What Dr. Linn’s Patients Say

Dr. Linn is extremely thorough, easy to talk to, and answered all my questions patiently. He assessed my issue, had me take X-rays right there quickly, and came up with a plan for treatment. He's a very caring doctor. His staff was friendly and competent. I felt like I was in excellent hands. Highly recommend! – Bonnie C.
