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!
