Great experience. Dr. Lin is curious, insightful, and intelligent. I really felt he was interested in the origin of my problem. He took a generous amount of time to talk with me about possible ways to address the condition. Much appreciated! Great experience. Dr. Lin is curious, insightful, and intelligent.

I am very impressed by Dr. Lin and his office. He is incredible. He has a wonderful manner and extensive knowledge. His staff is competent and courteous. Dr. Lin is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. He was an excellent listener and thorough diagnostician. He knew all of the information I had provided on my paperwork regarding why I was there to see him when he came into the room. He saw me right on time, and then spent just the right amount of time with me. I feel Dr. Lin is extremely well versed on the latest research and treatments in his field. I would highly recommend him! Dr Lin is so personable, knowledgeable, and kind. He gave me a ton of options and was up front and honest. If you're looking for an ENT, he's the one to check out! It was very pleasant to work with him. It was for small little thing but Dr. Lin took time to explain how to treat and prevent the symptom. Plus all his staffs had kind smiling faces and try hard to be helpful. Thank you Dr. Lin and UCI Medical Center. Your efforts are making your patients' life little brighter.
