He looked at his phone the whole time during my first visit. He kept mentioning he didn’t have much time. For my second visit, which was to be by phone to review my new scans, no one ever cancelled my appointment, told me he was running behind and that I should stay by my phone (from 10:45AM), then never called me nor answered their phone. I cannot imagine a less professional office or doctor. Unfortunately, my only experiences with them have been negative.

Dr. Lin is one if the finest medical professional that I have come come across. He never rushes and takes his time when meeting with you. He also takes his time to explain everything as well as answer all questions until you are absolutely clear with the answer. Not only is this my experience, but I have observed his being this way with others while I am waiting in his office.

Dr. Lin saved my life. Successfully embolization a large, irregularly-shaped intercranial aneurysm and placed a complex stent at the base of the aneurysm to ensure that flow would bypass the aneurysm. His followup and explanations were thorough and easy to understand. Highly recommend Dr. Lin if you are in need of a superb neurosurgeon.
