Dr. Lin is very professional and decisive. While this is not a complaint, I felt that the doctor was mystified by my condition and maybe was a little dismissive.

August 11, 2016

Wait time to see provider was too long -- first spending time with associate and then the doctor - arrived in the waiting area at 8:05 for 8:30 appt. after x rays, preconsult with associate and consult with doctor left the office at approximately 10:40 -- this was a long time to have a 10 to 15 minute consult with the Dr. I booked appointment to see -- then additional time to get paperwork for additional testing

Dr Lin and his staff excel in all aspects. I had shoulder replacement and I could not have asked for a better team to see this through. I would highly recommend this doctor and staff to family and friends.

the care I received was excellent

July 13, 2016

I believe that Dr. Lin did an excellent job with my shoulder surgery. Judging by what acquaintances have told me about their experiences with this type of surgery, I seem to be recuperating very well by comparison.
