Dr. Lin was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. He left Hawaii and braved the cold weather while completing his undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He later returned to Hawaii where he attended the John A. Burns Medical School where he met his wife Yuree Nam and developed an interest in Ophthalmology, following local ophthalmologists and working at a vision clinic for Hawaii's underserved population. Yuree and Dr. Lin were blessed to have both matched at the University of Washington's residency program where they are currently enjoying their training. Dr. Lin aspires to practice academic ophthalmology and enjoys surfing, skiing, and eating all of the great food Seattle has to offer in his spare time.
