I am very pleased with the results of my procedure with Dr. Lin. From the very start, he answered all of my questions and was easy to communicate with. I felt very comfortable and safe in his hands, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, kind, and warm doctor.

I had Dr. Lin for two different cosmetic procedures and I would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone who is looking into getting cosmetics done. From the very beginning it was an incredible experience. He was always very helpful and patient in answering all the questions I asked him (there was over 30!) and he is great at making you feel comfortable and heard. One of the things I loved about him is he doesn't sugarcoat things to you and explains everything in as many different ways as you need so you fully understand everything. He gives you the best advice so that you may have the best possible outcomes. He checks in with you many times before surgery to make sure you are feeling good about your decision and is always reachable to you. The day of surgery went so smoothly. He has the very best team that takes care of everything from the IVs to placing the marks so that you are the least stressed as possible. I had no complications and I am in love with the results. I am in awe everyday with my new body and it is all thanks to Dr. Lin!

I am writing this letter as a follow up to my daughter, Angela’s, Rhinoplasty and deviated septum surgery in August. Knowing that you have so many patients, I will try to familiarize you with her situation. She had, at this point in time, just completed her freshman year in college and was about to transfer to San Francisco. She came to you primarily to have nose surgery. As a parent, I always believed that my daughter was a beautiful young woman. However, my husband and I supported her in her decision to have her nose “fixed”. She had a minor bump and had been the subject of bullying in high school and middle school because of her nose. As bright and as talented as my daughter was, her confidence in her appearance and in other aspects of her life had been compromised. She had a very successful surgery at your gifted hands. You were able to repair her deviated septum but, more importantly, you were able to shave down the bump and sculpt her nose. What a beautiful job! She just graduated, Cum-Laude, from college with a degree in Public Relations/Political Science. She is staying in San Francisco and has a job with a communications firm. I recently asked her what professor made the biggest impact on her college career and she quickly replied that, “It wasn’t a professor; it was Dr. Lin”. She went on to tell me in a mother/daughter conversation that Dr. Lin “made me realize that I wasn’t ugly”. This comment tugged at my heartstrings, but I wanted you to know that you were directly responsible for restoring her confidence in herself. We are very proud of her as she begins her career. She is a happy, vibrant, and accomplished young woman. You were a huge part of her success! Hope that all in well with you. Enclosed is a picture of her at her graduation. Thank you for your part in her happiness! Thank you so very much for your brilliant work!

I just wanted to extend my sincere thanks for the compassionate and skillful care you-and your team-have provided my spouse during her nose reconstruction. I have watched her regain her confidence, and spirit, with each healing day that passes. It is thanks to your skill that she did not have to go through the forehead flap procedure, and thanks to you that she is healing beautifully! Your caring and gentle nature transformed her nervousness and uncertainty into courage and confidence. Thank you for being who you are and doing what you do!

My visit to you on July 14 turned out to be bittersweet! I am thrilled at how well my nose healed – however, every time I visited your office it was a shot in the arm. You and your staff could not have been more supportive and encouraging. I will be forever grateful.

During my last two visits with you, there was so much for me to process with my new nose, that I never thanked you properly for all that you did. I could not be happier with the results. For the first time, I can breathe and the cosmetic outcome is perfection. You cannot see the suture line! Your work is impeccable. I am very grateful to you, and it will be a pleasure to recommend you to my friends and colleagues.

Dear Dr. Lin,
I really appreciate the time and effort you took into making my nose surgery a success. You made me feel so comfortable and I couldn’t be happier with my results! Thank you for helping me get my confidence back. You are truly an incredible doctor.

Thank you so much for the great work you did on my breast reduction. I can’t tell you how much happier (not to mention easier) my life is now, and I have you to thank. I have been recommending you to everyone who asks, and I will continue to do so. Keep up the great work!

When I took off the bandages and the surgical bra and looked in the mirror, for the first time since my mastectomy cancer was not looking back at me. Thank you so much. I am proud and always have been to be a cancer survivor. It is like a badge of honor that reminds me when I doubt myself I can do whatever I have to. However before the surgery I didn’t feel like I looked the same. Not only am I proud to say I am a breast cancer survivor, but I also thanks to you look better than I did before. May God bless you and your family. Please enjoy the cookies that my daughter and I made. Thanks again.

Just wanted to drop a quick line to tell you how grateful I am for your recently performed surgery. I feel fantastic, look awesome and only wish I had done it sooner. A-One service by all. Thank you so much. I am forever grateful.

I’m so grateful for all you’ve done for me this year – thank you. Merry Christmas!

I had a very positive experience with Dr. Lin and his staff. He had a meticulous attention to detail and took the extra time to answer my questions. Most importantly I was very satisfied with my end result! I would highly recommend him to any family member or friend.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Lin and his staff. Not only his staff at the office at Shapiro but the staff at One Brookline Place where the surgeries are performed. I had THE best experience with every single person I met. They put all anxieties at ease immediately. Dr. Lin is so caring and so empathetic and truly a master at what he does. If you're considering having anything done, please please do yourself the favor of going with Dr. Lin and his team. I wish I could give more than five stars to be honest.

I had a fantastic experience with Dr Lin and his team. I had some apprehension and anxiety before starting the process of fixing my deviated septum, but once I met Dr Lin and his team, all apprehensions subsided. I was amazed that I had zero pain after surgery and was always able to get any questions answered timely and thoroughly. I am able to breath out of my nose for the first time in over 10 years. Overall, great experience.

The virtual course designed by Dr. Lin is very well structured and robust including readings, surgical videos, and quizzes along with lectures, case discussions and surgical video explanations. It covers all topics in Plastic Surgery very efficiently including wound healing, craniofacial and head and neck reconstruction, aesthetic surgery, hand surgery, upper and lower extremity surgery, breast reconstruction and gender affirming surgery. This is an excellent course that should be taken by anyone who wishes to enhance their knowledge in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and excel in achieving their goals for a career in Plastic Surgery. Dr. Lin is also an outstanding educator and provides an opportunity to have robust discussions and encourages students to ask any questions which helps in understanding the concepts very well. Most of all, Dr. Lin is very kind and motivating and takes out time to really get to know the students and provide them with the most valuable guidance.

Dr.Lin was a wonderful surgeon throughout my experience. He kept me informed prior to the procedure, during and after. Not only did he do a great job, the most important part of my journey was his availability after, when I had questions -one year or even today 8 years later. I deeply appreciate his understanding of my needs, and allowing me to be vulnerable.

I recently had a panniculectomy done then end of February with Dr. Lin. His beside manner, staff, and work have exceeded my expectations! Prior to surgery, the day of, and post op care the communication and level of comfort has been phenomenal. Right before heading into surgery Dr. Lin marked me up and said he would take good care of me and he did just that. Thank you for exceeding my expectations Dr. LIN I feel much more confident.

Another ENT at BIDMC referred me to Dr. Lin to help address issues breathing through my nose (deviated septum etc). Dr. Lin and his whole team have been great since day 1, I always felt listened to and they had the patience to explain the process the whole way. I did end up needing corrective surgery and Dr. Lin performed the surgery in early February. After just a few weeks I could already breath so much better and everything is healing well. I would highly recommend him and his team (all the residents, PAs and nurses were awesome). I also can't say enough about the kindness of the nurses at Baptist where the surgery took place.

Dr. Lin and his staff were wonderful. Everyone was very knowledgeable and friendly and my results were indicative of this. I was given all the necessary information upfront and felt very cared for and well looked after during the entire process. I’m thrilled with the end results and highly recommend Dr. Lin. I especially loved how many times he reached out to answer any questions and address any concerns.
