About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Fine is a talented doctor. The mental health care I had before saw Dr. Fine was not ok, and it was complicated as I did not receive coordinated care which I needed. When I first saw Dr. Fine she treated all of me, not just my mental health issues, but also explained to me how they relate to MS. She helped me find out that I had sleep apnea She coodinates my care which I value greatly. I feel my more confidence in my care with Dr. Fine and the other members of the MS Center that I see as they work together as a team.

I was over the moon impressed with Dr. Fine. She took her time with me so that I never felt as though she needed to move on to the next patient. She was compassionate, solid in her knowledge and very thorough. I left feeling incredibly cinfident in her abilities and her care for me. She gave me a very detailed plan including follow up with my GP and then with her again. She's an incredible combination of really knowing her stuff and still being human. I'm very grateful to have been able to receive care from her.
