He was very knowledgeable and forward/direct to the point. Dr. Lin explained it very thoroughly on what’s going on when no one ever did.. I have meet several doctors in the same hospital. Dr. Lin was the only doctor that suggested a different treatment and he even use the eraser board to explain what he was recommending for me to have. Here I am today with the results of the procedure he has done on my way recovery with great progress and hopes of not taking any medication at the end of the year. I cannot be thankful enough for making my life a better than six months ago. Thank you Dr Lin!!!

Disclosures

Albert C. Lin, MD reported no external professional relationships for calendar year 2021.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
