Patient Reviews

“Dr. Lin and the entire staff were wonderful. I felt very comfortable throughout my procedure.” — Adam H.

“Dr. Lin took the time to clearly explain my condition, its causes and treatment options. He recommended the least invasive option first, and I appreciate that. Several months down the line, I'm doing well. Additionally, the entire team, from reception through imaging, was warm, helpful and approachable. It was a very positive experience.” — Yvonne L.

“Dr. Lin was a terrific doctor. He got me to the right people and it started on the same day I saw him. I was told it would probably take about a year to heal completely but if you saw me you wouldn't know anything was still wrong with me. Thank you Dr. Lin.” — Eugene P.

“Every visit with Dr. Lin and his staff is a positive experience. He helped me with my problem and always looks for ways to treat before looking to surgery. Very efficient & personable staff and Dr. Lin is a warm and caring physician. I recommend him to everyone I know with hand problems.” — Janis I.

“Great Doctor! Put me at ease regarding my carpal tunnel surgery!” — Jessica V.
