none excellent physician

September 11, 2019

Dr. Lin has always shown genuine concern and understanding with my issue(s). I feel fortunate to have chosen him to treat/repair my shoulder.

September 04, 2019

In the past year, Dr Lin has repaired both my right and left shoulders due to torn rotator cuff issues. I have had excellent surgical results. He and his PA, Jessica were professional, approachable, answered all my questions throughout. Dr Lin sat with my husband post op and explained what was done during surgery. I recommend him and have already to others. Someone that I recommended him to also had an excellent experience.

Really was impressed by Dr Lin. i was only there for a second opinion, but he treated me like a long time patient. Staff were wonderful as well.
