Helping People We’re Caring For – Terence Lin, M.D.

Posted on Mar 7, 2012

Cardiologist Terence Lin, M.D., finds it most rewarding when his patients tell him that they were able to go on vacation, to their child’s graduation or play with their grandchildren again because of the care they received from him.

“We’re fortunate to have the world’s best technology at our disposal,” says Dr. Lin, who works at PAMF’s Dublin and Fremont Centers. “Yet, we shouldn’t just use it because we can, but rather because it helps the person we’re taking care of.”

He feels he has really made a difference for his patients when their illness or disease does not become their life.

“When you think about what you want from your doctor, I think you want somebody who makes you well enough to live your life,” says Dr. Lin in this video, which is part of a series highlighting the diverse voices of PAMF physicians.
