I've taken my grandmother to many orthopedic surgeons throughout Orange County for her pain. Dr. Lin is, by far, the most knowledgeable, considerate, and honest doctor I've come across. He has been taking care of her orthopedic issues for the past 2 years and treats her like his own family member. Dr. Lin is an outstanding surgeon but an even better person. He's the man!

Dr. Lin is a great guy! He is very knowledgeable and understanding. My grandmother fractured her femur during the COVID 19 pandemic and he was the surgeon to perform the surgery. He was the ONLY doctor at Fountain Valley Regional Hospital to stay in contact with me and ensure my grandmother was okay and taken care of.

Dr. Lin is such an amazing doctor. He is very professional and humble. My 88 year old mother had fractured her hip and I thought she would stay in bed forever. However, within 1 month my mom could walk without pain. She was in good hands and I can not say thanks enough to Dr. Lin.
