Dr. Finkas is delightful to work with! She has prepared me well to face allergy season

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2016
I was very pleased with Dr Finkas. The tests run were inconclusive, but I am confident that she did all that she could. I definitely feel that she listened to me, that she was very thorough, and she gave me good suggestions. I appreciate all of these things.
