Dr. James Lin is a great Urologist! His kind manner made me feel at ease at a very hard time. He was easy to talk with and patient. He gave me just the right information and path forward while letting me feel he was going to be there all the way. Thank goodness for Dr. Lin!
in Canton, MA |
No bedside manner. Uncaring. Both he and staff abrupt and unhelpful. Worst experience EVER. Fortunately, this was referral by regular urologist. Had surgery but did not return after one follow-up and was referred to other doc by primary.
