Dr Lin gave me back hope

I was getting out of breath after minor exertion, my doctors discovered a bad aortic valve and the need for 2 grafts which they were able to get to right away. Discharged yesterday, and full of new hope.

Surgeon to go to!

Dr. Lin was wonderful! He is busy but has good bedside manners. He operated on my father, who did really well from the surgery. He is meticulous and does not rush through things and explains everything in detail. He is a very skilled surgeon, and his results seem to be excellent. The scar on my fathers chest is almost invisible!
