What People Say About Dr. James Linder, MD

Two years ago another Doctor made a “no surgical facial filler” under my eyes. He used my own body fat, and the results (three moths later) was a bag fat under my eyes. I was looking tired all the time. Two moths ago I decided schedule an appointment with Dr. Linder, and I’m so glad to decided make my blepharoplasty with him. As always thankful to Dr.Linder for his passion in what he does, for his commitment to working so tirelessly to help make dreams come true. CK.

Dr Linder did tear through injections and my eyes look worse than before. His response was “it doesn’t look bad”. He overfilled with filler under right eye and suggested that I put heat on it to break it down or pay more to inject something to break it down. So upset!!

Dr. Lender is very thorough I feel confident with his diagnoses & care. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Always a warm smile no matter how busy. Thank you for your personal care.

seeing my dermatologist that was uneasy about removing a cyst so close to my eye. He recommended Dr. Linder. I just popped in and they squeezed me in and removed it. It was much more extensive than I thought. Dr. Linder was so nice..his staff was great!! I'm so happy that it's gone and I will definitely go to him for any eye issues. They prepared me for this and that..and when I left, it was amazing!! I just was going in to see if they could do it and an hour later it was gone!!

I waited far too long (over an hour) to be seen by the doctor, then he hurriedly performed a procedure and threw some eye drops at me to "see if that makes a difference" with instructions to "come back in a month". Not the solutions I was looking for. He seemed very preoccupied and didn't ask questions or seem interested at all in my situation. Ran out the door as quickly as he came in.

Dr. Linder has created tear ducts in both of my eyes. Explains everything. And one actually stopped up again over a year later. He created a new one and had to scrape more bone and scar tissue. I still had very little bruising and swelling Keeping ice on it. Dr. Linder is a very nice doctor, easy to talk to. He calls back himself to check on you and doesnt mind answering questions. I have shown many people where he had incisions on my nose and they all say u can't see them. He is the best!
