Dr. Lin - when she was available to meet - always took time and care. The issue is that she's not always available and care gets handed around to other doctor's, and then it's your responsibility as the patient to make sure everyone's on the same page. Being stressed doesn't help this, and sometimes details can get lost...Each doctor has their own style of treatment - Dr. Lin's is very conservative but she explains everything that's going on and the risks of alternate courses of treatment...

How was your experience with Li-Shei Lin at Kaiser Permanente SoCal?
She's very thorough. As I mentioned in another section, when your care gets handed off to another doctor that's when issues occur. Each doctor has their own style of treatment - Dr. Lin's is very conservative but she explains everything that's going on and the risks of alternate courses of treatment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Li-Shei Lin at Kaiser Permanente SoCal?
Make sure you get each appointment with her or Dr. Yoo.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Li-Shei Lin at Kaiser Permanente SoCal?
Dr. Lin - when she was available to meet - always took time and care. The issue is that she's not always available and care gets handed around to other doctor's, and then it's your responsibility as the patient to make sure everyone's on the same page. Being stressed doesn't help this, and sometimes details can get lost.
Describe the protocols Li-Shei Lin used in your cycles at Kaiser Permanente SoCal and their degree of success.
Because of my PCOS they were very light to start with IUI injectables, but when I pushed back they were receptive to upping dosage and explaining why (though that took several calls and messages to get a call back).
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The ladies in the office are really great in person and over the phone they're helpful. I've had a few times where I've had to explain a situation that's long and reception needed to condense my message - details get lost, so I try to boil down the issue and resolution needed. Not always easy when you're dealing with all the hormones/high stakes.
Describe your experience with Kaiser Permanente SoCal.
Limited office hours especially on the weekends. Staff is friendly and wants to be helpful. Sometimes details get lost.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Li-Shei Lin at Kaiser Permanente SoCal.
$20 copay (with very good health insurance coverage)

Dr Lin was very helpful in diagnosing my pcos, where other doctors had been unable to do so. She has always been kind and helpful. Even though we have not had success in getting pregnant with Dr Lin, I am so grateful that I was able to be diagnosed and taken seriously.... We started out with just Clomid. We added iui after a couple cycles because it was covered and Dr Lin thought it would improve our chances.... Ask questions and be upfront about your health outside of your fertility

We started out with just Clomid. We added iui after a couple cycles because it was covered and Dr Lin thought it would improve our chances.
Describe your experience with Kaiser Permanente SoCal.
The clinic had great communication and was prompt at returning calls and emails. A weakness is that they are only open Monday through Friday, with the exception of monitoring on Saturdays, only on injectables cycles. So it was harder to schedule iui and monitoring.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Li-Shei Lin at Kaiser Permanente SoCal.
I had a $30 copay per visit and medications were between $15-35.
