Very helpful and understanding as I described my pain. Very nice staff as well. Dr. Lin listened and asked the right questions and i feel better just by going to the visit. He prescribed medication and ointment after going over the options and taking my thoughts into consideration. Thank you very much for seeing me on such short notice.

We needed attention for our son, I used Zocdoc to find provider near hour who had availability, my appointment was confirmed. But did feel rushed by doctor, wait was too long . It met our needs due to son's injured leg but doctor seemed too busy (perhaps appointment time should not appear on Zocdoc)? Overall satisfactory and Facility is clean.

Not very pleased. Doctor diagnosed me with Rheumitoid Arthritis without xrays and put me on steroids with no explanation as to what and why I was on them. Also, I had to suggest on my own physical therapy?

The man definitely knows his business. I have had my share of surgical procedures and was most impressed by his prior medical history in the military. He repaired my torn (shredded) rotator cuff in such a way that made my rehabilitation go much smoother, faster and easier. My physical therapists were blown away at the full range of motion that I was capable of! Thank you Dr Lin...??

My grandmother broke her wrist a couple of years ago, and highly recommended Dr. Lin when I needed surgery to repair a wrist I fractured in an automobile accident last summer. I had never broken or fractured a bone in my life previously (I'm 40 now), so I was nervous and a bit scared of the whole painful process. Dr. Lin, Katelyn and Jon (his staff) are efficient and extremely compassionate - taking extra time to explain the procedure, what to expect post-op during rehabilitation, and made sure I was as comfortable and relaxed as possible throughout the entire process. I cannot thank them enough, and I highly recommend Dr. Lin and his practice!

This was my first time meeting the doctor. I felt comfortable with him but felt like he brushed off my pain. He did put together an initial treatment plan so we will see if things improve. The office staff was friendly and quick. I am lukewarm warm about this being my regular ortho but I am giving him a shot. He seemed to have a good bedside manner just not thorough in regards to my issue.

Did not show my wide and I my x-ray and downplayed an extremely serious issue with my hip implant. Suggested a shoe lift for my LLD to see if it helped my pain and mobility problem, said it might take a year to improve. After a month of the shoe lift for a 1" LLD, no improvement in mobility or pain. Got a second opinion from a different OS who showed me the x-ray of my prosthesis which had eroded the bone in my pelvis to the point of very little bone structure left. I will require a hip reconstruction......a year with the shoe lift would have just made the problem much worse.

Dr Lin immediately understood my particular medical problem and suggested treatment options. I was thankful that I was not a candidate for knee surgery at this time. The injections are working just as he hoped and I am one satisfied patient. I was in and out of the office in a flash. His medical staff members are courteous when answering my questions and the office staff members are more than helpful when answering my insurance questions.
