  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
Dr. Lin is the best. He never seems rushed. He answers any and all questions in a way I can understand. He obviously stays on top of his field. I have three different conditions he is taking care of, monitoring, and updating me about advances in treatment. I also go to him for colonoscopies. His office staff is caring and responsive. I hope he is my doctor forever.
