Dr. Fine and his intern were both great.
Patient | December 1, 2016

follow up visit for roseacea- he did not even examine my face- he simply asked if i felt it had improved - he took my word and refilled my medication. said to come back in 1 year - i would have thought he would have actually examined me! So I paid $20 for him to take my word and refil my medication
Patient | November 22, 2016

I recommend Dr. Fine highly!
Patient | November 22, 2016

Very prompt visit and Dr. Fine and his resident were awesome!
Patient | September 19, 2016

I felt as though I had wasted my time. I am currently looking for another provider.
Patient | August 23, 2016

Again, the only negative about this office visit is having to wait 6 months for the appt. even though I am a Vanderbilt employee.

Patient | August 1, 2016

Over booked - to busy and wasting my TIME!
Patient | July 28, 2016

He was great. I came in for a skin check. I have a family history of melanoma and I love the sun. I was pleased that he did not preach to me about my sun exposure which I was already aware of. I found him to be very personable and he answered all of my questions.
Patient | July 25, 2016

very good experience
Patient | June 21, 2016

Patient | June 21, 2016

He was great
Patient | June 15, 2016

My experiences with Dr. Fine and his staff have been exceptionally positive.
Patient | May 10, 2016

On this visit, he spent maybe 3 minutes with me. I was amazed how quickly he came in, took a quick look and left. I'm not sure why he even had me come in.
Patient | May 9, 2016

Dr. Fine is great. Love him. But sometimes he can be a bit quick with the appointment and he's a fast talker with lots of medical terminology. But I still think he's the best.
Patient | April 15, 2016

The attending's behavior was clinically acceptable, but I expect more from my Vanderbilt community. Vanderbilt has a reputation for excellent care. Excellence isn't measured only by the number of RVUs, but the care provided to each patient. I felt as though this was the case during my most recent visit.
Patient | April 1, 2016

I was treated promptly. I had a 0830 appointment. I got to clinic at 0815; I was in the exam room and intake was done by 0825; Dr. Fine entered, pointed to the examine table for me to sit on, ask me what my problem was. I pointed to a spot on my face. I saw it, explained what it was, and that it would get bigger and darker, but that he could freeze it. He saw two other spots on the side of my head, near the ear. He asked if I wanted to freeze it. Yes. He did. Anything else? A spot on my upper leg. A motion with his hand for me to take down my pants. He saw the spot, said it was the same as the face. Freeze it? I said no. With that he left. Total time spent with me, seriously, less than two minutes. No greeting, no introduction of himself, no handshake, no hi, kiss or boo. I was walking out of the clinic at 0830. I didn't need more than he did. It was his mannerism and production line attitude that turned me off.
Patient | April 1, 2016

Dr. Fine is always in a hurry. I was recently diagnosed in the ER at Vanderbilt with having shingles on my nose. I still have a scar and wanted Dr. Fine to look at it. He looked at it and said that it was not the shingles and he didn't know what it could've been since I did not see a dermatiolgist at the time of the breakout. He seemed very unconcerned about my problem and I am not happy with him.
Patient | April 1, 2016

Can't say enough good about Dr. Fine- He's wonderful.
Patient | March 10, 2016

Highly recommend Dr. Fine.
Patient | February 15, 2016

The issue is getting an app't.
Patient | February 1, 2016

Dr. Fine is the best doctor I've ever encountered. He is very caring and takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns. He is exceptionally knowledgeable in regard to my condition and is always reassuring. I just can't say enough good things about
