WE HAVE BEEN GOING TO DR LIN FOR MANY YEARS. SHE HAS DEALT WITH SOME COMPLEX ISSUES. SHE HAS THE HANDS OF A PLASTIC SURGEON, IS QUICK AND SMOOTH, CATCHING EVERYTHING. I HAVE LIVED ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND OVERSEAS FOR WHILE. FACT IS THAT I HAVE NEVER MET A DERMATOLOGIST HER EQUAL. SUPERB IN EVERY ASPECT. MY WIFE AND I BOTH SEE HER AND AGREE ON HER EXCELLENCE AND SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE IN HER FIELD

Dr. Lin performed 4 mohs on me and she was great. Excellent patient manners. None of the 4 surgeries left any scars. After she finished my first surgery, I requested her for the additional surgeries.

I would not recommend this provider to anyone seeking any type of dermatology care. She has no bed side manner, is rude and acts like you are taking up her time in an appointment and does not like to answer any questions. She will be happy to do procedures on you to charge to your insurance and you will have to force her to discuss the procedure and need for it. The scars from my procedure were so painful, I sought care from another provider who had to fix her mistakes. Do not see Dr. Lin.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
