Dr. Linder always made me feel extremely comfortable throughout my whole appointment. Dr. Linder listened attentively to me and he validated my concerns. My appointment wasn't rushed at all as he took his time with me, encouraged all of my questions about my condition, and answered each of them. I am so glad Dr. Linder is my doctor as I feel I am finally in the "right hands" and have a treatment plan in place.

I recommend him often. And her is well respected in the area, as I learned from the tech at my ultrasound. She indicated that everyone thinks very highly of Dr Linder and that he provides excellent care.

Dr. Linder is the best doctor I've ever had. He listens and actually cares about what I have to say. He cares about my comfort during the appointment and works to minimize any discomfort I may have. He makes sure I always understand what he's saying and gives me plenty of opportunities to ask questions. I never feel rushed. In addition to being very nice and empathetic, he is a great doctor and the only one who ever properly diagnosed and resolved a major gynecological issue I've had for over 10 years. Dr. Linder is actually one of the reasons why I have stayed in Rochester. I couldn't picture a better doctor if I tried.

Dr. Linder is my favorite provider I've seen at UR since I became a patient in medical system here. He counters my anxiety with calm, compassionate, and rational answers. I would recommend him in an instanrbb

Dr. Linder is a wonderful doctor. I wish he could be cloned as a PCP!

Jun 07, 2023


Dr. Linder is wonderful and very easy to talk to. He is a good listener and I feel comfortable and confident being his pt. I value his opinions on my overall health, not just GYN specific issues.

May 28, 2023


He ALWAYS comes to the appointment prepared! He even has a note with information, questions/concerns from last appointments. This is impressive to me. He gas really reviewed my records prior.

May 04, 2023


Dr. Linder was very thorough and I have always appreciated his empathetic and compassionate nature. I always leave appointments with him feeling at ease, heard, and informed.

Mar 28, 2023


He was great ! Very knowledgeable

Feb 24, 2023


Dr. Linder took time to ask about why I was there and what had happened with previous doctors and their recommendations as opposed to only relying on the notes in my chart.

Feb 20, 2023


My only problem with the provider was that he spoke extremely fast and I couldn't keep up with everything he was saying.

Feb 12, 2023


I appreciate that Dr. Linder is down to earth--he is practical and realistic in his approach. Very personable. I look forward to the yearly visit.

Feb 09, 2023


Best doctor I've ever had. He's very knowledgeable medically, can explain things well, cares about what I have to say, and is an empathetic listener. He is both intellectually and emotionally intelligent. I really really really appreciate being able to have him as my doctor.

He's the best doctor I've ever had, both in terms of his knowledge/expertise and his eagerness to actually listen to me and help me. I feel extremely lucky that he is my doctor.

Best doctor I've ever had.

Oct 19, 2022


Dr Linder is amazing. He spent time with me, was compassionate and helped me think through some difficult decisions that are effecting my overall physical and mental health because of course my CPTSD effects everything even how I process through the fog.

Oct 10, 2022


Dr. Linder is the kindest, most gentle, informative, validating, doctor I've ever seen, period. He is a great listener, and makes what is typically a women's least favorite annual appointment something I'm actually excited to go to. He's helped my quality of life increase significantly by informing be about the IC diet, and changing over my birth control to something that works the best for my body. I couldn't be happier to have confidence, faith, and comfort in my provider for such an intimate subject.

Oct 10, 2022


Dr. Linder is my absolute favorite physician in all of UR Medicine. He's always been compassionate, understanding, and kind.

Dr. Linder must be a very busy man, but he never seems to be in a hurry. When you are with him, he gives you his full attention, takes you seriously, is glad to see you, and really cares about your feelings - including apprehension.

Sep 20, 2022


I have already recommended Dr. Linder to two friends who, after hearing about the positive experience I had (and have always had there), are looking for a new doctor.

Sep 13, 2022


Always a good experience.

Sep 07, 2022


I was incredibly impressed with my experience. This is the first time I have seen this provider, and usually I feel uncomfortable seeing male health care providers but I felt very comfortable with this provider. He listened to my concerns, validated my experience, took time to explain what was going on and discussed the typical outcome for my problem. I felt like he wasn't rushing (even though I had been a last minute double booked appointment), I felt respected and I felt that he genuinely cared about providing a solution to my problem. Thank you!

Aug 21, 2022


I was extremely happy with this provider.

Jul 18, 2022


Dr. Linder is an awesome doctor and truly listens before he responds.

Jul 07, 2022


Dr. Linder is an excellent doctor. He is very knowledgeable about his area of expertise and good at explaining things on a level that is understandable. I would recommend him to anyone with a similar condition to mine. [...] I even went to [...] and they were not able to diagnose me as confidently as Dr. Linder.

Jun 28, 2022


Love Dr. Linder! So down to Earth, always listens to concerns and never rushes me.
