You know you are in good hands the minute you meet Dr Lin. He is the ultimate professional and can put you at ease right away. He doesn't hesitate to answer your questions and is able to explain easily in laymen's language so you can readily understand the answer he gives. I was very impressed with him and his staff and would highly recommend him to anyone needing an opthomologist.
in Menifee, CA |
Dr Lin is very knowledgeable in his specialty. I had detached retina, and was sent to him on emergency basis. From the point I met this Gentleman, I knew I was in good hands. Dr Lin, and his staff made me feel very comfortable with the surgery I was about to through. Dr Lin has a fantastic bedside manner, and is, overall a wonderful Doctor
