In Sept, I was diagnosed with diverticulitis, that is when I met Dr. Lin. The next 6 months everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Dr. Lin was always there for me, smiling, optimistic, coming into my hospital room everyday reassuring me that I would get through this. He stayed with me during a procedure that I would not have made it through, if it weren't for him holding my hand. I have never met such a compassionate Dr. He was a blessing & I thank him with all my heart. He is the Best!

I met Dr. Lin for the first time when I was in the hospital in July diagnosed with acute diverticulitis. He is a kind and compassionate surgeon who really cares about his patients. He listens and explains everything in detail. He continued to follow my case from that day to the time when surgery became necessary in September resulting in a colostomy. I was impressed that he visited me everyday that I was in the hospital. After waiting 5 months I was able to have the reversal done.

I was referred to Dr.Lin for my colon.My experience with office visits as well as my surgeries were the most comfortable I've felt in years with a surgeon. He was a very ethical and professional kind surgeon and made sure I was comfortable after my surgery and always spoke with a smile.

Dr. Lin is the nicest, most professional doctor. He is so kind, compassionate, direct, and informative. My father was referred to him for a tumor in his colon; Dr. Lin performed a procedure (sigmoidoscopy) to determine the best course of treatment. He takes a lot of time to understand his patients, and speaks very kindly and forthrightly, which we really appreciated. He's what a doctor should be. His assistants are great too.
