Dr. Lin is an excellent surgeon. He is very knowledgeable and explains things so that the patient can easily understand them. He is an excellent surgeon. His rehabilitation protocol was very clear and he was more than willing to answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I had heard horror stories with regards to therapy after sholder surgery , but i guess when you have such a taleneted surgeon as Dr. Lin you recover with ease. I could be no more satisfied with the procedure or the outcome. I beleive that I hit the jackpot in choosing Dr.Lin. UPMC should be proud to have him as a staff member.
