Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Lin has great compassion, and in my opinion Dr Lin is brilliant and proficient in his field. Four of my relatives have been treated by him, and I have accompanied them most of the time. I highly recommend this very respectable physician.

Dr Lin and his staff are part excellent. I have never had a doctor listen and care. When I came back from California my family doctor, my dr of 37 yrs, because of my condition told dismissed me! I can’t remember how many characters I called that turned me down as a patient when I’ve needed a doctor the most! Dr. Lee and saved my life! His staff is greatly responsive to their patients I love them!

He handles my grandmother's dementia with dignity and respect. He knows his stuff. Any time there is an issue, we know grandma will be sent somewhere that has full communication with Dr. Lin. His nurse always follows up with us on the phone after tests and blood work. They genuinely care about grandma's health. We are so happy to have stumbled upon Dr. Lin.

Usually puts you with a Nurse Practioner instead of himself. Orders lots of tests but does NOT follow through on results.
