"I have been a patient of Dr. Harvey Finkelstein since 2000 and I can't stand all the negative things being said about him."
"......He didn't have to do that, I wasn't his patient.":
Well, which is it?

The letter writer saw Dr. Finkelstein in his office, however, he was not Dr. Finkelstein's patient while in the hospital, i.e., letter writer was not admitted to the hospital under Dr. Finkelstein's service, he was there for another reason.

As a Registered Nurse, I can attest to the fact, that doctors who have the nicest bedside manner, are the worst, and most incompetant, doctors.

They make up for their incompetance, by having a wonderful bedside manner, and endear their patients to them. I have lost count of the number of patients who have told me "how wonderful Dr. X is", only to have to hold back my tongue so I wouldn't say how many patients Dr. X killed through their incompetance. And the cover up by the hospitals regarding the mistakes.

Nurses know who the good doctors are, and who isn't. If there were strong Federal "whisle blower" laws, and nurses weren't worried about being fired in retalitation, it would be on the front page of every newspaper in this country how this stuff is covered up and allowed.

That also goes for hospitals, and the short staffing that is dangerous to your health.

Thank you, Jay. A re-reading on my part confirms what you said. However, Dr. Finkelstein has not been accused of "not being a nice guy". It's his technical office practices that seem to be the issue.
