in Yorba Linda, CA |
Dr. Lin performed two surgeries on my back in January and June 2017 - not only was his professionalism and care superb, but the entire office staff went above and beyond to get the attention and assistance I needed. I would highly recommend Dr. Lin and his office without any reservation.
in Brea, CA |
Dr. Lin has treated me for spinal issues in my tech, mid back, and lower back (on different occasions) over the past 3-4 years. In each case, he quickly and accurately identified the source of the problem, and then prescribed a treatment to fix each issue. I like that you don't have to wait long for an appointment in his office, and he takes the time to sit down and talk about your condition.

Dr. Lin has been my orthopedic specialist for almost five years. I recently underwent back surgery for severe sciatic pain. I have already recommended him to a few other people who also suffer from similar issues. I love him and his staff. What a blessing they have been to me personally!!
in Fullerton, Ca. |
My surgery experience wth the spinal fusion and laminectomy, etc. was 100% better than anticipated. I have had complete relief of pain in my back even now at 13 + mo. postop. Dr. Lin's professional manner and explanation of the procedures to be performed helped me make the right decision. At 82, I was hesitant to have major surgery, but it was the right decision.
in Irvine, CA |
I had spinal fusion in late 2016. I have had no back pain since the surgery (over a year ago). I can run and ski without pain.
in La Verne, CA |
I've had back issues for many years. Dr. Lin recommend a solution to which I'm in the middle of the healing process. As of now I'm very satisfied of how everything is turning out. I'd highly recommend Dr. Lin and his office to anyone and everyone I come across.
Fullerton, CA |
I came to Dr. Lin so I could find a real answer to my back and leg pain. I left feeling very disappointed. Spent like maybe 5 minutes with me and not compassionate at all. Going to Physical Therapy, hoping for some pain relief...
