Dr. Lin is friendly and knowledgeable and goes to extra mile for her patients. This was my first time seeing her (my last dermatologist retired and it was time for a check-up) but it certainly won't be my last. Thank you Dr. Lin!

The waiting room is really nice with ample seating. The receptionist was very pleasant and informative about what I should expect to pay. Dr. Lin is fantastic and was very reassuring about safe medications to use while breastfeeding. I lovehow nice and friendly she is and how easy it is to book an appointment with her on here so I make the drive from Frederick to see her.

The entire staff is very pleasant and accommodating. I thought Dr. Lin was very thorough when performing my skin cancer screening. I knew when I booked the appointment that it would only be 10 minutes, but I would have liked alittle more time. I felt she kept talking so that I couldn't ask any questions in order to keep the appointment under 10 minutes. Other than that, I thought she was great and will definitely continue to see her! I plan on booking a cosmetic appointment to try Botox.

This is my 2nd dermatologist, I didn’t like the first one because he was not clear when explaining what’s need to be done. But Ms. Janet really standout, she clearly explains everything and gave me clear instructions on what to doand what to expect with the medication she prescribed me. I’m really satisfied . The receptionist in the front and her medical assistant are also nice and helpful.

I received a referral for my mom to visit another dermatologist, but found it hard to even get my call answered. In contrast, I booked online for the next day with Dr. Lin! We were processed swiftly on arrival. The doctorwas charming--friendly, great at explaining things, and able to do the required procedure in her office. It was painless. We were out in no time at all. Our follow-up is set for a reasonable amount of time. We have nothing but compliments for Dr. Lin and her staff.

Outstanding experience and visit.. Dr. Lin is extremely personable, friendly and knowledgeable.. she was able to (quickly and accurately) diagnose, explain, and resolve my issue, with only one brief visit and one follow up for a head shottreatment. I wholeheartedly give 5 stars, my wife was impressed also, with everything. Everyone was smiling at the end of it all and I plan to go back here again in the future.
