I have been a patient of Dr. Lin’s for over 3 years. Dr. Lin is well informed and up to date on areas of dermatology from acne, skin cancer and cosmetic procedure. I had the Renuvion Facial procedure in 2020. I am very happy with the results and told I look 20 years younger. I have a history of skin melanoma and Dr. Lin takes very precaution necessary when I visit, checking and over checking any spots that may appear suspicious. Great Doctor.

I visited once referred by two other doctors that are supposed to do the same thing he's done or is supposed to do. Getting a hold of anybody at this office is worse than the DWP. Who knows if they even really do what they say they're doing I don't know. After my consultation I got the old well we'll wait and hear back from your insurance company before we make an appointment. Well I called my insurance company and I'm good to go I pay every month I've been paying for the past year for insurance that I cannot take advantage of it this office apparently. I want to know why what do these people do?

I had an excision done on my scar that was located on my forehead. I saw Dr. Lin and he was very careful, kind, and friendly to me. The procedure only took 30 minutes and the scar healed perfectly. Very happy with the results.

I've continuously had such a great experience with this office. I came in about a year ago to treat my rosacea and from the first appointment I felt so listened to and cared for. Dr Lin was amazing in creating a treatment plan for me that we changed and updated along the way to help me achieve my skin care goals. The office staff has always been so sweet and attentive. They always go out of their way to make sure I am taken care of, that my medications will be affordable, and that all the boxes are checked. I'm so happy with my treatment so far, can't wait to do more cosmetic treatments now that my rosacea has cleared up!

Dr.Lin was amazing, I went to him due to my actinic keratosis that I’ve been struggling with for years. He was so wonderful and incredible at providing me with the best care. I highly recommend going to dr.Lin for any of your dermatology needs.

As a teenager, I’m experiencing an escalation in oil production and hormonal acne. Being self conscious, I looked towards skincare products but unfortunately many irritated my skin. Thankfully though a family friend recommended Dr. Lin. When I started Dr. Lin’s products, particularly the Acne foaming facial wash and Acne corrector, I immediately saw results in my skin. My skin not only became clearer but it also developed a smoother skin texture. I did not experience any irritation, peeling or even redness. I definitely recommend Dr.Lin. I’m definitely using their products for long-term.

I have been seeing Dr. Lin for more than 18 years. His treatment and recommendations have been a dream come true for my skin. His staff is extremely friendly and understanding. Due to covid-19 is quite a long wait so plan accordingly but it's worth the wait.
