Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lin "I am passionate about putting the patient first.  Therefore, I chose to open a Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice.  DPC practices are member-supported via monthly dues.  With your membership in the practice, you receive unlimited doctor appointments with no further copays; these include physicals, acute/urgent care, chronic disease management, well woman care, well child visits, preoperative consultations, and much more!  We also offer home visits for a small additional fee.  At Family Matters, you will have no trouble scheduling appointments quickly and easily, little to no wait time in the waiting room, and 30-60 minute appointments times tailored to your needs.  You will have direct access to your doctor via face-to-face appointments, video chats, emails, cell phone or texting.  We are able to dispense medications right from the office at  deep discounts.  We have partnered with Quest labs to provide lab testing also at significantly lower rates.  Visit our website to learn more!"

Dr. Lin is a very caring, very thorough physician...She has moved to a practice that is too far from where I live to continue with her being my doctor, but I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new physician.

Dr Lin is my doctor and I think she's really great. She listens to my concerns and gives great medical advice. Very easy to talk to. I've never had an issue with my medications. I've always had the staff contact me in a timely manner and Teresa is awesome. I highly recommend her.

On six occasions I have had my pharmacies (two of them) have to contact her multiple times to refill prescriptions where she nor her staff follow through..

Dear James M., Believe me, I share your frustrations! These are some of the common hassles that we find in the traditional "fee for service" model of medicine. Fortunately, I am no longer affiliated with the practice that you mention in your review. In the world of Direct Primary Care, refills are taken care of in our office at deep discounts (please see our website for examples). In addition, I will have no staff and therefore will be taking care of all refills personally. Best wishes.
