Verified Patient Reviews
DR. Fine made me feel at ease right away even though it was my initial visit after being with someone else for a long time. She advised me I was actually taking one of my meds wrong and said we would decide on future courses of treatment as we go. I feel comfortable continuing with Dr. Fine.
There were 5 others waiting. Office wasn’t prepared. Waste of time.
It was very informative!!
I thought my visit was good, but did feel a little bit uncomfortable when she distrusted my ADHD history and wanted past medical reports - maybe because she does addiction therapy/treatment she has a predisposition to treat others like addicts. There were a lot of people taking drug tests in the office. Also I expressed that I'll need a long term psychiatrist to monitor my meds and then when I came on to book another appointment, it looks like she will be in Florida for the next few months. I went to her Philadelphia office and now I feel like I need to see someone else to be able to have continuity.
She was outstanding...the entire experience was inspiring, positive and very professional. I would recommend Dr. Fine without reservation to anyone. She is that impressive and awesome...DON
Dr. Fine gave me the worst advice I have ever received in my entire life. She did not listen to me and misinterpreted what I told her. Go anywhere else.
Drove 30 minutes to the office to find out they only take CASH or MONEY ORDER for copays.. the copay I had was expenisve with my insurance. Rip off. Sketchy.
I just saw Dr. Fine as a new patient - she's the only doctor within traveling distance who takes my insurance so even though I had to wait almost 2 hours before seeing her, I didn't really have a choice. Honestly, I was seething when I finally got to speak with her, I wanted to hold the grudge through the whole appointment (waiting two hours, come on...) BUT - I couldn't stay annoyed. Dr. Fine is the sweetest woman and I connected with her immediately. She listened to my long and winding tale of previous doctors and diagnoses, and I could tell she was on my side the whole time. She explained everything she prescribed, and walked me through her plan for next steps. It was a short appointment, but she was wonderful and despite my initial thoughts, I highly recommend her.
my appointment was at 1:15 i wasn't seen to 2:15 i don't feel like she attempted to help me in anyway all she did was ask me questions and at the end she was like ok thanks. I was very confused and had to ask if i was supposed to make a follow up visit or what it just ended with a thank you...super weird and awkward ending
Dr. Alla Fine did have quite a wait ( seemed it was a bit backed up) however it was worth it. She was very kind, calm and helpful. Her presence was gentle and i felt she was a good listener.
I've never left a bad review in my life but I feel like people need to know this.This doctor is extremely rude, worst Doctor I've ever been to in my life and that is no exaggeration. After trying to get a call back from the office several times Dr. fine calls me to yell at me and interrogate me, never have I been spoken to by a "professional" like that. I expressed to her that it was very important and that I would lose my job if this info isn't sent in and I had just gotten out of the hospital but she seemed to not care at all and continued to argue. Even in my office visit she was questioning me about my size and talking to me about losing weight when I didn't even mention that about being an issue. She made me feel very uncomfortable. Considering she see's sick people all the time you would think a doctor would show some empathy. She is in the wrong line of business and needs to learn some respect, I will never recommend her.
She is consistently late but an hour with her appointments.
Dr. Fine got right to the root of my problem. She is absolutely the best!!!
Dr fine is a very professional, kind and caring doctor. She is very knowledgeable in her field. I have seen many psychiatrists in my life and none of them have taken the time to dig deeper to do test and rule out all causes. I drove 140 mi round trip to see her twice and will continue. God sent
2nd visit with Dr. Fine. After one week of changes, I noticed my mood and energy improve so much. I'm looking forward to my next appointment. I really enjoy her company.. Definitely would recommend.
Ease of comfort with her. She talked about what's going on, and gave an explanation of any questions I had. Was my first time seeing her, and will return next week for a follow up.
