Specialties

Dr. Jan J Lin has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

One Star

For a specialty provider, she seems disinterested in any level of actual patient care. Follow through and follow up is terrible. I've seen her for nearly four years - fed up with her lackadaisical approach to patient care and disinterest towards her patients.

Her refusal to listen to me, her huge ego and what appears to be a lack of ability to diagnose things that aren't classic textbook cases led her to misdiagnose my autoimmune disease as simple osteoarthritis. Fortunately, I went to a different doctor who diagnosed me properly and I'm now getting the help I need.
