Ratings for Dr. Richie L. Lin
Saw Lin for a little over a year. I was very impressed with his intellect and bedside manner. He saw a small mole that a previous Dr had missed. He decided to remove it a year later and get a biopsy. It was precancerous. On a followup I had some bumps under my arms and had told him I was previously treated with a 7 day course of antibiotics for possible MRSA. He said it looked like contact dermatitis or something like that. Gave me a steroid and said it would take two weeks to clear it out. Two days later it got worse and became painful. I called the office and told them and they said the cream didn't kick in yet. Twenty four hours went by and it was worse. I called again and they blew me off again. Went to Overlook that night and it was MRSA. I had to have 4/5 of the bumps which had grown in size lanced, squeezed and filled with something to keep them open so they could drain out pus. I started a bunch of antibiotics and that night caught the chills pretty bad. I almost called an ambulance to take me back to the hospital. Luckily I felt improvement as the night progressed. I liked this Dr and I felt he was competent in one area but failed me in another. I haven't been back to see him. I am not saying he is a bad Dr. I am not giving 1 star but I had a scary experience because he couldn't recognize something especially when I gave him the biggest clue. I have been trying others and haven't found one I completely trust yet. Maybe I never will.
Dr. Lin has a good bedside manner. Staff is very helpful and polite. The office is clean and well kept. My only complain is he does not listen to my concerns. He offered no solution to my problem. Basically told me there's nothing wrong with me.
This office is the best. I went to another office and it was like night and day. They were efficient, the front desk stuff you deal with was as painless as possible, Dr. Lin actually took some time to examine me and address my problem. Def recommend.
