Dr. Lin tries to address my husband's concerns.
June 24, 2021
I clocked in 10 minutes before my appointment time, and it took an hour. An hour. I fell asleep in my chair. Almost fell down, in the room. Door closed. No ventilation. I woke up. Almost fall in half down to the floor. I got up and laid on the table and slept there for 20 minutes, and I finally woke up and I open the door to get some air circulation in the room. this was really, really bad.Then one of the attendees came up,and said oh he'll be with you will be with you in just a couple of minutes, after she saw me, open the door and leave it open. And that did not happen. It didn't happen to another 20 minutes while I fell asleep on the table again, took me an hour and 10 hundred an hour and 15 minutes or 10 minutes just to get through this appointment, not good.

I enjoy the video consults. I'm glad to not have to go to the medical office. Obviously your question regarding office staff is not applicable. Also, how eager am I to refer friends and family to an oncologist in hematology? Not very, considering what that implies. You need to rethink your questions.

PIH Oncology is the best. They saved my life. For almost 9 years they've always been there for me. Your oncology staff is outstanding, don't ever change how they provide treatment. Thank you.
March 23, 2021
I don't feel provider listens carefully to my concerns n I have seen mistakes already done. It's a Cancer facility yet I don't feel the confidence or trust or care that patient should feel when going through Cancer. It saddens me. All I'm left is to sit there just listening n why bother asking questions when I don't feel I'm being understood. Just see my labs why ask me questions when they are all being brushed off. Anyways I could be here complaining but I don't think it's going to change.
March 18, 2021

He was very kind and you didn't rush me. He sat and talked to me and answered. My question was I really like the way he handled the the my visit.
March 12, 2021
As a brand new patient to this doctor the doctor felt the need to answer his cellphone while in the room with me during our visit unacceptable unprofessional and I only have been going there is because I absolutely have to because of PIH.
March 12, 2021
Dr. Lin was extremely professional his team was right there with me for every step of the way of my cancer and I really appreciate it. I felt very supportive.
March 11, 2021

March 09, 2021
I appreciate Dr.Lin's consideration in keeping his patience safe during this Pandemic. Having a Virtual appointment with him was perfect. He is always so polite and greets you with a smile. I always feel he is giving me his full attention. Dr.Lin explains things in laymen's terms, so I will understand any medical information he is giving me. Before we end our session, he never fails to ask me if there is anything I would like to ask him or if I have any concerns. I'm left with a feeling, that he really cares about his patients.
