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.
