Dr. Kenneth Lin, MD
Restoring your quality of life is a collaborative effort. By understanding you, your lifestyle and the problems you are experiencing I can better tailor my treatment recommendations, both surgical and non-surgical, to you as an individual. Equally important, your understanding of the problem and the treatment plan we’ve decided upon allows for the best outcome possible.
