Dr. Lin is one of the finest doctors I have met in my long life. He takes time to listen to his patients, but above all, it is my personal opinion he is one of the best surgeons. He saved what I thought it was lost (use and feeling of some of my fingers). Thank you Dr. Lin !!

I was very dissatisfied with Dr. Lin services as a worker comp doctor. He does not listen to your needs and has poor beside manner. Do yourself a favor and find another worker comp doctor. He will send you to work in a week after surgery not giving you enough time to heal. Very dissatisfied!

Worst bedside manner! Not to mention unhelpful, rude, and so unprofessional! Don’t bother asking questions bc he’ll always answer, “Is it possible, well anything is possible..!” @@

Dr Lin is the best. But the staff at the front desk are some of the rudest people I know. That is the reason I am not inclined to recommend this practice.

Dr. Lin is amazing. Not only is he extremely intelligent, kind and knowledgeable but he is thorough, explained everything very specifically and took his time to make sure all of my questions were answered. His staff was also just as awesome! Highly recommend Dr Lin!

First visit went great, doctor was thorough and explained his diagnosis. Second visit I never made it into exam. Waited an hour and 45min to get in before I walked out. Staff told me it would be a while longer before he would see me. Exactly how incompetent are people that their schedule is 2hrs off? No appreciation for the patients time, we are the customers that pay you ...aren't we?
