Emily Lindner seems to be exactly what i’m looking for. I have a lot of medical issues that doctors would treatbut not address the cause. I only had one appointment with her but I feel confident we can address what’s going on. Health is not just treating a symptom its finding the root cause. She meets with you for an hour so that she fully understands what’s going on with you physically and mentally. I highly recommend if you are sick of Dr’s who will only address one of your symptoms at a time.

We found Dr. Lindner to be knowledgeable and kind. She listened to my daughter and knew exactly how to read whatshe was saying and not saying with her body language. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a natural way to solve a health related problem.

Dr.Lindner is fabulous! She tunes into you your body and what is happening in your life so she can treat you as the whole person you are. Most doctors look at one aspect of you, maybe even one part of you.I like Dr. Lindners holistic / whole person approach to medical treatment.

Since Dr. Lindner is more of a functional medicine practitioner, you have to adjust your expectations when you visit her. She does not want to just give you some medication to fix whatever problem ails you. She will ask you questionsabout all aspects of your lifestyle, personal history, stress, etc that may affect your condition. I knew this when going to see her. I have been experiencing some hair loss and was hoping to see her so she could confirm maybe it was just some lifestyle issues (poor sleep, nutrition, etc). She definitely delivered in this manner. However, I am giving her a mediocre review because of the lack of availability over the phone or even email. She doesn't have a receptionist (or at least I didn't see one sitting in her office) so she answers her own calls. I can understand that, but I don't feel comfortable going to get thousands of dollars worth of blood testing done when I'm not even 100% sure that I can reach my doctor over the phone to talk about the results. I tried calling her several times before our appointment to confirm if she was in-network with my insurance plan. I was not able to reach her. I also wanted to send her some documents from my insurance company to help with the billing process but I realized that she doesn't have an email address or any way of electronic communication (or at least, she never gave me any). I literally just have one phone number on file for her and whenever I have called it, I get the "voicemail box is full." For this reason, I am choosing to go with another doctor that I can trust will answer my calls.

Dr. Lindner was incredibly helpful at my appointment today. She not only spoke with me about my physical health but also gave me advice to help me with lifestyle changes and my emotional health. I appreciate Dr. Lindner's bedside mannerism andher attention to helping her patients holistically. If I could give her more stars, I would. Thank you for everything, Dr. Lindner. I appreciate you.

She treats her patients like human beings, not like numbers or bundles of symptoms to slap a diagnosislabel on. Whenever I get to see Dr Lindner, I always leave feeling better.

Doctor Lindner was an absolute Godsend! I’ve been struggling with a lingering cough that has irritated and inflamed my lungs and airways. Using ZocDoc, I easily located Dr. Lindner and was able to get an appointment the same day. What ablessing! Upon arrival, I was warmly greeted by Dr. Lindner and her beautiful pup. We went over my symptoms and the course is taken of previous treatment with antibiotics. She listened patiently, and made me feel understood. What’s more, she was able to point me to homeopathic remedies like taking additional vitamins that I was lacking as well as the option of acupuncture. None of my doctors previously had pointed out a potential root cause of why I have been getting horribly sick every year- that most Americans, in spite of having a healthy diet, lack key nutrients that are stripped away in the agricultural process. Wow! She also sent me with two scripts to get me over the hump in the meantime. I was grateful for her kind, gentle bedside manner. What’s more, she even followed up the next day personally to see how I was. I’ve even called a few times after and she’s gotten back fairly quickly to assure me that I’m on the mend. I’m glad that I found her! For anyone wanting a great doctor, I’d highly refer you her way!

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.
