Patient | October 5, 2018

I first saw Dr. Linn when she was a resident at VUMC and have been a patient of hers since she began practicing because I knew then she'd be an amazing doctor and that has remained true. Dr. Linn is a true asset to VMG!
Patient | September 21, 2018

Dr Linn never makes me feel rushed. She takes the time to listen and discuss problems with me. She is a very pleasant doctor. I trust her opinions.
Patient | September 12, 2018

On this visit, I saw a doctor in the practice who I had never seen before because my doctor didn't have any last minute openings. I have seen another doctor in the practice before when my primary care physician wasn't available and they were fine, but I really enjoyed seeing Dr. Linn. She was so kind and knowledgeable. I liked her so much that I would even consider switching my primary care physician to her! I really like my current PCP, but sometimes it is more comfortable sharing medical details with another woman. She showed genuine concern for my problem and didn't show any judgement when I told her that I wasn't even sure how I got the rash on on hands (i.e. I had no idea if it was poison ivy or something else).

This provider looked at information I brought her, noted issues other than the one I came in for and recommended follow up.
Patient | May 4, 2018

We have recommended Dr. Linn to our family. To us, Dr. Linn is an excellent doctor because she does not try to force one choice; she asks you what you think about taking a medication, getting a test, etc. This approach helps convey that your health choices and health care are a joint effort between the patient and the provider. She also cares enough to take time and make sure that you are getting the best care possible.
