Dr. Fine is rude, impatient, condescending, and arrogant. She treats people who are suffering from mental illness like garbage, and actively makes them uncomfortable. Do not waste your time going to this "doctor." Both she and her front desk assistant are rude. Why does she ask for cash payment when my insurance covers her? She always cuts the appointments short and never seems to be listening to you. When you ask her, "Why?" about anything, she becomes defensive, as if you are questioning her authority. What is that behavior? Maybe, she should try seeking therapy for her issues. If you are tired of your job, you shouldn't take it out on others. Consider retiring.

I continuously get rescheduled and blown off. Last appointment was rescheduled three times with long periods between appointments. I had to request medication; it would have run out before any appointment. The appointment I was supposed to have this Monday was cancelled and rescheduled for Tuesday via phone. No call. I called Wednesday and was told I'd get a call that day. No call. I called Thursday and was told the same. No call. It's Friday, I'm out of meds (so discontinuation syndrome is a real possibility if I don't get a refill), and no one is answering the phone. The secretary is consistently curt and never apologizes for their own errors or trials they've caused others. As I write this, we're in a pandemic: COVID-19. I'm working from home and my infant isn't in daycare due to quarantine. We can't leave the house. The state has a stay-at-home order. This is definitely a worse-than-usual time for this sort of lack of respect and duty when I need medication for anxiety disorders.

She thinks benzodiazepines are the DEVIL when in fact they are Jesus’ Pills. She wont even write scripts for Ativan. Go to Dr. Lorshbough to get your Ativan and other necessary benzodiazepines. Alla is an dum dum.

My daughter is permanently scarred from seeing this doctor for 5 minutes a few years ago. Keep adolescents away from her at all costs. She is insensitive and rude. We have come across other people who have also seen this doctor and had the same experience.

Initially Dr. Fine seemed - well fine - but over the course of seeing her for a year her office became overly crowded - I don't mind waiting a few minutes but every appointment the wait was at least 1/2 an hour - and Dr. Fine's attitude changed dramatically. A typical office visit was 5 - 10 minutes - she is just "churning and burning" patients and it is showing in her attitude and professionalism. The last straw was when she blatantly lied to me and made me feel as if it was my responsibility to handle my prescription refills even though she refuses to give long term scripts (so you are forced to see her if you want your meds). How stressed does a DR. have to be to lie to a patient about their meds? I actually feel sorry for Ms. Fine - I refer to her as Ms. because I don't believe Ms. Fine is a Dr. any longer.

Stay aware. What type of MD takes CASH only even though she accepts Insurance? Also receptionist is so rude and not helpful at all. I ended up canceling. Someone with mental health concerns should not have to deal with a shady dr and rude staff

Dr. Fine, Made me feel comfortable right from the start. Her concern for my well being was apparent and appreciated. When I left her office my stress had already started to dissipate.

Wonderful doctor. I feel better just walking in the door, serene, calm, happier, hopeful. Even better after spending my appointment time with her. Thank you. Your front desk nurse is especially wonderful too.

Explained things as if I were two years old. I felt very rushed and asked a question she had a answer but not to my question then said “okay I’ve explained enough, we’re done here”. She was also pretty aggressive toward being on Xanax when I don’t even want it, felt bullied about something I don’t even want. Whole visit was about 15 minutes.

Dr. Fine is always very personable and easy to talk to. The receptionist, Michele, is very nice and helpful. It's always a smooth process when I go in and not a lot of waiting time. :)

I have never had to wait more than ten minutes, and Dr. Fine was always welcoming and concerned about my welfare. I am in treatment for alcohol addiction and she is expert in asking pertinent questions about what's going on in my life. I would definitely recommend her. Anne

1st thing I noticed she didn’t greet me when I had to walk alone down her hall to her room. Didn’t stand up or didn’t close door until I suggested since I am in the mental health field. She saw I was a MSW and all smiles for about 5 minutes, but as soon as she saw my former doctor had me on a benzeodizopine she freaked out is all I can say. She was trying to bully me, loudly called me a name. I was shaken by this. She even said “let’s go, I will refund your money” and she walked out! Shocked

I have had wonderful experiences with Dr. Alla Fine. She takes as much time as a patient needs and never has pushed someone out because they took longer than their 15min time slot. (Thus, some people complain about long wait times). She does more than just throw medications at symptoms and trys to provide a solution. She doesn't tolerate being lied to or misled which is something I value, others consider this being "mean". Overall she is by far the best psychiatrist I've ever had.
