Fertility Doctor of the Month: James P. Lin, M.D.
Dr. James Lin is a third generation physician, following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps. He believes a successful career is the result of passion (“I am the most passionate physician anyone will ever meet!”), dedication and compassion. In addition, he believes that as a physician he must treat others as he would like to be treated. “It is essential to give every patient ample time during their visit, to listen to the reason for their visit, and to do a detailed history and physical before providing informed consent (including all the risks, benefits, and alternatives) of any indicated treatment plan,” Lin says.
Lin also acknowledges his team for his clinics success; he describes them as highly skilled, compassionate and altruistic.
FertilityAuthority is pleased to recognize Dr. Lin as Doctor of the Month.
A Progressive Fertility Practice
The ability to pick the best normal embryo for an elective single embryo transfer, to reduce maternal and perinatal complications is now more realistic than it has ever been, Lin says.
He is an advocate of frozen embryo transfer. He explains that if following controlled ovarian stimulation, quality embryos are produced, undergo vitrification and genetic testing, and normal embryos are transferred, the frozen embryo transfer will yield a 75% to 95% pregnancy rate regardless of the patient’s age. “I realize having a baby is a 0% to a 100% proposition, but the field has come a long way now,” Lin says.
“We are also actively helping cancer patients and other women to freeze their eggs to preserve their reproductive potential,” he adds
His practice offers payment plans – he believes all fertility centers should, and he emphasizes the importance of providing education for all potential patients.
Reproductive Fertility Center is celebrating its 10th anniversary at the Irvine Location this year. (The Center has four locations: Irvine, Alhambra, Riverside and Diamond Bar) By July a new non-profit website will debut featuring an embryo donation registry match and an egg donation and surrogacy concierge service.
Lin is married with two sons and two daughters, and the family has four dogs and a rabbit. “Being a father, and seeing firsthand the happiness my family brings me on a daily basis makes me want to work harder so that every patient I meet can have that same experience of happiness,” Lin says
“Patients are part of the family, as is each and every staff member. We've created an environment that is very welcoming for everyone from all over the world. Every patient feels like they are a part of us. In a sense, they are and will always be. It is a privilege to do what we do.”
