Dr. Lin is a dedicated professional who provides outstanding, state of the art patient care. He provides comprehensive medical care in addition to spending time with his patients and explains things in terms that are easy to understand. He’s medical assistant Danielle, is outstanding too in that she also provides patient support and necessary resources as needed. Together, they go above and beyond what one would expect. I highly recommend this physician and his team.

Was able to see dr quickly. Staff was friendly. Doctor was nice. Doctor didn’t ask for an update in my medications without me providing the information first. Seems like the protocol fo me this office is always an at home sleep apnea test, which takes 4-6 weeks to even do. Even when they don’t think you have sleep apnea. So I left with little new information

This doctor will order up all sorts of unnecessary tests and present you with a bogus diagnosis. And for this, he will send huge bills ($600 for a 10-minute visit). I would not recommend this doctor for anything and feel he should be investigated.

Went to Doctor Lin for sleep problems 4 months ago diagnosed with sleep apnea, prescribed a breathing machine the hone study was a little machine that I was given 30 seconds of instruction... Dr Lin was paid 900!!!! For me to take home the machine and he looked over the results.. it seems that isn’t enough, they excpect me to pay an additional 71!!! Out of my pocket for “home instruction???” Needless to say I said I would pay the other fees but enough is enough!!! When do we STOP

I have been a patient for about 10 years. He was able to diagnose my problem. I have been feeling fantastic since I use my CPAP. I never knew that I have sleep apnea. I never knew what it felt like to have a great night sleep
