Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Lin performed my cardiac ablation, which cured my troublesome atrial fibrillation. He is a true expert in electrophysiology, extremely conscientious, and also a physician who listens to his patients and shows compassion. Thank goodness there are people like him who dedicate their lives to improving the lives of others.

Dr. Lin is cordial and takes the time to explain medical procedures and heart issues with you in person. However if a problem arises between office visits he is impossible to reach. All communication takes place through his nursing staff. Appointments are difficult to schedule even when your medical condition worsens.
