I have been seeing dr Lin for over 20 years. He has done operations on me with great success. He manages my conditions with great care and skill. I have a blind son. I know eye care. If you have dr Lin as your eye specialist you should thank your lucky stars. There is no one better as far as I am concerned and I lived in NYC for 25 years , was a medical center consultant . And I knew many top eye specialist. Again if you have an eye issue? beg to see dr Lin and his associates.
