Dr. Linn pays wonderful attention to my whole health. She has recently discovered a health concern we need to deal with. In talking with me she gave me several options. I appreciated that level of trust.

I moved to the Executive/Concierge Health program to continue having Dr Linn as my PCP. She is no doubt one of the sharpest, most caring, and most attentive physicians at VUMC. She listens carefully to you and actually converses with you about your particular health issue. She is the ideal physician.
