Specialties

Dr. James T Lin Sr has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Very thorough and professional

I am generally in very good health, but was recently beset with fantastic headaches, cold sweats, neck pains, arm pains, and tingling sensations that sent me to ER, and ended up flat on my back. Another specialist prescribed some drugs and some therapy, but three weeks later, the symptoms were still debilitating. Being a Type A personality, I wanted some immediate answers, but my specialist was very busy and not available, so I decided to get a second opinion and marched into Dr. Lin's office armed with copies my CT scans, MRIs, and X rays. Surprisingly, he took the time to carefully go through the tests with me, drawing pictures for me of my compromised spine, explaining how it was affecting me, and best of all reassuring me that it was common with our ageing bodies, and nothing to get too worked up about. He gave me some instructions and some anti-inflammatory drugs, and lo and behold, three days later, I am up and about and getting to 100%. What a relief.

Great personal MD care

Dr. Lin has been my Neurologist for over three years. His staff is friendly and very efficient in getting you an appointment, sometimes the same day, which is rare with any specialist. Dr. Lin has always paid attention and listened to my medical complaints all the while taking the time to thoroughly explain each and every test (reason for and results). He follows up with me as soon as I am discharged from any hospitalization due to my seizures. I feel very comfortable and at ease with his level of care. People who expect a quick in and out visit or demand prompt service are expecting too much. Overall, Dr. Lin is very thorough and highly competent in his specialty. I would highly recommend him.
