He was very professional and answered my long list of questions. He is working well with my back surgeon who also is with rush orthopedics. Praying this is the answer to my issue stemming from a poor spine surgery preformed by Hinsdale Orthopedics. Hopefully this foot drop can be fixed and no further injury will occur.

I went to see Dr. Lin because I could no longer handle pain that bunions and hammer toes were causing on both of my feet. I had surgery on my right foot in September, 2019 and could not believe how rapidly it changed the quality of my life. I believe Dr. Lin is an excellent doctor and, therefore, in June, 2020 had surgery on my left foot.

I recently saw Dr. Lin for a chronic ankle problem. His diagnosis was quick and confident, and he took time to explain my injury to me clearly. He laid out my options for treatment, and helped me understand the pros and cons with each. I feel comfortable and confident heading in to surgery with him as my doctor.

We met Dr Lin several years ago when our daughter needed a specialized foot doctor for a soccer injury . We found our trust and respect for Dr Lin over that time . I needed some foot surgery and there is no one else I would consider . He is smart, kind, confident (without arrogance ) and a gentle spirit .

I've been seeing Doctor Lin for several years now. I wish there was more he could do for my left foot. But he's done and has advised me of my options.

The wait to see Dr. Lin was longer than I had hoped, but the actual visit was excellent. He is thorough, experienced, and listens carefully. This is a first impression, but extremely positive. I trust him to perform a needed surgery

After a bad surgery, my foot was not looking normal. I developed a hammertoe, two toes was reside up and the little toe was going under. He fix it and now it looks like a normal foot, I feel he almost did a plastic surgery. I’m happy with the results and I strongly recommend him!!!
