I'm a singer/performer and Linnea performed a surgery on my vocal cords. I'm still a singer!! She was amazing. I've referred other vocalist for the same surgery and they too are very happy with her. God bless her!

I went to her as she was recommended by other doctors. Unfortunately this doctor was not competent and caused throat problems that I never had. Her standard office procedure caused injury to the throat which has continued to this day. There was never a diagnosis for the original issue I went to see her for. Beware the positive comments from others. I would not recommend her to anyone.
