Based upon my own experince, Dr. Lin is a very talented and skilled surgeon. He was also very easy and pleasant to work with. He has a calm adn reassuring manner about him and encouraged input from me which I appreciated. I would have no hesitaiton to return to Dr. Lin for future procedures and can highly recommend him! I came to appreciate that rhinoplasty to be one of the most difficult to perform successfully and focused on finding the best rhinolasty surgeons, and the results prove it.

My experience with Dr. Lin was truly amazing. From the moment I met him, I knew that he was the right surgeon for me. He is by far the nicest, most approachable and down to earth surgeon I have ever met. He is kind, caring, humble, takes the time to listen, and explains everything. I received great care end to end (consultation to surgery and followup). He does wonderful work-I couldn't be happier with the results and would not trust my face/nose to anyone else! I highly recommend him!

I researched many doctors in the Boston area before selecting Dr. Lin. I was incredibly pleased with my choice.Dr. Lin answered my parents' and my questions patiently and delivered above and beyond expectations. He was very straightforward and realistic as to what the process entailed, including customized detail on how he would fix my particular nose injury. He was also very focused on ensuring that the operation didn't affect breathing. His demeanor is reassuring and he has the 'care' factor

For many years, prior to surgery in October 2015, I am not sure if I was born with a deviated septum or if it was a result of playing sports- I never opted for surgery until it became nearly impossible to breathe and at the same time my nostril looked collapsed as well. Thankfully, I called Dr. Lin's office and I knew right away I could trust him to perform the surgery necessary to help me breathe better and repair my collapsed nostril.I am happy I can breathe again and my nose looks fantastic!

I had several procedures during a surgery for skin removal after massive weight loss (100+#). My initial surgeon, himself a highly regarded board certified surgeon, recommended Dr. Lin perform the interior thigh reduction/lift. The results - even at six weeks post op-- bear that out. I recommend Dr. Lin with the highest regard and without reservation for his surgical skills and his ability to connect and to communicate with his patients. For me, both were necessary to have the best outcome!

I want to start off by saying that Dr. Samuel Lin is an extremely talented surgeon and a remarkable human being. I broke my nose during my freshman year of college (playing sports). As a result of this injury, I had difficulty breathing -- especially during the wintertime. Dr. Lin was the second surgeon I reached out to regarding my nose. After my initial appointment with Dr. Lin, I knew that I was in good hands. I actually felt like he cared about my breathing problem and wanted to fix it!

2 hr wait. Met with him after referral. He spent 3 minutes with me. Upon reviewing my medical chart after, he wrote wrong notes on me (smoker, i never smoked, that i used nasalstrips, never, and he called me sev times , he didnt not, took 3 wks to return calls). As a clinician and patient, one of worst I have ever seen. NOt a quality visit, never took notes, and clearly could not remember our visit, as my office note in the chart indicated. Would not go back, nor refer my pts or family to him.

Dr. Lin performed facial plastic surgery after I had chemo and radiation for esophageal cancer and during the surgery he removed scar tissue in my neck. I am now much more comfortable and can speak normally again.
I recently had a breast reduction and Dr. Lin was terrific! He answered all my questions and let me know exactly what he was going going to do. The results came out amazing and I would recommend him to anyone having breast surgery.
