    Dr. Lin fixed my right shoulder two years ago and he did a Stellar job! I had acromian impingement, slap tear and partial thickness tear of rotator cuff and labram tear. Now my left shoulder has the same problem and I went right back to him. I am confident that he and his staff will give me the same great care and service I had 2 years ago. I am grateful that they are a great resource close to where I live.

    Friendly staff. Dr. Lin answered all my questions and explained clearly. I did not feel rushed during my visits, even though the appointment times did not take long at all. Easy to make appointments in the Monroe office.

    Dr. Lin helped me with a severe case of shoulder tendentious. We explored a couple of different options. I appreciated that he was able to guide me to improve my range of motion and eventually recover using physical therapy, and avoid surgery.

    Dr. Lin completed surgery on my right shoulder. He was very informative throughout the consultation process outlining my options (which included non-surgical remedies) to ensure I understood the pros and cons. He was patient with answering all my questions and helped me feel comfortable making the decision that was best for my lifestyle.
