post #9)

Hit-and-run defense to seek plea deal

Yes, both families lose, but it is the fault of only one person - Mayer, that responsibility falls on his shoulders.  (Feb 20, 2008 | post #43)

Hit-and-run defense to seek plea deal

Mayer Sadian went to the police to talk about his role in the death of Dr. Seigel...his role was he hit the man with the car he was driving and drove away. Case closed. What other role could there be? Why didn't he just surrender when he went to the police?  (Feb 20, 2008 | post #9)

Nassau OKs takeover of 3 sewer districts

Are the financial problems that plague Glen Cove Suozzi's legacy from when he was Mayor? Mr. Suozzi trouble follows you and the citizen's memories aren't as short as you would like.  (Jan 15, 2008 | post #5)

Court found records discrepancies by Finkelstein in '04

I just got my second letter...first test came back negative. My doctor said no need to retest, think I might anyway, just to be safe and sure. Good luck!!  (Dec 19, 2007 | post #38)

The two faces of Harvey Finkelstein

This isn't about religion. This is about a doctor who decided to put patients at risk. This is about a man, not his religious beliefs. Get back on track! This man has questionable morals and patient care that is severely absent. Why attack each other? He is the villan - we are all victims, this extends past religious, race and economic factors. He is a non-discriminating offender!  (Dec 17, 2007 | post #49)

The two faces of Harvey Finkelstein

If he was too busy to pay attention to what he was doing, then intelligence should have dictated that he hold back on procedures. By the way, does anyone know how long it takes to switch to a new syringe or vial? I bet if he had to perform more than 30 of these procedures in a day, he might be spending another half an hour at most following proper medical and safety procedures. I would love to be the prosecutor when the defense's excuse is "he was too busy"! No malpractice or negligence there!!!  (Dec 17, 2007 | post #33)

Syringe probe doctor on leave from medical centers

The first two patients to test positive were traced back to Dr. Finkelstein starting the investigation. It may be true that symptoms for Hep C don't show up for many more years than have been traced back to Dr. Finkelstein, but the mind is an incredible tool. It can trick the body into feeling symptoms that may not actually be there or can take a disease out of remission. Don't diminish what other people are going through. So many of us are going through our own private hell because of this man, we all deal - mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually - in our own way.  (Dec 16, 2007 | post #38)

No one should believe that he started using safe practices at any time. Get tested!!!! Why would you care how much it costs? Don't you want confirmation as to your health status? There should be no delay, go immediately!  (Dec 15, 2007 | post #35)

Editorial: Reliable doctor rankings will help patients in...

The point of this whole thing is Finkelstein didn't follow the right procedures. Were the State and County Health Departments wrong? Absolutely! The fact remains that Finkelstein was the one who performed the procedures that infected his patients, both Departments of Health allow him to continue without consequence. Finkelstein violated his patients first.  (Dec 14, 2007 | post #10)
