If I could give him zero stars, I would. He's rude, abrupt, and doesn't take the time to explain what he's doing or what's wrong before he starts shoving instruments in your nose or peeling off your ear. I've been to other ENTs since and none of them were so brutal with their inspections. If you try to ask questions or suggest that the problem isn't fixed, he condescendingly says, "This is it/all" and rushes you out of the office. His office is run-down and dirty. He, as a doctor, is disorganized and messy. His glove box was empty, and he had no idea where to find another box! He told me to get CTs done, but is also "unable" to get pre-authorizations for them and told me to get them myself or have my PCP do it. That is very much not how pre-authorizations are acquired. Seeing him was a total waste of time and a painful experience of what to not tolerate from a doctor.

Dr. Lin came to my rescue after seeing another ENT Doctor who did nothing to help and in fact, made my problem worse. Left that doctor never to return. Dr. Lin was very compassionate and his first treatment relieved my pain almost immediately. I was completely pain free after the third visit and my hearing restored. I have tried two other ENTs before Dr. Lin and would never go back to what I would consider quacks. Dr. Lin knows what he is doing. I highly recommend Dr. Lin.

He is a great doctor. I have visited him several times and he has always been very patient explaining everything unlike many other doctors. Before coming to him I have gone to 8 other ENTs and so far he is the best one that I have found. He understands the problem and recommends the solution accordingly. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a qualified and a genuine honest doctor who is interested in your well being.

Unprofessional. Does not use gloves. Instruments look unsanitary, I'm not sure if they were sterilized.

Extremely knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. A doctor with an expert sense of diagnosis. But his personal and compassionate treatment of you as a person is what sets him apart from the other non-caring so called doctors in today's world. You can get an appointment with him very quickly which is also very important when you are sick. I love Dr.Lin and his office staff.

Dr. Lin was not just approachable, but extremely patient with his 2-year-old patient. He made an otherwise stressful situation extremely comfortable and took the time to explain the options to me. I would have no reservations recommending him to anyone.
