I have known dr.lin for over 30 yrs& have received excellentcare thr out this period my daughter who was a icu-ccu nurse at j muir hospital referred me to dr lin
in Concord, CA |
I went to Dr. Lin with severe unusual migraines which at first seemed like seizures. She got me into the UCSF epilepsy unit where the migraines confirmed. Dr. Lin takes a lot of time with me, answers all my questions and is very knowledgeable in her field. Additionally, I feel Dr. Lin considers the whole person, not just the current issue. I appreciate her teaching spirit and have thought more than once that she should also be a college professor. I would highly recommend Dr. Lin to others.
