Patient Comments (6)
in Cave Creek |
Dr. Lin was friendly, kind and very thorough. She performed minor surgery to remove basal cell cancer, and took a tremendous amount of time making sure I understood what was going on, and also to make sure the stitches left the smallest scar possible.
in Thousand Oaks, CA |
Dr. Lin performed Mohs surgery on my face 12 years ago. She was so adept that she left no scar at all. She then moved from California to Scottsdale, Arizona. I had two mohs surgeries since by other doctors. They left considerable scars. When they found two more areas that required mohs I drove eight hours in each direction to have Dr. Lin do the surgery. Once again she came through with flying colors. The scaring is minimal. She is a true master of the craft and I highly recommend her.
in Carefree, Az |
Was not happy with my exam with Dr. Lin. She spent a total of 35 seconds during my exam, seemed like she was distracted. Would not recommend.
in Avondale, AZ |
She is awful. Said area of concern on my upper lip was just dry skin. Froze the lesion and gave me a prescription for a steroid cream. When the lesion came back after 1 month, and started to bleed I went elsewhere. I was diagnosed w/ skin cancer, underwent a MOHs procedure and subsequent reconstruction of my upper lip with a plastic surgeon. When I called to complain about misdiagnosing my skin cancer, I was informed that I must have developed skin cancer in that 1 month after I saw her.
Scottsdale, AZ |
This is the least thorough mole check I have ever had in 30 years. Dr Lin was running late by one hour (yes that's right) and hurriedly did a quick body check for moles. Had me leave on my undergarments and as a result, missed checking over 5 moles. Will either have to go back or see someone else. Would not recommend. Only when I inquired about Juviderm did I seem to really get her attention.
Dr Lin is very patient, and I believe recommends the best treatments.
