Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

If you’re old enough to remember the family doctor who made house calls, knew your medical history without having to stare at a computer screen, personally answered the phone and didn’t limit an office visit to the time allotted by an insurance company, you’ll love Dr. Lin. She was my biggest cheerleader following a serious illness several years ago and never stopped searching for solutions to all the subsequent health issues that arose. As a direct primary care physician, she doesn’t have to answer to insurance companies or health systems. The standard of care is far superior to what the majority of Americans now receive.

We are new to Dr Lin's practice and we could not be happier. Her new Direct Primary Care type of practice leads to a much better dr/patient interaction.

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.. I've told her this is a problem more than once and talked to staff multiple times but nothing changes. The manager blamed me and lied saying another nurse tried to contact me the day before {but the nurse was calling me on the other line while I was talking to the manager). Lies, incompetence and irresponsible. Her system is broken. Sorry

I was looking for a new doctor after mine had retired, and I chose Dr. Lin. So happy with my decision. She took a great deal of time with me and she was so easy to talk to about my health. She was very professional and treated me in a caring manner. Even after one visit, I would definitely recommend her.

I LOVE Dr. Lin. She's one of the few docs I've seen that cares about YOU! She has personally gone above and beyond to personally contact other doctors and surgeons when an issue I had needed a specialist. She always takes the time to speak to you about ANY questions you have, not just the ailment you are there for. I have never had to wait very long for her either. She really is fantastic, listens and is a team member with you when it comes to your health!
