    Dr James Lin, Sandra, P.A., and medical team (Jennifer, Alex, Shannon) are the best! -thank you..James
    in Thousand Oaks, CA |
    Found the staff to be unconpassionate and rude. Excessive wait times. Doctor talked fast and did not listen well, the arrogant attitude didn't help. With so many choices out there-much better options available!
