This is one of the worst doctors I have ever came in contact with! James Lin was so insensitive he rushed through my cystoscopy exam and didn't even go over my results. His staff who assisted him with my exam was also rude and unprofessional, blond woman who didn't wear any medical clothing while assisting him with inserting the device, I felt so uncomfortable. He was very mean and don't care about his patients. He lies in his notes that he spends time with patients but trust me this is far from the truth! James Lin cannot be trusted with your health!

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!

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.
