I have complete trust and faith in the care I receive from Dr. Lin. When he runs late I assume it is because he treats all of his patients with the same thoroughness and care.
AGAIN, DR LIN SAW MYSELF AT THE SAME TIME HE SAW MY HUSBAND AND MADE SURE WE BOTH WERE TAKEN CARE OF. VERY GOOD ON HIS PART!
I have cancer once again. I was @ your site last year of 2016. Spent 4 months. You @ that time saved my life then, hope it will happen again with treatment for the next 4 to 6 months.
I would give Dr. Lin 5 stars for everything. I can´t say enough about him.
Took extra time, and made sure I understood
Dr. Lin was courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable. He put me at ease and I feel confident being under his care that he genuinely cares for his patients. Thank you.
We like Dr. Lin and his level of professionalism
In my experience, few doctors are as friendly in the first appt as Dr Lin was. Refreshing.
Saved my life.
I will make a recommend If needed.
Still I´m very impressed with the dr. _____ have @ Virginia Mason-
The staff and doctors worked together to decide on best method to treat my problem. And pass on information from one doctor to the other in a timely manner.
Dr. Lin always takes time to answer my questions and provide me information and answers. He speaks to me at my level of knowledge and helps me understand when I have questions.
Your care providers are so informative and patient in explaining the condition of the patient, and explaining the pros/cons of each option.
Dr. Lin explains things academically and in lay terms, and he always makes sure my husband and I understand the information. He discusses information that he has consulted with other professionals, and this increases my confidence that he is providing the best, individualized care for me.
Dr Lin has always explained each process well and answered my questions with clear explanations.
I was sad that Dr. Vishner left, but Dr. Lin is so nice he made me feel less scared. Dr. Lin.
This was the best appointment I had with Dr, Lin, I felt like he truly cares and I´m not just another number which is a shift in his care of me.
Dr. Lin always answers questions and spends whatever time is necessary on each appointment.
Dr Lin has always given us as much time as needed to answer all our questions concerning treatment and effects. His manner is friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. we have very much appreciated being in his care.
Dr. Lin is particularly great in dealing with my nephew who is a special needs (autistic, Asperger´s) adult.
Dr Lin saved my life. I will be forever grateful.

Dr Lin is fantastic. Having cancer is a difficult disease to cure and deal with. He and his staff have always been there. They are courteous, kind, knowledgeable and understanding. He always has time and never even seems to be in hurry. We have and will refer to to him and Virginia Mason.
