A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.

My best friend could have died
Self-verified patient of Dr. Joseph C Lin - Posted on April 8th, 2015
In 2009 my best friend went to Mr. Lin. Long story short: he took an x-ray of her stomach. She had large gallstones (they had been building up since 2005). He didn't recommend her for surgery and said to wait until she couldn't take the pain anymore. He never showed her the photos and spoke to her like a child. She went to her primary doctor and he looked at the charts and scheduled her for emergency surgery the next day with another specialist. The surgery went longer than expected and according to the surgeon her organs had swollen so much that the gallstones were going to explode within 24 hours if she hadn't had the emergency surgery. She should have sued.

Love this doctor.Very knowledgable.Made both my husband and I feel very comfortable. Don't know what the previous comments were all about. Have been acquainted w/ Dr. Lin's work since the 80's, when my son was in the hospital and Dr. Lin was doing his Fellowship program. He actually sat w/ my 8 year old son a few times. And played chess w/ him. I believe that constitutes excellent bedside manner.Maybe these other patients were just having a bad day.
