Dr. Lin is an excellent physician who seems to genuinely care for the well being of his patients. He takes special concern to ensure parents are well informed so the child can have the best care possible. We have complete trust in him for Cameron's care.


The office just doesn't seem to run efficiently. I liked Dr. Lin very much, but the wait is too long with a small baby.


I would recommend him to to everybody, he's really great =)


Dr. Lin was very courteous and professional during the visit. He was very thorough.


I have been a health care provider for 24 years. I truly appreciate how important these surveys are to help improve patient care and outcomes. I wouldn't lie, or quickly complete this survey to mark it off my to do list. Dr. Lin is genuinely caring and thorough. My daughter and I both agree - he is an asset to your health care community.


Please see previous comment--Dr. Lin is a very caring and excellent provider.


Very nice & good doctor but difficult to understand due to accent.


Dr. Lin spent an exceptional amount of time explaining the details of her condition and all the possibilities of tests,procedures, and surgeries in the future so we would be prepared for anything that could come up in advance.


Dr. Linn is excellent! He is compassionate and kind with my child, and has provided wonderful care for her.


Dr. Lin is an excellent physician. He is compassionate, funny, and informative. He has a way of putting you at ease when discussing the care of his patients
