Specialties

  • 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.

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Dermatology

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.

Takes a lot of time and answers all my questions

I found Dr. Lin to be very courteous and thorough. He answered all my questions and always answered all of my phone calls when I had concerns. The wait, can be long at time but that is usually because he spends more than the alloted time with his patients.

One Star

Dr Lin is a great doctor, BUT, he is ALWAYS LATE.....expect to wait 1-2 hours for him to show up for your appointment whether it's at his office, same day surgery center or the hospital. And when you question his staff they can only tell you he's running late. It's a terrible way to run a practice, and totally disrespectful to all the patients.
