Ratings for Dr. Sandra R. Stine
I have known Dr. Stine since she was a resident at ORMC. I became her patient when she started private practice. I have followed her as she searched for the practice that gave her the balance in her life she sought. There is no finer, kinder, smarter, more compassionate physician anywhere. As an RN of 30 years experience, I can tell you that there is no better doctor than Sandra. Ignore those who whinge and whine about little things, or office issues. Listen to those who know her, have worked with her, and who has provided care for me. There is no one better than Dr. Stine.
Dr. Stine is one of the most comprehensive and compassionate doctors I've ever been to. I have been seeing her for over ten years and has done everything to figure out my rare diagnosis. She does run behind, but like most people said, the time she spends with you, makes up for it. I absolutely love her. I do miss her old staff.
Dr. Stine is from the old school of "pharmacology rules all." Any issue is met with a drug. There is absolutely no discussion of nutrition as a lifestyle change. She had no answers to my desire to lose 30 pounds. Dr. Stine's staff is downright hostile over the phone, and this has been verified by three calls (for very simple things like medical records) in two years. That's if they'll answer the phone at all, which is rarely. You have to leave a message, and they've never called me back--ever. If you do want your medical records, you have to show up in person, and pay $1.00 per page. There are no online options for medical records, even though every detail of your visits are recorded on laptop. Highly disappointing experience overall. Don't just read positive or negative reviews. Give it a try: call Dr. Stine's office. See if they answer the phone. If they do, don't identify yourself; just ask to have your medical records sent to you. Then enjoy the curt, hostile tone.
Dr. Stine is just divine. She is caring and compassionate, and connects with you on a personal level that makes you feel like someone is really looking out for your best interest. Whether it be an acute, or a chronic issue, she has always worked with me until we find every solution. The office she is at is the WORST with appointments and billing, but I will stick it out because I can't imagine finding a better primary care physician than Dr. Stine.
Dr. Stine often runs a little late, but that is because she is giving you her undivided attention, so maybe the schedule slides a little. She does not just breeze in and gone in 3 minutes. She takes her time and you never feel rushed with her. She obviously cares about her pateients. Absolutely recommend her. Been going to her at least 10 years.
First, she is the most compassionate dr I have ever seen. She takes her time and makes sure you are mentally and physically ok. Also, I have pain issue and my pain management doctor was being rediculus, she was able to help me out and give me time to get a new pain management dr.
