The office staff was friendly and efficient. My wait time was very short. Dr. Lin entered the examination room fully informed of the reason for my visit and explained to my satisfaction the cause and possible treatments (including the best time of the year to indergo such). He was warm, yet highly professional. I would refer him without hesitation, not just because of this visit, but because of his excellent training and experience (per his website) and will definitely be returning for treatments.

Dr. Lin was very professional, yet still friendly. I have been to dermatologists in the past who have been quite judgmental and I didn't get that sense at all from Dr. Lin. He patiently listened to and answered all of my questions. Everyone else in the office was very pleasant and helpful as well. Overall, it was a great experience.

Dr. Lin is a very friendly, nice doctor who was very professional. Being an almost 50 yr old woman who went just for a skin screening, I was very impressed that he did not mention any cosmetic procedures as happens at other offices. Very impressed with the office and whole staff and have already recommended him!
