in Powder Springs, GA |
I just had Back surgery using Dr Lin and I could not have had a better experience in my life. He is truly about the customer experience and really knows his line of work. He saw things that others did not and was all about making me te patient comfortable, informed, and happy. If I thought I needed something he would understand and get it for me. His staff was great as well. I highly recommend his services if you need back surgery.
