Patient Comments (3)
in Wilmington, DE |
Dr. Lin has been my ophthalmologist for a few years. She is very knowledgeable. Today, I visited her for a check up and mentioned that I have seen 3 ENT doctors and they could not find anything wrong with my sudden hearing loss on my left ear. She was kind enough to hear me out and gave me some very useful suggestions to help me along. Dr. Lin is very patient and I feel she in no rush to get me out to see other patients. I would definitely recommend her to my friends. I give her more than 5 star

I have been under Dr. Lin's care for a few years. I have complete confidence in her skills and her level of care. She diagnosed my glaucoma when two other previous doctors missed. She is very thorough and spend a lot of time with me. She clearly explains any medical information I need and I never feel rushed. She does preventive care for my eyes and her suggestions even help my family doctor diagnosed my vitamin deficiency.

Dr. Lin is THE BEST eye Doctor I have ever seen. She is very thorough, explaining the etiology of my condition and answering all of my questions. She was not in a hurry to leave me and go to the next patient but was genuinely in the moment in the exam room with me. I would recommend her to anyone but I chose her specifically for her expertise with auto immune disease.
