I really appreciate Dr. Lin´s willingness to spend (sometimes considerable) time explaining things and showing empathy for my situation
February 2018
I can´t say enough good things about Dr. Lin. My condition is very scary, both to me and to my loved ones, and he did a very good job of reassuring me. He wouldn´t let me give up. _____ I had the option of receiving treatment elsewhere, but I chose Virginia Mason because of him.

While I wish I never had cancer and hope no one I know ever does, if they do, I would absolutely recommend Dr. Lin as an oncologist. He has been fantastic, going out of his way to address concerns and explain options, spending as much time with me as needed.

July 2017
Given that I had missed my appointment, I appreciated that Dr. Lin did not seem rushed and took time to discuss my injury and next steps. The only reason for not giving a higher rating was that I was referred to another specialist.

Dr. Lin is awesome.
June 2017
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.
