Dr Fine is very professional, respectful ,kind thoughtful while examining and explaining thoroughly in a way that the patient understands their conditions. He explains what has/ or can be done with their situation to correct or alleviate the suffering. He is Concerned with the patient getting better. I remember the first time I saw him with a detached retina, he saw the urgency in correcting the situation. He did not have an opening and knowing how urgent I needed to be attended he gave my case to an associate he asked his associate who had an opening to see me. When my insurance was delaying the approval of the case, he reminded about the urgency as I was about to lose my eye. The surgery was successful and I give thanks to God who used Dr Fine in correcting the situation and saved my eye. I am grateful to Dr Fine and the NJ Retina group for the work they are doing for humanity.. I have only one good eye which I was about to lose when I walked in to 10 Plum Street NJ Retina office. The office procedure done in the office that evening did not work. The next visit is when I met Dr Fine who was very kind to me he stretched his hand and shook my hand. He examined my eye and explained what was happening and what was to be done urgently in order to save my eye. Dr Fine encouraged me when I asked what were the chances of success. He told me that the chances of success was 90something I was not getting it. That was seven years ago. I saw him one week, two weeks, three weeks, every month, three months, six months and now I see him every year. Dr Fine moved from Plum Street office and I followed him to Edison James Street office.. I feel he knows my case and understands my fears. There is still something else to be done in the eye but I follow his advice that as long as I have the 2020 vision we will hold off the procedure. May the lord bless Dr Fine and continue to increase him in knowledge , wisdom and intelligence in the work he is doing saving peoples sight.

I have been under the care of Dr. Fine for five years. He attentively listens to my concerns and explains medical conditions in simple terms, which I greatly appreciate. His thoroughness is evident as he takes the time to conduct comprehensive examinations and maintains detailed notes. Dr. Fine's outstanding bedside manner has been a consistent aspect of my experience with him.

Dr. Fine and his staff provided a welcome experience. My questions were answered professionally and completely. Obviously, any potential surgical procedure on the eye is concerning. I felt comfortable with the recommendations coming out of this visit.

Dr Fine’s surgical skill and his professionalism are second to none. His entire staff at three offices I have visited are top notch as well. I had successful macular hole surgery and regained 95% of my vision in an eye that could not see much. Than you to this wonderful doctor who explained every step of the surgery and recovery/ follow up.

I had a very good checkup both with the nurses as well as with Dr. Fine.

Without a doubt, if it wasn’t for Dr. Fine, I would still be seeing as if I were wearing Coke bottles. His skill, patience, and perseverance surgically repaired my macular pucker. As a result, I can see well enough to drive after three years of not doing so.

He was a great find! He took his time and never rushed us. We had recently moved from north Jersey where we used retina associates and had seen Dr. Kim years ago. Dr. Fine was wonderful and answered all of our questions. He was able to compare my retinal photos from years ago to the ones we got yesterday.We will see him again.

There was a long wait in the office due to some emergencies, but everyone was so apologetic. Dr. Fine is always courteous, professional, and good at explaining in layman terms. I am glad I found him. He is a treasure. He also referred me to an amazing doctor for my cataract surgery, Dr. Reynolds, who is also wonderful.

Dr. Fine is the best Retina doctor that you can possibly find in NJ/NY area. He did miracle surgery 6 years ago that restored 80% of my vision after the ERM removal. I wish him well and hope to see him again in two years!
