Bay Area Gynecology Oncology
Dr. Jeff F. Lin is a board-certified gynecologic oncologist and come from a family of strong, caring, resilient women – from his mother who didn’t know much English but immigrated with his sister and himself to southern California for their better future, to his aunt Jennifer who started with a college degree and a passion, and built a chain of computer stores, to his aunt Judy whose passion for dance and the arts they thought had taken a backseat to his uncle’s career in the oil refineries in Oklahoma but in fact was able to flourish as a tai chi instructor and introduced tai chi to a brand new population. They serve as his foundation and as a gynecologic oncologist he often sees the same strength, resilience and drive in his patients, whether it’s the elderly patient who is fighting ovarian cancer and at the same time tending to her partner’s dementia, or the young mother scheduling her surgery around the time of her kid’s school breaks, or the mid-life executive managing to keep it all together. He believes that his patients want to do the best for themselves and their loved ones and that his role should be a guide in offering (or making available the knowledge for referral) and short-listing the treatments available to them.

“When my father was diagnosed with brain cancer, I did a great deal of research on treatment and was looking everywhere to find the best doctors and treatment facilities I could. We came to Cancer Care Institute for my dad’s radiation treatments because of their new facility and advanced technology, but we stayed for the amazing attitude and friendship of the staff. The fact that my father looked forward to going there every day as he was greeted with open arms made the process much easier on us, and I am a firm believer that a positive state of mind is much more effective in curing any illness than medication, and that is what I found at CCI more than anywhere else. ” -Iman Oskoorouchi
