What People Say About Dr. Emerald Lin, MD
Reply
Dr. Lin is absolutely the best doctor who has treated me in my long military career. As a Lt Col stationed in the Pentagon, the work is very intense. While being super competitive, I had 2 concussions. After the first concussion, I did not want to listen to Dr. Lin or receive her help because I was extremely stubborn. She continued to try to help me while dealing with my stubborn ways. The following year, I had another concussion. This time I listened to her. She changed my life.
