The visit was fine but the process overall is long. I had to see my primary doctor to get referral to see Dr Lin just so he could give me a script for PT. This whole process has taken a month. I can’t help feel that this whole process was a waste of time. I needed a sports medicine doctor.

Dr. Lin saw me for my diabetic neuropathy syndrome (numbness in the tips of my fingers). He was easily available on short notice, and scheduled me for an MRI exam, to see if I may have a pinched nerve to cause the numbness. This cause was ruled out. Of course, Dr. Lin is a physician and not a magician, and diabetic neuropathy is an irreversible condition, so I am learning to live with it. SKL.
