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.
