Thank you for the terrific care you’ve provided me. Your calm demeanor, realistic approach was exactly what we needed in the early days of my diagnosis. The meticulous work that you performed leaves us forever in your debt. Your skills and those of your team are amazing! Best wishes to you and yours for a Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year.

The reason I want to write you this card is to thank you for all you’ve done for me, during this journey in my life. But now that I’ve started to write about my gratitude, I realize that I can’t really think of words that are sufficient to convey my thankfulness. This time has been so scary for me, and your compassion and kindness toward me has been so reassuring and soothing. I can’t even tell you how much it’s meant to me. The patience and good humor you displayed in reading my letters prior to my surgery….Obviously, I have control issues! Even though I’m the patient, and you are the doctor, you always make me feel that I’m part of the team. I’m sure that in this career of yours you have come to grasp an understanding of what a woman’s breasts can mean to her; they are a somewhat sacred part of her body and self. I don’t think I even understood this until I was faced with having mine removed, due to cancer. The option of reconstruction has been one beacon of hope; the only lighthouse guiding me to a port, while I weather this storm. It’s been rough, but to carry the metaphor forward, my ship is strong, and I thank God for your light! I know I’ll be stronger at the end of all this. But what would I have done without you and your staff? I don’t know. Considering I’m having my hysterectomy next week it’s been one assault after another on my womanhood! Because of you, I know I can look forward to a future, where I’ll be having some sense of my female identity restored to me. And someday this crisis will be over, and I can help others who face the same kind of storms.

I just want you to know how pleased I am with the results of my surgery you performed in June. The results far exceed my expectations, even while I’m healing! Not only are you extremely professional, but you are caring and reassuring. I had given up hope that I would be “normal” again after the birth of my second child. You have given me a new lease on life and have restored my confidence. Your staff is wonderful and helped to add to my positive experience. Thank you again!

Words seem inadequate to express my gratitude (and amazement!) for what you have done for me. It’s been a long journey, and it takes even longer for esteem and body image to catch up with the physical changes. Thank you for being such a compassionate surgeon. Your extraordinary skills and caring are a rare combination. I hope you can instill both in surgeons you are teaching.

At this season on thanksgiving, I wanted to express my deepest gratitude to you. You have an uncommon combination of great surgical skill and confidence with humble and gentle connection with patients. I feel very lucky to be one of your patients! From my first consultation with you, I knew that you listened to me and instilled confidence by your knowing just how to proceed. I know that you have many successful years ahead. I wish you in those years to go from strength to even greater strength.

Thank you for all your concern and excellent work on my behalf. I hope this new year brings continued health and happiness to you and your family.

Want to thank you Dr. Lin for all you have done; you and your team for me back in June. You were all wonderful!

Wishing you all a joyous and healthy holiday season! Thanks for taking such great care of me-I feel so fortunate to be in the hands of the best!

Boston Plastic Surgery is rated 4.9 out of 5.0 based on 295 ratings.

I came to Dr.Lin for a septoplasty, I had the same procedure in the past with another Dr and never felt much of a difference. I came to Dr. Lin after lots of research online and reading reviews and I have to say he lived up to the ratings. He and his team made the entire process very easy from start to finish are were very communicative. The amount of relief I feel after my procedure with him is life changing! I highly recommend Dr. Lin!

Amber Bourgault
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.

Tyler Volpe-Knock
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.
