What Our Patients Say

Janet Lin, MD
5 Stars  Very pleased with Dr. Lin. So pleased that I continue to drive from DC to Rockville to see her over the many dermatologists closer to home. She is professional but also warm. She seems very knowledgeable and is also a good communicator, willing and able to take the time explain her diagnosis and proposed treatments. She provides samples of suggested treatment creams to try them out. And she put me in touch with a pharmacy that has filled her prescriptions at less than other pharmacies –
