    Doctor Lin was very friendly and knowledgeable. I also liked how they are working on a transition program for youth moving to adult doctors

  • Nov 22, 2019

    Wonderful doctor, explained everything thoroughly and was genuinely interested in my wellbeing

  • Oct 15, 2019

    Let me know what was going on at every step

    Doernbechers is outstanding! Everyone is SO kind and patient. There is a volunteer on the surgery floor named Kay who is just about the sweetest, kindest lady on the planet. We were blown away to learn she volunteers her time. She is Heaven sent and Doernbechers is so lucky to have her! The doctors and staff were so sweet to us. We are incredibly fortunate to be able to go there ?

    The provider does not have time to see me every time I go for a visit with my son. She leaves the appointment early or she is unable to see you for more than a couple of minutes. He always has a meeting in somewhere else to be if he doesn't seem to have time for the appointment.

  • Aug 17, 2019

  • Jul 09, 2019

    Every person I encountered was amazing! The staff truly listen to parents, as well as, take care of parents while still maintaining entire focus on child! I’m very thankful for Jess and Megan who in pre-op took care of my child and me. Amazing team!

  • Jun 28, 2019

    I would recommend everything 100%.

  • Jun 10, 2019

    Very friendly, knowledgeable and easy to speak with.

  • Jun 06, 2019

    Very clear and helpful. Former angolan of action and really listened to us. Very kind and careful.

  • May 18, 2019

    The doctor was very pleasant and he was very patient. He asked the questions. He spoke to my son in addition to myself and he seemed to genuine as though he really cared and wanted to get to the root of the issue, which I really appreciate it. And he also shared some of the things that could be going on. So he made me feel reassured that he was knowledgeable on the subject matter and I felt that his bed side manners were very very good.

  • May 16, 2019

    So very attentive, caring and dedicated to the health of my son and solving his health issues.

  • May 16, 2019

    Dr. Lin is our hero. So very thorough & knowledgeable, provides counseling & options, sees the "big picture", answers all questions, is incredibly kind & patient.

  • May 04, 2019

    The provider was very nice. I really like the provider, would highly recommend him to our friends or family. Thank you.

  • May 04, 2019

    The doctor was amazing. He talked to us not at us, talked to or we can understand him. He was amazing and great with my child.

  • Apr 06, 2019

    Our experience with him overall is good. And maybe it was due to a shift change, but we didn't see him anymore during our stay or he didn't touch base with us. So we didn't have a whole lot of doctor contact.

  • Mar 27, 2019

    The surgery center was the BEST experience out of all previous procedures I have endured with my kids in Eugene. Every person was so amazing and focused on making sure my son AND myself were taken care of.

  • Mar 26, 2019

    Everyone we spoke to was friendly and helpful.

  • Feb 19, 2019

    Related well to both parent and child. Answered all questions thoroughly.

  • Feb 17, 2019

    Dr Lin was attentive and took the time to answer our questions thoroughly. I felt confident we were getting good care. We did have to wait until about 45 minutes after the scheduled start time of our appointment, which was tricky with a ten month old.

  • Feb 17, 2019

    Dr. Lin was great at communicating about the disease process, options and plan of care. I’d recommend him if my friends needed a specialist. My only complaint is that when we came in on [Redacted] 9th (our first appointment), we were denied care because we were 10 min late to the appointment yet on [Redacted] 14th the MD was 45 minutes late. Ironic no? Denying care when we waited 3 months for the first appointment is cruel in my opinion.

  • Feb 01, 2019

    He seemed to be concerned with my son and work to find a solution however we discussed an expedited surgery within a week or two and I am still waiting for a scheduling phone call due to misorganization. Someone was out sick,then I’ve had two scheduling phone all that didn’t realize the procedure was to be coordinated with another. I’m disappointed for my son who has been in pain this whole time.

  • Jan 26, 2019

    He was very thorough, thoughtful. My daughter appreciated him. He seemed incredibly intelligent, and we had an excellent experience.

  • Jan 20, 2019

    It was awesome and he was very friendly.

  • Jan 16, 2019

    My experience with Dr. Lin was outstanding. He gave us new possibilities into our daughter's health care with new ways to figure out what's going on with her health wise and giving us possibly new answers. He listened and was very thorough and did not rush. It was very, very helpful.

  • Jan 09, 2019

    Very friendly staff, on time. Dr. Lin listened to our concerns and provided food suggestions and support.
