Specialties

Dr. Terence Lin has the following 3 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.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Dedicated

I read the reviews, and yes, he often runs behind. I heard him telling his staff to let a patient come late, and I was really mad. Then I saw the lady, and she must have been 100 years old. I realized that he must be late because he cares. He also called me at 7:30 one night to give me results of a test. When I told him he was working late that night, he laughed, and told me that it was still early. The world would be a better place if more people were as committed as Dr. Lin. Easily, the best, smartest, doctor that I've ever seen. I went to UCSF and Stanford for second opinions, and I never heard anything different or extra. In fact, if anything, they were less complete (I had to see a nurse first), and only focused on one problem. Dr. Lin was the only one who even asked about everything else, and helped me make a decision not just about my heart, but about my life, and was the only one who told me all of my options, along with the good and bad of everything. When I was in the hospital, all of the nurses said he is the best, and nurses always tell it like it is. I owe Dr. Lin my life, and he'll deny it. A great doctor, I can't say enough about him.
