I am more than satisfied with *Dr. Albert Lin. Unlike my previous interventional cardiologist he spends plenty of time explaining my condition, diagnosing it, and recommending solutions. While his specialty may be doing ablations he has a superior beside manner" - I am very confident in his abilities - A+.

I consider Dr. Albert Lin as not just "Very Good", but "Excellent", and I don't use that term very often in rating events or people. He is very knowledgeable, was able to provide details about a study that was released in July that inquired about because it was relevant to my situation, and provided thorough explanations but other matters that will help me in evaluating some next steps in my care. All explanations were in terms that I could easily understand. After each visit, I marvel at how good he is.
