This was my initial visit with Dr Lin. He took time to carefully assess my condition and provided me with various options. He even ordered more tests to arrive at a better decision for my health. I saw him as a thorough and compassionate doctor.

Dr. Lin was very nice, friendly and professional. He listened to everything I had to say and explained everything very clearly to me. The receptionist and the nurse were friendly and nice, and I didn't wait very long to see the doctor. It was a pleasant experience for my first visit with Dr. Lin.
October 13, 2021

October 07, 2021

October 05, 2021
Dr. Lin is fantastic! Thank you!!
October 01, 2021
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.
September 17, 2021

August 25, 2021
I had not been to the office in 2 years due to COVID and they were very welcoming and doctor remembered who I was and ask how I was doing along with my family . I thought that was very nice of him.
August 19, 2021
This was our first time meeting with Dr. Lin. He was very professional and caring. He answered all our questions and spent plenty of time with us. We were very pleased with our visit.
August 19, 2021
For an oncologist you might think he would be compassionate and caring but he is just the opposite. When he called he did not ask how I was or how I was feeling, He only wants to know what is happening with the surgeon, when is the whipple?. Since the day I was diagnosed all I have ever heard from this doctor is whipple, whipple, whipple. Not how are you feeling or lets see how we can keep you alive. He has always asked me, "do you have any questions?" and then I am on my way. As much money as this guy must be making he sure does not do much for it. Sorry for being blunt but you asked!
August 13, 2021
Dr. Lin answered my questions in a manner that was easy to understand. I did not feel rushed at all and I'm very glad he is my doctor.
August 13, 2021
Dr Lin is patient, caring and very professional.
August 10, 2021
Dr. Lin and his staff has been very good with me. I was receiving care at another facility for the first 3 years of my diagnosis and there's a stark difference between just the overall place and the care and I'm very thankful Dr. Lin listens and he's truly a partner in my health, and I'm very thankful for him and his attentiveness and his nurses, staff and assistants, and the office staff as well.
August 10, 2021
Always pleasant.
August 06, 2021
I really felt that Dr. Lin listened to me, answered my questions and he was very knowledgeable about my situation and I felt very comfortable, and I would definitely recommend him to anybody else in my situation and I thank him very much. Thank you.
August 06, 2021
Felt reassured about decision that I made that will affect my future
August 05, 2021

August 02, 2021
I would say Dr. Lin is one of the best doctors there at PIH and I definitely high recommended him, he's one of the best that has been been with me that I don't, I can't even explain it. If it wasn't for him, I would be in a bad situation. Thank you.
August 02, 2021

July 12, 2021
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.
June 23, 2021
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.
June 14, 2021
Dr. Lin and his staff were all very nice and friendly.
June 07, 2021

March 24, 2021
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
Thank you to Dr Lin and his staff and PIH.

March 15, 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
Saw him for the first time. I was really impressed as he had already studied my medical history. I knew I was in good hands.
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.

The staff was really friendly, and courteous, but the Dr made me feel like I was dumb, and tried to speak to me in Drs terms, not in plain English, which I needed, but he just shook his head, never giving me definite answers.
