Dr. Linster says no two days in the office are the same and he likes that. He especially enjoys the challenging combination of interpreting scientific data and social interaction when it comes to caring for his patients. His approach to patient care includes cooperative decision-making. Originally from Illinois, Dr. Linster lived in Southern California and Oregon before moving to North Carolina in 1998. He is married and has two sons. Outside the office, Dr. Linster enjoys playing disc golf, mountain biking and going on family vacations.
