Dr. Lin is an attending physician in general surgery at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, NJ, and Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, NJ. He is also a staff physician at Ocean Medical Center in Brick, NJ. In addition, Dr. Lin works at the Central Jersey Surgery Center in Eatontown, NJ.
Dr. Lin was born in San Francisco, CA, and received his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Davis. After graduating, he spent the next 2 years working as a transportation technician, pathology aide, and a physical therapist aide at a local hospital. The following 5 years were spent residing in Houston, TX, where he worked as a research technician for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Baylor College of Medicine. These 7 years proved to be a significant time in his life, for at no other point has he had to support himself independently and learn what it means to start from the ground up — a truly humbling experience.
He eventually matriculated and earned his medical school degree from the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science/The Chicago Medical School, then completed his residency training at Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. His ambition for gaining further skills in laparoscopic surgery was rewarded by completing a fellowship at the University Medical Center at Princeton, NJ. Dr. Lin resides locally with his wife Angela, who happens to be an obstetrician/gynecologist and two handsome sons, Kyler and Dylan.
