Wai Wai Lin, MD, is a board-certified endocrinologist.
From a very young age, Dr. Lin aspired to be a doctor so she could help relieve people’s suffering. As a medical student, she was fascinated by learning about the functional changes associated with a particular disease and how hormones can affect various organ systems. She knew that specializing in endocrinology was the right path for her.
The fact that many endocrine diseases are chronic means that Dr. Lin can develop long-term relationship with patients, one of the aspects she likes most about her field. She strives to understand each individual’s needs and help them fully understand their medical condition and know all available treatment options.
