14/07/13 3 3 5 5 Reception staff may not smile very much but they saved me money by recommending I go to RCH for some blood work that the bio-med lab was going to charge me for. Wait times seem a bit long but Dr Lin is always very thorough with me, answering any and all of my questions. She's even called me from the office after 8pm to answer a question and discuss my treatment options.  Respond

13/05/13 2 4 4 5 I find Dr linn to be knowledgeable and thorough. She keeps detailed notes and is food about sending you for testing. I went for a procedure with her at RCH and it was over a couple hours behind schedule and it was distressing and felt the patient that was late that caused the lateness for me should have been cancelled or done after me. I was spoken to gruffly and never apologized to or explained to the story. Another time I felt sedation should have been stronger. I have never received enough pain killer for my stomache. I find the office staff are quite hostile, grumpy miserable and unhelpful. I think Dr linn is good but very hard to access, but has done phone appointnents but not always. Because the staff are so rude it is difficult to know if your messages get through but scared to call and check as there is no response and conditions and pain remain.  Respond

10/05/13 5 5 5 5 I had a full, UNSEDATED (my choice) colonoscopy with Dr Linn a week ago...she was very kind and professional. This was my first meeting with Dr Linn - if I'll ever need this procedure another time I will for sure ask for her again. Many thanks to you doctor and your AWESOME nursing team @ RCH GI!  Respond

05/12/12 4 2 1 2 I have had to go to Dr Linn because my other doctor moved :( I have had nothing but bad experiences with this doctor. From the get go her bedside manner is atrocious. She is condescending and unhelpful. After a colonoscopy I was unable to see her for a follow up until a few days after due to a death in the family and when she confronted me on that she was very condescending and spoke to me in such a way that made me feel like a child. Another time during an examination she asked me if I smoked and I said, "No, never." And she looked at me skeptically and said,"Oh really? Are you sure? Ever?" like I was lying or something. I think the way she speaks to her patients are completely unprofessional. She needs a lesson in humanity.  Respond

01/10/12 1 3 2 4 Dr. Lin's reception staff could use some training on reception etiquette such as improving politeness and courtesy. The staff rarely smile and don't make you feel welcomed. They have made errors on booking/rescheduling appointments and lost prescription requests from pharmacies which were unnecessary inconveniences.

29/05/12 3 5 4 5 I am a current patient. I had a very long wait before I got to see her but she has been very helpful. She keeps very detailed notes as my issues are ongoing and complicated. I am happy to have had phone appointments which, really save time and I am sure, money. I was dissapointed to not have pain relief pills rather getting slow working medication that did not seem to help. I am happy with the constant tests I end up getting, trying to get to the 'bottom' of the problems.(ha ha) I find Dr Linn knowledgeable, helpful and caring. I don't find most of the secretaries friendly at all and could perhaps even use some discipline. It's as if their face would break if they smile. A couple are quite crabby and seem very unhappy there. Overall, I am happy with Dr Linn and her willingness to help.  Respond

18/11/11 2 5 5 5 I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Lin.She took a very thorough history, sent me for BW, booked hospital tests, and now I await her diagnosis. On a sad note: I have encountered many problems with the staff.  Respond

26/10/11 4 5 5 5 I had a very large polyp removed by Dr. Linn a couple of days ago. Dr. Linn is professional, caring and doesn't waste time with constant office appointments. In fact, I have yet to be to her office ....all of the consults were right in the hospital before the tests. I am thankful to have found her. I also was very pleased with the care at the Royal Columbian Hospital where she works from.  Respond

03/12/09 4 3 5 5 I was referred to Dr Lin after Dr Binder my other gastro specialist died in a car accident. I found after a very long wait, that she was patient, answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable and confident in her skills. I now understood why the long wait, she takes time with her patients and for me that makes her a doctor worth keeping. After my procedure, I was given discharge instructions and also a little picture of what was done, so I could research what she found, and also she changed my meds and increased dosages. I felt I left the hospital forwarned and forarmed to research my condition and deal with it. I thank her for taking the time to do that.  Respond

25/06/09 5 5 5 5 Due to my GP sending me to her we were able to find a solution to my problem, while in the testing room. Dr Lin has personal contacted me at home about a serious condition and ordered medication right away for me to pick ASP.She returned my call because of my fear regarding a certian procedure. I know I have to be the advocate for my health, go in with all my syptoms, they can not read anyones mind.  Respond

27/01/09 3 4 1 2 I had a terrible experience with this doctor. I had been suffering for ages and had been brushed off by her in the past. I finally went back and insisted on some help, she put me through another colonoscopy and then disappeared. A nurse found me in the recovery area and told me they didn't find anything, but that I should eat more fiber! I freaked out a little and said I needed more help than that. The nurse went to find Dr. Lin and just came back again and said she couldn't do anything else for me. I am still having the same problems and have nothing to help or relieve my symptoms. As far as talking to her, I found her to be really uninterested and not particularly friendly. I wish I hadn't ever seen her, I felt worse and helpless after that experience.  Respond

07/10/08 5 2 1 1 Dr. Linn is friendly but appears to be unknowledgeable and doesnt seem overly interested in finding solutions to a rare condition, she passes the buck in her own field  Respond
