New York, NY |
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!
