Dr. Finkel hails from the Philadelphia area. He attended Penn State University where he continued his high school love of running by joining the track team. After earning a degree in Microbiology he went to Hahneman Medical College for his MS. He then worked for E.R. Squibb as a microbiologist until a family friend encouraged him to apply to the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine (now Temple). After a residency at Oxford Hospital in Philadelphia, he headed for the sun and opened his practice in Venice and Arcadia.
Thirty three years later, he still feels grateful for the wonderful life Florida has given him. Dr. Finkel divides his free time between his many interests including tennis, gardening and his rescue dogs. Family and friends are the bedrock of his life.
