A Closer Look at Dr. Feinfield's Philosophy & Approach
“Growing up in a family with a grandfather and uncle in the medical field played a key role in my decision to become a doctor. My grandfather was a pioneer in internal medicine and cardiology.
He introduced CPR to the West Coast, established the first cardiac care unit in California, trained the first paramedics for the Burbank and L.A. fire departments, and later served as chief of staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank, CA. As a young boy, I looked up to him, but it wasn’t until later that I realized the impact my grandfather’s eye for new inventions and techniques would have on my specialty and eventually my practice.
Beyond the desire to help people, I find no greater reward than seeing the finished, brilliant smile my patients wear after a procedure. I enjoy sharing others’ dreams, aspirations, and successes and doing what I can to support them. The connections I make with my patients are truly invaluable.
As one of the founders of Bella Vista ENT, I focus on the overall quality of my patient’s experience. I place great emphasis on the ultimate patient experience, using state-of-the-art techniques and technology, well-trained staff to educate patients and their families, and a relaxed compassionate environment. I like to use a dynamic, personal approach for each of my patients. I focus on discussing all treatment options available, and I involve the patient in the decision-making process. Each patient brings unique passions and dreams to the office. I customize each treatment to fit their specific needs. I love the challenge and knowing that I can rise to meet it. Furthermore, I am aware that my work can dramatically change a person’s life. It is an awesome feeling to be able to help someone on this level. As a surgeon, I continue to challenge myself and seek opportunities to find ways to better serve the medical field and my patients.
I know that being a physician is the most rewarding, fulfilling, and challenging commitment of my life but when I’m not in the office or the operating room, I enjoy spending time with my family, coaching my kid’s sports teams, traveling, and being a “foodie” by trying out the latest restaurants in Southern California.”
