My experiences with Dr Fine have been very good over the years and I trust him with my health more than any other doctor I have seen. He knows the right doctors to send me to if I need a specialist too. Friendly and efficient staff in a small personalized office.

I love having Jen as my Primary Care Physician. She is a sweetheart and doesn’t make you feel like just a number. They feel more like family than Drs and always do the best they can to help in whatever way they can. Absolutely recommend them.

Dr. Andy Fine and his staff have treated me nothing less than excellent since the day I found them. It is not easy to find a good doctor these days, and I knew that I had found a good doctor when I met Dr. Fine. I have a serious back injury and he was the first person that I saw that said I didn't need surgery that there were ways around it.

Dr. Fine was incredibly friendly and professional. He took time to get to know me and was very efficient throughout the appointment, meeting all of my needs and answering all of my questions. He was right on time and the appointment went smoothly and I was pleasantly surprised at how little time it took to get in and out of the office.

Been here twice in the last week with my fiancée to address some ongoing issues, and each time have been very pleased. Front desk staff was courteous, MAs were all very personable and nice and both providers (we've seen two NPs) were very helpful and good listeners. Will definitely return to the office in the future!

Benefits from Treatment by a Primary Care Physician

Why should individuals seek chronic disease management support? Simple. It saves money, improves a person’s quality of life, and even prolongs an individual’s life span.

When a chronic illness is well managed, it prevents disease complications that may require expensive imaging, surgery, or even hospitalization. However, when patients adhere to their primary care doctor’s prescribed chronic illness treatment plan, individuals gain improved quality of life and extend their life expectancy.
