From the Provider

“Becoming a parent has helped me connect with my patients on a different level. I have a deeper appreciation of how the stories of each person’s life and their values shape their choices. My goal is to be a resource and a guide for whatever my patients are experiencing and their decision making process. Helping them navigate their health and wellbeing over time is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.”

About the Provider

Dr. Lin’s goal in working with her patients is to validate what they’re experiencing physically, as well as what they’re going through emotionally. In addition to understanding and empathy, she seeks to bring a clear, common sense medical perspective to help each person weigh their options and determine their own best path forward. Her areas of focus and expertise include emotional wellness, family planning and support, trauma informed care, vulvar health and minimally invasive surgery. She is also a North American Menopause Society Certified Menopause Practitioner.

Dr. Lin and her husband have three children. In her spare time, she volunteers at school and enjoys baking, knitting, crocheting and reading. She played rugby for eight years during college and medical school. These days, Dr. Lin enjoys being outside and active—but looks forward to playing rugby again someday!

    Dr. Jennifer Lin and her entire team are a complete joy to have as a OB/GYN team. I know that sounds like a weird thing to say about 'lady business' doctors....but IT'S TRUE!! Dr. Lin and her staff were warm(&kind), great listeners, and my life-changing surgery was performed in a safe & timely manner. Dr. Lin, without question, gave me my quality of life back. I couldn't be more grateful.

    Is there anything else you would like to share about your experience with your provider?

    Dr Lin is an amazing doctor. She listens, she is respectful, kind and empathetic. She values my beliefs and my concerns with my health. She takes time to listen to me, help me understand what I am going through and tries to make a good plan for me and my health. Concerned with me as a patient and person, it just another time slot to fill. I travel 1 hour to see her, as she moved to a new office, but the extra time outweighs anything else in having a good treatment and a fine doctor. I know there are other good doctors that could help, really the compassion and care I receive from Dr Lin is truly something that I appreciate and am thankful for.
