Dr. Lin is amazing. He has always interacted with me (instead of just talking "at" me), answered a myriad of questions, and explained things to me in ways which are easy to understand. I truly mean it when I say I have been blessed to work with Dr. Lin. He values and listens to my input - truly a rarity in the medical professions.

March 09, 2017

I have a lot of respect for Dr. Albert Lin. He is an excellent surgeon and has the most respect for his patients and staff. He took care of my husband during and after a rotator cuff tear/ surgery several years ago. He was thorough and sympathetic during my recent office visit with him concerning my shoulder pain. I also want to mention the excellent bedside manner of his fellow, Jeremy that examined me before Dr. Lin.

Doctor Albert Linn is the most wonderful man alive. He is always friendly and I can tell he really cares about my condition. His surgical skills are insurmountable. If it wasn't for him, I would not have use of my shoulders. He is the person people should strive to be like.

March 09, 2017

Dr Lin has always taken his time and answered all of my questions. I never feel rushed when I see him.

March 01, 2017

Dr. Linn has the best bedside manner of any doctor/surgeon I have dealt with. He takes the time to explain everything and answers any questions I or my wife may have. I also love that he is very honest with regards to my care.

March 01, 2017

Care was administered in a professional manner.

Some of the questions asked do not apply. However, if they did I am sure my answer would be the same - excellent.

February 16, 2017

Dr. Lin is great. He inspires confidence. He operated on my shoulder, gave the right direction to my physical therapy team, assessed my progress at each visit, and now I am back at CrossFit!
