As an eight-year-old, Dr. Amber Lin heard about people in Africa dying from easily treated diseases and decided to become a doctor in order to help. Dr. Lin chose to specialize in Family Medicine during her medical school OB/Gyn rotation when she discovered the joy and challenge of treating both babies and adults. “No two days are similar,” Dr. Lin explains. “As a Family Medicine practitioner, I can get to know an entire family as if they’re my own.” Dr. Lin has an interest in Tropical Medicine and Global Health. She loves music, singing and hip-hop dance.

Excellent experience.

Went in for ear wax cleaning along with shoulder pain. Ear wax cleaning did not go well. Flushing solution was done carelessly causing great pain to my LT ear. Left doctors office with enormous amount of pain in ear. Doctor was aware and admitted to me that this flushing has caused great pain in the past with other patients. Thankfully was able to resolve this issue on my own with some home remedies after a full day of being uncomfortable.

The only complaint I have is it it took such a long time to get hold of someone to make an appointment. That's it.

I felt that Dr. Lin attitude was a little too nonchalant about my symptoms which is disappointing. In the past, Dr. Lin has been attentive.

Dr. Lin is an intelligent, dedicated, thoughtful, and compassionate person who is a credit to her profession. She is a unique person who is always a pleasure to interact with.
March 29, 2021
I think that the doctor needs to go through a training program where she realizes that she can't be. So opinionated with her responses when it comes to be providing past medical history. She was putting down everything that my past doctors did for whatever reason I was not told that she just felt that she knew better.
March 04, 2021
I think she's the coolest Dr I've ever had. I'm very pleased with Amber. and just really, really think she's a smart cookie. Thank you. Bye.

Dr. Lin was friendly, patient and interested in my concerns. She ordered tests that appeared to align with my concerns. She was also generous with her time. I anticipate that I will have the opportunity to discuss and ask questions related to test results.
