    Patient Comments (3)
    in Allentown, PA |
    Excellent doctor, on time and quick which any woman appreciate for her GYN examination.
    in Allentown, PA |
    Dr Lin is very detached. His receptionist Linda is rude and never smiles, his entire staff are cold and detached
    in Quakertown, PA |
    He dismissed my explanation of something of extreme significance that had occurred in my gynecological history without attempting to listen to the symptoms. He did not perform a pap smear after I had scheduled an annual exam. He also refused to prescribe a therapeutic dose of Valtrex, despite having a partner without HSV.
