Dr. Steven Lin and his entire staff are as professional as they come. Dr. Lin is an excellent communicator, has amazing bedside manner, and is razor sharp precise as a surgeon. I couldn’t have been happier with the way I was treated, and I am so pleased to recommend him to anyone who has orthopedic needs.

Highly recommend Dr. Lin for any orthopedic related problems! Working with him, I always hear his patients comment on how thoroughly he explains to them, they are all happy that Dr. Lin always spends time with them and answers all their questions & concerns. Many have introduced their family members to see Dr. Lin because they trust in him to take care of their important ones!

Took my brother in to see Dr. Lin after he fell hard and twisted his ankle badly. Very professional and puts you at ease. Would highly recommend him.

Dr. Lin gave me an injection on my left trigger thumb and it worked and after just one week, I was completely healed. Dr. Lin is superb!

I am so fortunate to have come across an excellent doctor who takes a great care of his patients, sets his fees so low and keeps himself available at the times when other doctors are out on "vacation".

I was in a motorcycle accident last summer and was told that there was no fracture in my wrist by the hospital radiologist. Seeking a second opinion, I had Dr. Lin examine the X-rays, and he found a distal fracture of my scaphoid. He then treated my injury, and I have since healed with no pain or setbacks to my gym routine.

Dr. Lin was very understanding and supportive to all my concerns and anxiety before surgery and through the follow up appointments.
I highly recommend him for orthopedic issues.
Of course, Ms. Lien Morning is an excellent assistant, always there to assist his patients.
Thank you to both.

Dr. Lin was an absolute lifesaver for me! I am a five time competitor on American Ninja Warrior (Chess Ninja) and I found myself less than 3 months away from competition for Season 11 LA Regionals with a broken middle metacarpal on my left hand. I had very low hopes for being able to compete, but still wanted to try.

Dr. Lin was able to perform surgery on my left hand that enabled me to get back to training only 3 weeks after the surgery, and enabled me to move my fingers the day after surgery! I was able to use this time to recover, train, and obtain success on the show surpassing any previous level! I would not have been able to climb up the mega wall, continue on to City Finals, or do anything else this season that I'm not allowed to spoil yet. Needless to say, I'm very happy with my experience with Dr. Lin.

He and his staff are very knowledgeable, professional, and work to give the upmost quality of care. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Lin for your related medical needs.

I had broken my wrist in three places on a business trip in Tokyo. I flew home immediately and had the good fortune to have been referred to Dr. Lin. What had started off as a scary accident, turned into one of my best medical experiences ever. Dr. Lin and his staff were thoroughly professional and clearly explained my surgery and treatment. They were efficient, yet they took the time to make sure I understood all the steps involved. My wrist fully healed faster than I expected. I would highly recommend Dr. Lin without any hesitation.
