The good doctor thinks he has transcended being a mere doctor and is now some kind of sage or something. He would be pretty good if he would just be quiet and do his job and answer the patient’s questions. He simply could not give a straight “yes” or “no” as to whether I had hemorrhoids or not. He gave some ineffectual muscle relaxer and sent me to a urologist! The urologist found the hemorrhoid, and discovered that I had a “distended colon” (a GI issue if there ever was one!!). AVOID!!!!

Unfortunately I did not get to see Dr Linn. His front office staff totally lacks bedside manor and the ability to handle conflict and not judge. I walked out. They were condescending, and judgmental. It went down hill fast when I stuck up for myself. They should have backed down but continued to digress. Save your energy and see another one of the many Gastro DRs unless Dr Linn retrains his staff. If they or he would have called me and apologized, I would not have written this review.

It went down hill fast when I stuck up for myself. hey lied about receiving my meds list prior to my appt, then the nurse totally spoke in a demeaning manor to me that I could not remember all the names of my meds and dosages.

Dr Linn is highly competent, thorough, attentive, instills trust and confidence in his work. He provides thoughtful careful explanations and education. He is also really witty and funny - you almost want to go to the doctor if it is Dr. Linn. The only possible improvement would be ease in making the actual appointment. But, I trust and like Dr. Linn so very much that i assume there is a good reason for his staffing decisions.
