Dr. Kenneth J Lin has the following 1 specialty
- 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.

He is a compassionate doctor who truly shows that he cares about the well-being of patients. He also, very clearly, shows that he is not after your money. It is quite amazing that he will give 12 month prescriptions, unlike many doctors. So, if there are no medical problems during the course of the year, it is not necessary to see the doctor. Some doctors require a lot of visits and will not give prescriptions for more than 1 or 2 months. Of course, Dr. Lin does follow-up and monitor when needed. When I had abnormal tests for liver function, I definitely went in to see him several times for repeat tests. He is a great internist who has done some special procedures for me. He is great with a knife. He removed a carbuncle from my neck and another growth. He always wears a very warm smile. He nudges me about my weight, too. He is simply wonderful. I have seen quite a number of doctors over the years. Dr. Lin is great. He is near the Virginia Square Metro.
Dr. Lin has been my primary physician for many years and I highly recommend him. He always spends as much time as I need to answer questions, discuss issues of concern, and/or provide recommendations for speicalists, as needed. He is knowledgeable, thorough, patient, kind, and has a good sense of humor!
I've been working with Doctor Lin since he started at the practice. He is an amazing doctor who spends the time it takes to hear your issues and give a thoughtful response. I now live near Mount Vernon in Alexandria but would never think of switching doctors. In fact, my 17 year old son has recently made the transition from working with his pediatrician to working with Doctor Lin.
