Dear science nerds who need medical expertise: I appreciate Dr Lindner's willingness to work in a collaborative way to achieve the best results FOR YOU. Unfortunately within many medical practices there is a severe over reliance on statisticaldata that is too varied because it contained both healthy and unhealthy individuals. Besides, statistics tell you NOTHING about an individual and only tendencies about a population. Dr Lindner recognizes this and provides truly individual healthcare.

As always, seeing Dr Lindner today was a breath of fresh air. She listens intently to what you say and interprets symptoms, concerns, etc with clarity. I always leave with a “to do” list in hand, literally, with her suggestions fortreatment. I appreciate her combination or both western and holistic approaches. Functional medicine for the win!

I think Dr Lindner is a great example of where traditional medicine needs to go in order to help patients find ways to become healthier. So much of traditional medicine relies too heavily on harsh medications when readily available over thecounter compounds and good lifestyle habits could produce better results. But sometimes, western med does have a good and necessary solution. Dr Lindner's knowledge of both traditional medicine and functional medicine gives the patient many more effective tools to improve their health.

Emily Lindner has been my primary physician for 9+ years. Her understanding of my health is remarkably comprehensive, with a depth far beyond what I'd expect from a physician. I feel so lucky to be in her care. Also, working withher I have learned so much about what I need to do to care for myself and my family, and even to make my biggest dreams come true. Over the years Dr. Lindner has shared so many resources, from her broad point of view and knowledge across medicine, Western and other, to very particular, wonderful specialists. I highly recommend Dr. Lindner to patients who are interested in taking an active role in achieving and maintaining good health.

After meeting with Dr. Lindner, she recommended that I take a couple tests that would be mailed to me at home. She left me very unclear instructions for how to take the tests and left my very short and cryptic textresponses to answer my questions. After many frustrating days awaiting her clear instructions and a call back, I finally was able to send in the tests. She told me she would let me know the results, but never did. I called and texted her numerous times to ask for the results but she never called or even texted back. I find this behavior to be extremely odd and unprofessional, and makes me sorely regret ever seeing her. I would strongly discourage anyone from seeing Dr. Lindner as she clearly is not invested enough in her patients' well-being.

In this world where Western medicine provides (if you're lucky) an average of 10 -15 minutes face-to-face time with your actual physician, Dr. Linder is a breath of humanity and kindness. Her patients benefit from her own brand of True PhysicianCare. Visits with Dr Linder are never rushed. As a patient, I feel Dr. Lindner listens and hears my concerns. Dr. Lindner looks for the root of the problem rather than masking the concern with other doctors' common approach of a pill for an ill. I would recommend Dr. Emily Linder without hesitation. Thank you, Dr. Linder!

I sought out Dr. Lindner because I was looking for a new primary physician, and I wanted someone a little more holistic. I was also sick with some sort of sinus infection/sore throat. I arrived for my appointment and was askedwhat brought me in. When I mentioned I was sick she immediately made me put on a mask, and put one on herself. She asked what my symptoms were (sore throat, head/sinus pain, congestion), but NEVER checked me out - didn't look in my ears/nose/throat or feel any lymph nodes. She just immediately stated I had the flu. She then discussed ways in which I can PREVENT from getting sick - which I definitely appreciate, but it was a little late for that. She gave me list of holistic options to try for flu. I ended up going to an urgent care afterward, because I really thought I needed antibiotics (I did not feel like I had the flu). We also discussed a few other issues I'm having - pain in my hip as well as a painful cyst in my wrist. She said she would get the name of a hand/wrist doctor and send it to me. My appointment was last Tuesday and I still have not heard from her with the reference. In my opinion, this is extremely unprofessional, and I will not be returning.

I confirmed ahead of time that Dr. Lindner treated the type of issue that I needed to be seen about yet she spent the majority of the session basically trying to come up with all of the reasons that I don'thave the issues that I know I have (ongoing parasite issue). In fact, never did address or come up with possible interventions. Instead of listening to me, she continued to try to fit me into her idea of treatment- for instance, she wanted to talk way more about past trauma and vitamin D3 levels than parasite treatment. She even tried to tell me that what are my food allergies, are not allergies but "sensitivities' making lots of assumptions about what kind of testing I had done. Guess what? they are allergies! Had 'em since I was a kid. Also didn't believe that digestive enzyme supplements cause me digestive issues that includes sharp pain because I guess digestive enzymes are "so great." Asked her to write a prescription for parasite medicine so I could at least get something out of my appt but then was never available to answer the pharamcy's call about substitutions. Unprofessional, aggravating and disappointing.

I have been seeing Dr.Emily Lindner on occasions when I need to speak to her about my general health, get a second opinion, get another view from a more holistic perspective. She is very professional and knowledge and will go overall your health details with you and discuss alternatives. I think that it is very important as we all get older to look at ways in which we can get stronger and live the best life possible without serous health set backs and Dr. Emily can help you assess your options or discuss any concerns with your current medication or treatment. She is frank and to the point and well worth an appointment as is evident by many of us who have "visited" her for numerous years. Whenever any of my friends have a concern , the question is " Have you seen Dr.Emily?"
