Dr. Lin´s interaction with me as a patient is very professional, personal, and caring. He takes time in showing me his concern about my health. He doesn´t rush my visit with him.

Dr. Lin makes an extra effort to know and related to my busy lifestyle to understand how it may affect my medical condition. I appreciate him checking on my emotional well being while staying on top of my labs & radiology results to determined the optimum course of cation to follow my medical condition.

November 2015
Dr. Lin & his staff did a very good job, professional & warm hearted.

November 2015
Dr. Lin was personable enough, but seemed wholly unfamiliar with my medical history. Because my condition has a long history (i.e., chronic), I would have liked him to be. I´ve found this often the case at Virginia Mason. Docs seem to come in unprepared.
