I recently was referred to Dr. Lin for a complicated thyroidectomy. He is a detailed and brilliant physician and a masterful surgeon. He also is very caring and kind. I would give him and his office an excellent rating and would feel very comfortable referring him to anyone in need of his expertise.

I've been suffering very severe sleep apnea for at least 10 years . After going to several doctors and getting worse. I started blacking out , sleep walking ,and waking up at least 30 times a night. Sleep study showed that I had 57 events a hour of loss of breath and oxygen dropped as low as 67% .Then I was introduced to Dr. Lin. let me just say he really saved my life with a new sleep apnea surgery that no other Dr. would do. He is the best and I'll just say I feel like he is a blessing to me.

After visiting a few doctors who misdiagnosed, dr Lin immediately identified my fathers tonsil cancer and treated immediately. He is an excellent surgeon, doctor ans healer. I cannot say enough great thing things about dr Lin. Always kind and caring, close attention to detail and a brilliant mind. I could not imagine our cancer journey with anyone else in charge.
