05/11/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lin and his staff are exceptional and truly care about their patients. Thanks to Dr. Lin and his incredible staff, I got pregnant on the first IVF cycle and I’m now 11 weeks pregnant. Every insecurity and fear is put to ease the minute you walk thru the door. I strongly recommend doing acupuncture with Sayaka .She is so sweet and the minute you walk thru her door, all the stress just melts away. She is too humble to tell you this, but out of the patients who did in-vitro and acupuncture with her, 80 to 90 percent got pregnant. I did it because I read that scientific studies have shown that acupuncture increases your chances 15-20 percent. I really was convinced of Dr. Lin’s passion for what he does, when we watched our baby wiggle all over on our 9 week ultrasound .Dr. Lin was so excited for us; and you really hear that in his voice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0NXhDBrbZE  Respond

17/03/13 5 4 5 5 Dr Lin did a great job. Our first cycle ended in chemical pregnancy, but he switched things up for the second cycle and I am now 11 weeks pregnant with twins.It is easy to get an appointment, his staff are great, and he is available 24/7 to answer concerns. He's not the chattiest of doctors, but he's confident and reassuring and gets results. I would recommend him to anyone having fertility problems.  Respond

13/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lin and his staff are great! We switched to his office after seeing two other REI doctors, and his office was the best by far. The nursing/office staff are very professional and caring. They always did what they could to support you throughout treatment. I was really impressed with Dr. Lin's bedside manner - he is a very busy doc, but always made the time to really listen to my concerns. He is a very kind-hearted physician who puts patients first. Unlike my other REI docs, he saw me at every appointment and made sure that important things like lab test results were reviewed promptly. In 2012, we got pregnant on our first IVF cycle and are now the proud parents of healthy twins.  Respond

29/01/13 2 2 3 3 I am currently his patient. I like the dr. but One thing they need to get a head up is to tell those gals, I think is the LVN not to talk too loud while ppl are having ultra sound in the room.  Respond

10/09/12 5 5 5 5 Knowledgeable and compassionate are the perfect descriptions of Dr. Lin and Reproductive Fertility Center. Dr. Lin and his staff are really great at what they do! Their patience and compassion ease the stress of infertility and I would recommend Dr. Lin to anyone having trouble conceiving. Thank you Dr. Lin for everything!  Respond

07/04/12 5 4 5 5 My husband and I had 4 failed IVF cycles at another Irvine clinic. We came to Dr. Lin and got pregnant on the first cycle. Dr. Lin is a very knowledgeable doctor. He changed our IVF protocol and as a result we had better quality embryos. We are now proud parents to triplets. We can't thank him enough for the three little miracles in our lives. Thank you Dr. Lin for our little blessings.

18/03/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lin and his staff helped bring us a baby girl that we were never able to have on our own. We felt comfortable and important every time we visited him. He is not only a very caring man, but also great at what he does!

04/01/12 5 5 5 5 Best dr in the world. Compared to other specialists who sent my husband and I home saying that we can not have a baby of our own. Dr. Lin told us that it will work with our own sperm and egg and now we have two great girls. Every Xmas I thank god for guiding us to dr. Lin's clinic.  Respond

14/12/11 5 5 5 5 I have never met such a nice doctor. Dr. Lin came as a blessing for us. He gave us his cell number at first visit and you can call him anytime and he will respond you back. His staff is great too and always responsive.

03/08/11 5 5 5 5 I can not find the words to show my appreciation for Dr. Lin and his staff. My husband and I tried to conceive naturally for nearly 3 years. After our first consultation with Dr. Lin we knew he was the right choice for us. The staff goes above and beyond more than one could imagine. Jennifer met me after hours just to give me the proper syringes for my morning injection. We were given Dr. Lin’s personal cell phone number after our first visit. Every time I was promised a call, I got one. I even text the dr. on one occasion and he responded promptly. After a “textbook” cycle we got the best news…our baby girl is now due in 10 weeks. I feel like we were treated like family, like we mattered. We weren’t lost in the hustle of a typical medical office. If anyone were to ask me I would try my hardest to convince them Dr. Lin is the BEST and very trustworthy! Confident, yes, but with results like this I would be too!

03/01/11 5 5 5 5 Dr Lin and his staff were the only ones who were able to get us pregnant. I just had my baby and we are so thankful. We just wish someone had told us about his clinic a little earlier, for we had tried for four years before a friend who also got pregnant At his clinic referred us. By far they are the best at what they do, and they were always nice, approachable, and accessible. We received the best news after the first in vitro treatment that we were pregnant, and it has been a dream come true since. I feel it's very important to find a doctor and clinic who truly care about getting you pregnant, and that's what we found. We would recommend them even if it didn't work out. We have been recommending them to everyone, and we now have many pregnant and happy friends =)

07/02/10 5 5 5 5 If you want to get pregnant then Dr. Lin is the one toshould see. I wasted time and money seeing another doctor before I found Dr. Lin. We needed donor egg IVF (DE-IVF). The average clinic success rates of around 60%. Dr. Lin's stats are about 85% for DE-IVF! Dr. Lin is compassionate, caring, fair, kind, knowledgeable and professional. His staff is Excellent! The embryologist is extremely skilled and talented. On my first visit, I did have to wait longer than expected, but for each visit after that, they always had me in and out of the door. I felt taken care of, not rushed. Dr. Lin does all of his own exams and ultrasounds and PERSONALLY calls at the end of the evening with updates for blood work and fertility reports. I went to Dr. Lin in mid September, but early December, I had what I went for; a positive pregnancy test! I cannot say enough good things about this clinic and staff. These people can help and the prices are competitive. Dr. Lin truly cares and stands behind his work.  Respond

06/02/10 5 5 5 5 Dr Lin is the nicest doctor I've met. Like the previous reviewers, the first time I met him I thought he was yelling at me the whole time and was kind of a sales person. However, I knew that he raised his voice because he was very passionate in what he does (I'm Chinese and know that Chinese people tend to talk loudly when they are passionate about the discussion). He is very accessible to his patients and will answer calls to his cell phone at all times. His lab is top notch, which contributes greatly to his high success rate. I know a few people who had failed multiple cycles at other clinics and then succeeded at his clinic on the first try. We were ready to use donor eggs when we met him, but he believed we should try again with my own eggs. It worked and I am very grateful.  Respond

28/01/10 5 5 5 5 We had a wonderful experience at Dr. Lin's practice. I think you need to have actually gone through an IVF cycle there to know what it's like. We had failed at a different center and never even made it to embryo transfer! We not only made it to transfer with Dr. Lin, but I am now 12 weeks pregnant! Dr. Lin was very passionate at our consultation as well, but we liked it because we feel the same way about our previous failed cycles (Frustrated!!). Plus, they gave us a good discount because my husband is a teacher, and the manager helped us save (a sizable amount of) money on fertility medication, which helped a lot. We would recommend him to friends and family.  Respond

07/12/09 2 2 1 1 I second that. I did not feel the warm and fuzzy from Dr.Lin. You would think someone in this kind of profession would have more compassion. Definitely, over confident and I feel like he was more a sales person. If you are looking for donor eggs, this may be a place for you.  Respond

21/03/09 5 5 5 5 My husband and I had a very positive experience at Dr. Lin's clinic. We feel we received excellent care. He and his staff were always available to us. Dr. Lin always returned our calls himself and always kept us updated on our progress. My cycle went very smoothly. I wish we had found Dr. Lin earlier! We had failed a cycle at another clinic--we left that clinic because we felt we needed better, more personalized care. That is exactly what we found with Dr. Lin and his staff.  Respond

24/11/08 5 5 5 5 The first fertility doctor's office I went to, I saw the doctor for five minutes. I have failed multiple IVF tries somewhere else, and did not know any better because my primary doctor told me to go there! Don't BLINDLY trust your primary doctor - they don't necessarily know! Compare for yourself! I wish I had known better! Dr. Lin's practice was the best. Dr. Lin's staff was always smily, they were very patient, they listened to me go on and on about my infertility rap sheet. When I freaked out about some bleeding, I called Dr. Lin directly on his cell phone! The staff seemed very busy but I didn't have to wait long for each visit. Overall I felt they were very organized, and genuinely CARED about getting me pregnant. They even offered me a refund plan as a choice. I didn't get a refund tho because I got pregnant!!! (even if I didn't, I would still recommend them.)  Respond

17/07/08 5 5 5 5 Our friends highly recommended Dr lin to us because they were his patients, and they compared quite a few doctors over the years. We thought we would be disappointed because usually if you expect a lot, you end up being disappointed. However, we were actually still impressed. We really liked the staff because they were always good listeners, and they were very supportive. Whenever we called the office, we ALWAYS got a hold of someone, and it never went to voicemail. We thought that was such great patient service. Dr Lin gave us our chances and choices, and explained everything in detail. He was always very calm and very hopeful. The office seemed very busy, but he spent a lot of time with us. The end result: We got pregnant! I hope this feedback is helpful for those of you looking for a great fertility doctor. It's now our turn to pass it on.  Respond
