At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
Dr Lin has guided my care and understands my heart condition throughly. He always provides excellent treatment that has kept me healthy in spite of my congenital heart defect. He also encourages open communication so that my needs are always met which gives me confidence in his care.
His approach is one of confidence and a broad up-to-
date knowledge of the field of electrophysiology. He defers recommendations in an unrelated area to that speciality. He is patient in answering multiple questions.
Dr. Lin and the Cardiology team is up to date on the latest research, technology, and procedures. Dr. Lin and team truly care about me as a patient, and I would say, this level of care is the standard of care for all patients.
Very professional, knowledgeable , excellent communicator, Takes the time to explain and listen. He was recommended by a physician that we trust and has the reputation of being a highly skilled cardiologist and interventionist.
Dr, Lin was very good, very informative to the point of encyclopedic. I imagine he is a very good professor. My impression from our visit is that he spends little time in the clinic, especially at CDH which would be my primary visit location. However, he said his team would be available. I've been there and done that with Northwestern Medicine. The doctors seem to identify with their own celebrity more than being patient centric.
Dr. Lin listened to and answered all of my questions regarding my care. In a world where every conversation seems to be brief, I appreciated Dr. Lin taking the time to clearly explain all of the options available for my care.
Since I didn't meet with him for an exceptionally long time it is hard to judge. However, he seems quite knowable, though he lost me a bit with his explanations. I felt almost like I shouldn't be wasting his time.
Dr. Lin is crazy smart, extremely knowledgeable. AND. And he listens, and he is friendly, and he patiently explains the options and is expert opinion. There are a lot of smart people out there. Dr. Lin is smart AND caring. A really great guy. I am very thankful for the time he was able to talk with me, to educate me, and to provide his expert opinion.
Dr. Lin is the greatest. He takes time in my appointments to listen to me and answer my questions. He explains test results clearly and works in partnership with me in developing effective treatment plans.
Very academic presentation. He had read some of my past history prior to entering the exam room, making me feel he had prepared for the appointment. He was recommended by my cardiologist as a good fit for my specific needs. He ordered procedures relevant to my history and my concerns for a treatment plan. He presented several options for treatment and explained the reasons. He answered a number of questions I had prepared. Moving forward I am hopeful his expertise will provid me with an improved quality of life!
Reputation of NMH. Past history of my medical care thru NMH physicians. Proximity and convenience of off site appointments. Referral from my cardiologist as a reputable source to pursue treatment options for an existing condition. Confidence I will receive the most up-to-date competent assessment in a speciality area. Further, that an individualized treatment plan will be based on the medical evaluation pending test results.
