This was my first visit with Dr. Lin. I was very satisfied with my experience. I felt that he was knowledgeable and highly educated regarding my rare disease; this is so important to patients like myself with high anxiety who worry about their health, it is like a weight being lifted.
August 25, 2022
Yes, I was very pleased with Dr. Lin. He's very professional and explained what I'm going through a very pleasant manor. Very gentle and kind in his demeanor. I would highly recommend him to anybody. He is just a great physician and knows what he's doing. I'm glad to be under his care. Thank you.

Trying to get a parking spot in the parking area took 10 to 15 minutes, so arriving far before the 15 minutes required by your doctor is not enough time to get a parking space and make the appointment on time. Parking lot should be expanded for patients using the Wells Building. The younger patients park outside the area and walk in. Getting out of the Wells gate is always backed up making the line exiting the parking area wait for a long time to enter into the gate line. Many yesterday went to the exit in front of the hospital instead of the exit to Putnam.

I'd like to thank Dr. Lin and his staff. I had my appointment on the 28th of June.

The only real issue I have with this office is the parking situation that is laborious and VERY inconvenient. The only way to avoid it is to park a couple blocks away and walk to my appointment.

The doctors Tel A Health visit that he offers. Are very, very convenient and helpful. We're elderly, we don't drive. We'd be in a pickle if we if we didn't have access to that. So the doctor's office is very generous, and very courteous about offering us visits by phone, and we appreciate it. Thank you.
April 11, 2022
I am very happy with Dr. Lin, because it takes a lot of interest in his patients and he really listens, and he tries to make you understand, where exactly, you are, in your disease, or whatever. I'm very happy with him. I wish that would be a lot more doctors like him, so we could trust them, and place our life on their hands. Thank you for Dr. Lin and may God bless him and give him a lot of life, and health and and help many people like he has helped me. Thank you. Goodbye.

We looked at Dr. Link who did the same exam before, I don't know if that's why you did it, but Dr. Link didn't (unreadable). I would recommend him with my eyes closed and also to this because they are all the angels of health. I'm happy with everything, this person did the same thing they did to me two days ago, I don't know why (unreadable) thank you very much to all the health servers.

February 11, 2022
Always treated with respect.
February 10, 2022
The medical provider was super in all regards, but the operating system which allowed me to talk with him, might be modern, but it operates as if it were made for medical services in the dark middle ages. It took me about 1 and 1/2 hours to reach the doctor, or him reaching me for a 10 minute consultation. It's the electronics of the experience, which make the medical services such a nightmare!
February 09, 2022
Sincere caring knowledgeable Dr. Thank you
February 07, 2022
Dr Lin is the best Dr I have ever seen at PIH. He explaines everything I don't understand. I feel he cares for all his patients. I trust him with my care.
January 24, 2022
The PIH "zoom" system is awful. I have no problem with Zoom and Skype. But with your system it took several tries to be able to hook up for our video chat. I have no problem with Dr Lin and his staff. He, they, are great. When you ask if I would recommend him... I don't wish blood cancers on anyone, but, yes, I would if someone needed his services.
January 21, 2022
Hi, my name is [PHI removed]. And Dr. Lin is not a [name removed] and staff are very professional. I love going over there and I tell everybody that. Need to go to the doctors. If you could give Dr. Lin very excellent doctor. Very good stuff. I really love going there. Even though I hate going to the doctor's office. I love going there because of the treatment.
January 21, 2022
I was well treated by (INAUDIBLE). He was very good, very clear, and...answered my questions. I felt very confident. When I got home, I thought of more questions because it always happen and I'm sure when I see him next time, he would answer whatever questions I have. But all in all, it...I thought...even with bad news, I felt very confident in his decision to start treatment immediately. Thank you.

This doctor is somehow not connected with the PIH computer system. I had to hand-deliver a copy of patient information forms I had filled out last week and then I had to fill out oppatient forms again. The stack of forms was given to me when I got there. They should have been sent to my home so I could bring them, already filled out, to my appointment. The doctor never saw the forms before seeing me. He asked some of the same questions that had been answered on the forms. I would have felt more comfortable if the doctor had reviewed the forms before he saw me. If the doctor is not going to use the forms, why do I need to fill them out? The support staff seemed very competent and were polite and professional.
