I strive to provide the highest standard of care that is delivered with kindness and compassion. I believe that communication is very important in a physician and patient relationship. I always take the time to discuss all options with my patients in order to find the most appropriate treatment plan for their diagnosis. I want to give them the tools they need to make an informed decision, but also help guide them through this journey.
When she’s not treating patients, Dr. Lin-Duffy enjoys spending time with her daughter, her husband and their two Labradors. They enjoy hiking at Red Rock and Valley of Fire. She was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan and speaks fluent Taiwanese and Mandarin.
