What People Say About Dr. Fred Lin, MD

I saw Dr. Lin for sleep apnea relief - specifically the implantation of the Inspire sleep apnea device. Dr. Lin was, from the start, very communicative about what the process and procedure would entail. At the beginning, it was very hard to reach his office - I had to be persistent to get an appointment. But once the process was started, he was a complete professional and very thorough with follow up after the procedure was completed - answering emails within minutes and great bedside manner.

Had a really good experience. Surgery went well and breathing thru my nose significantly better day in and day out.

I saw Dr. Lin to diagnoise the cause of cronic nasal congestion in my left sinus. During the appointment he answered all my questions and had a pleasant bed-side manner. He ordered a CT scan which I completed a week later. Two weeks later I had not heard bsack so I sent him an email using "My Chart" Mt. Sinais doctor/patient communication system. After 2 emails over a week and no response, I called his office a few times in the course of a week, again no response. Time to find another ENT.

Dr. Lin recently performed Septoplasty and sinus surgery on me. I can't say enough great things about Dr. Lin and his staff. The surgery went smoothly, Dr. Lin is informative and caring and his office is outstanding at scheduling follow-up appointments. I would instantly recommend Dr. Lin to any friend or family member.

I had to have a tonsillectomy, and I was really nervous because I heard that tonsillectomies are worst for adults. But when I walked into the operating room, Dr. Lin made me feel more comfortable, distracting me by asking me questions about school. The procedure went really smoothly, and I healed up in no time. I had minimal pain after the procedure. In his office, the wait time is very short & Dr. Lin is extremely friendly & patient. He explains everything clearly. Dr. Lin is the best!
