- Anonymous, PatientTraining with Dr. Heather Lin at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, for our Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship was an amazing experience. She is super organized in her work, she is playful with the kids, and very professional with parents. She is a very supportive colleague, works well in a team atmosphere, and she is super-duper intelligent. Based on my experience working with her, I would trust her to treat my own children and family members, and would highly recommend her to families that need a child and adolescent psychiatrist.
