Patient Comments (2)
in Herndon, VA |
Dr. Lin is a straight talking professional. He was able to explain to me in lay man terms, the serious situation that I was in, but with hope in sight. I was transferred from another hospital that couldn't help me any further and I spent the next 17 days under Dr. Lin's care. After surgery , follow up visits and following his directions, a year later I am almost back to normal. I have come across several other individuals similar to me and they haven't progressed as well.
