What do patients have to say about you?

"I’ve wanted cosmetic rhinoplasty for as long as I can remember. In March, I finally had surgery. I had researched surgeons in the Boston area and chose Dr. Lin based on the patient reviews I read on this site, and I am so glad I did. Dr. Lin was very thorough in all of my appointments with him, answered all of my questions in depth (no matter how trivial my concern), and explained the procedure to me from start to finish so that I understood every step of the process. His staff was also extremely professional and courteous, and someone always responded promptly to my inquiries."

"Dr. Lin is an incredibly conscientious, kind, attentive doctor. He listened to all of my concerns and never made me feel like any question was something silly. He was happy to provide me with multiple projection photos of my nose and met with me multiple times to ensure that I had the best possible result. On the day of the surgery, he helped me remain calm and eased my fears, and the surgery went perfectly and ended up being exactly what I wanted. He was able to clearly explain all possible consequences and things to expect during and after surgery, and the surgery healed almost 100% completely after a week. I had very little bruising and never needed to take any strong pain medicine because he did such a good job. He made sure to be up front with me about the amount of time it would take for all of the swelling to go down and was also up front regarding cost. I am absolutely thrilled with his work and would highly recommend him to anybody."
