I broke my hand last year I went 3 times and he saw me not even 10 minutes, never checked my hand, and they have a sign that you need to pay cash or check only at the time of the visit, I paid cash and didn't keep the receipt, few months after I got a bill for 15.00 for the 1st visit, they said I never paid, I will never go there again

Dr. Lin is an excellent surgeon and a really good doctor. I have a rare disease. Dr. Lin knew about the disease and was hesitant to do surgery to remove a painful calcinosis, but I insisted. He did a great job and it has not returned. Dr. Lin also has a great sense of humor which is always helpful in stressful situations! I highly recommend him.
