so glad to have a doctor to help with my sleep issues.

I have been having sleeping related issues for 30 plus years and have seen many providers. Dr. Lina Fine is by far the doctor that I have seen.

09/27/2017
Dr. Fine is fabulously competent and compassionate.

Dr. Fine knowledge of the side effects of my medications makes me trust her judgment implicitly. [...]

09/21/2017
Dr Fine is very helpful. I am very confident in her ability to care for my condition and to help me get better.

09/13/2017
I always have great care with this Dr.

Dr Fine is too busy to get an appointment within 3 months. She also needs to find other solutions for my problems outside of the Swedish universe.

08/22/2017
unusually great listening for all that I had concerns about. never rushed me while asked her questions.

07/24/2017

Dr.Fine is an incredible healthcare provider.

06/19/2017
Dr. Fine gave me confidence that she was extremely knowledgable about all things related to my health issues regarding sleep. Very proper, good use of time, listened well to all my questions and even if not directly related to the immediate concern, gave me good answers without taking too much time. Perfect.

05/22/2017
Dr. Fine has been my sleep doctor for a long time. She's helped me very much. I trust her absolutely. I feel she and my cardiologist are my two most important physicians
90

05/17/2017
it takes a ridiculous amount of time to get an appointment or test done.
100

04/12/2017
Dr Fine is amazing. She seems to genuinely care about her patients. She is compassionate and very comprehensive. She always takes time to patiently understand how I am doing and I believe this approach has led me to be healthier. If all doctor's had the time and patience to have a conversation, not just ask questions, I think all patients would be healthier. After seeing many sleep specialists with little success in weaning off my sleep medication, Dr Fine has not only helped me wean off, but has given me hope for a healthier future.
100

04/03/2017
Dr. Fine has done a tremendous job in helping me to find a balance in my life. She works with her staff to provide a friendly atmosphere. Every appointment I have she is always courteous and makes sure to do her best to make any negative aspects that may be occurring in my life disappear.

Excellent Doctor and well run clinic experience to date

02/20/2017
Dr Fine suggested for me to try [...] for sleep and it is good for anxiety. And it does help! I am very thankful for that!
100

02/16/2017
I have recommended her to half a dozen people already.
100

01/21/2017
Dr Fine goes so far beyond what I could expect from my physician - a truly extraordinary physician.

01/13/2017
Good.

Again, I am very please to be a patient of Dr. Fine.

12/12/2016
Not sure she believes husband's diagnosis and converses with his other neruologist.
100

12/12/2016
Great. The reason Dr Fine was able to help me wean off sleep medication is because she is very smart and listened to me. She looks at the "whole" person, and this ultimately results in better care. I always feel like she cares how I am doing and that she genuinely wants to help. I also appreciate that I have a bit more than 15 minutes with her, or so it feels that way. Complicated medical appointments cannot be solved during a 15 minute appointment.
90

12/10/2016
Fair in likelihood of recommending this care provider only because it is so difficult to get an appointment with her.
30

12/07/2016
She told me take melatonin but then didnt prescribe it
70

12/06/2016
My answers are qualified by knowing I have almost no options as far as who I can actually, reasonablly see for this healthcare matter. This is not just because of financial affordability/insurance in-network provider limitations, but also because it takes a truly unreasonablea mount of time to see a neurologist sleep specialist to establish care int he first place (approximately 8 months - if you keep calling to check if there are any appointments that have opened up due to cancellations).
100

11/09/2016
Dr. Fine is amazing.

11/09/2016
i have already recommended dr fine to 3 people

I completely trust and am glad I get care from Dr. Fine. She has helped me get & stay well after long illness.

Very thorough/attentive.
