Absolutely excellent! I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

July 29, 2015

very impressed with UMPC on my first initial visit. I was early for my app. and your staff took me in and completed all the necessary forms before hand.

I will be 75 years old in August with out the excellent care provided by Dr Albert Lin I would have not reached that birthday. He a very caring and wonderful person my wife and I own him my life,

July 15, 2015

I was impressed with comfortability of the whole process with me being referred to a new doctor. Dr. Lin and his intern made me feel important, listened to my concerns and explained things very thoroughly. I am most impressed at this time.

PHyllicia George is Dr. Lin's PA and she has been an excellent. Since I am an UPMC employee, I have emailed her with questions instead of calling the office and she always responded quickly to any of my concerns. She is also very caring when she sees you prior to Dr. Lin coming in to see you. I think both Dr. Lin and Phyllicia are excellent providers. I also think that Dr. Lin is very lucky to have such an excellent and caring PA to work with him.

Dr. Lin has always treated me with the greatest respect and professionalism. He is the best!

July 01, 2015

From the moment Dr Lin walked into the exam room we had a very positive impression of him--- he entered with a big smile, he was fastidiously dressed (which demonstrated good preparation and organization skill as well as attention to detail---ie. creating a good first impression). His assessment of my problem & it's' solution just reinforced our already good opinion of him. Subsequent visits which focused on my shoulder surgery and follow-up care were always handle with the highest level of professionalism----UPMC is fortunate to have him!!!!!!

June 29, 2015

The medical care by Dr. Lin and his staff exceeded my expectation. I am very pleased with the medical treatment I received in UPMC in general.

June 29, 2015

Dr. Lin and staff provided me with COMPLETE confidence, information about my condition and paths to follow for now and the future.

June 24, 2015

This caregiver is brilliant and generous and kind and very very knowledgeable I would recommend him to the world!
