Dr Lins is delightful
Dr Lins gave me a cortisone shot in my right thumb for my trigger finger. Now I can bend my thumb and the pain is much better.

Excellent Doctor
I have been seeing Dr. Lins since 2019. He has been amazing along with his staff. Every visit is beyond my expectations. He always takes the time during each visit to explain in depth what is going on, fix and potential outcome. I always recommend Dr. Lins!

He changed my quality of life
I started seeing Dr. Lins 2 years ago for neck pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. Given my age at the time (44 yo), we did not want to jump into surgery. After almost 2 years of injections in my neck and wrist, Dr. Lins asked that I consider surgery given that my symptoms were still persisting. As a mother of 4, and just an overall busy life, I was terrified to have surgery, but trusted Dr. Lins and knew it was time. I'm only 4 weeks post op and I will say this was 100% the BEST decision I made. Dr. Lins did an amazing job on my surgery, and it is healing phenomenally. My office visits have all been great as well. Although he is very busy (and yes, I have had to wait for a long time now and then), he takes the time to listen and answer all of your questions. For me, this surgery was LIFE CHANGING, and I would recommend Dr. Lins to anyone looking for a physician in his field.

Waited almost 2 hours to see the doctor. Then he said he couldn't give me a steroid shot for my aching thumb because I had a blister. Dr. Lins was patient and kind. The staff was kind as well. Will not return. I don't want to sit in a waiting room for a long period of time.

My initial visit to Dr. Lins’ office was for a thumb injury acquired in a game of tennis. (they say tennis is not a violent sport). Dr. Lins diagnosed me with a hairline fracture and recommended appropriate care & follow up. Dr. Lins was professional, attentive and forthcoming. His staff was also warm and welcoming. I absolutely would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Lins to family & friends.

My experience with Dr. Lins was incredible. I first came to Dr. Lins in the end of June with excruciating pain in my leg. He sent me for tests immediately which revealed a herniated disc that was pressing on a nerve. Dr Lins explained the only resolution was an operation. I was somewhat in shock. He told me he was leaving town for a few weeks and he wanted me to meet with a neurosurgeon immediately in case it got worse while he was away. His office manager set me up with an appointment for the next day. After meeting with the neurosurgeon, surgery was set up. I had surgery and woke up completely pain free. I found Dr. Lins to be thorough, compassionate and caring. I knew as soon as I met with him I was in excellent hands.

Doctor Lins is wonderful at what he specializes in. I sensed his authenticity, and sums up the best option for each patient. I have been struggling with Arthritis in both hands for a while. 2 Cortisone treatments 2 weeks apart in my left hand, and I have more mobility!!! I have been a golfer throughout my life, and thought I would have to give it up. I have had to make adjustments with age. However I can hold a Golf Club, and play Golf again. I still can get hand pain which is expected, I can bend my fingers, and the swelling is gone. My condition has improved!!! Thank you Doctor Robert Lins

I would leave 0 star if possible. Worst doctor I ever visited. I had back problem for about 3 years now, I went to him about 3 months ago with all x-ray's mri's, he even took spine x-ray at his office and charged me. First of all he doesn't care if I'm in pain waiting for him for an hour and thirty minutes (1 hour 30 mins in pain) then when he got to me he rushes me, cuts me off when im speaking, doesn't even answer my questions fully. For some reason he decided to tell me I had enlarged prostate (Urologist confirmed I do NOT) instead of telling me I have scoliosis, inflammation at the lower spine region, and one of the hip bone is smaller than the other. Funny enough a Chiropractor I visited today, first day at their place, they showed me everything in each x-ray and Mri. Imagine being me for a bit.. DO NOT go to this doctor. He is a waste of time and money.
