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!

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.

Thank you so much for the guidance throughout the first phase Dr. Lin and for continued support beyond the one month with the aim of submitting our abstracts to conferences . It was very helpful and a great start into research for a beginner such as myself. This is exactly what I was looking for to prepare me to do research in the US. I am very grateful to you and your team for taking the initiative to start this online rotation. Thank you for also being understanding of my busy schedule and for being very encouraging and supportive all the way! Forever grateful!

The research rotation with Dr. Lin was more than what I expected. I gained insight into the complexity of preparing, planning and executing a systematic review. I also reviewed and learned new topics about the role of PI’s, HIPAA laws, Biomedical research, epidemiology and statistical analyses. Meeting Dr. Lin was wonderful since we had conversations about the research process and he guided me in the right direction.

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 had the gratifying opportunity to enroll in the virtual plastic surgery rotation with Dr Lin. In addition to the elaborate online curriculum, I felt fortunate to have daily protected time with a plastic surgery program director which is not common on regular rotations. This has provided me with valuable knowledge, mentorship, and insight. Dr Lin is friendly, engaging, and eager to teach. He was prompt in addressing our concerns whether in session or through email. After finishing the rotation, he was keen on following through and staying connected. The online teaching platform is comprehensive, organized, and user friendly. During the online sessions, Dr Lin was thorough, supportive, and understanding. He encouraged questions, simplified complicated concepts, and made sure we understood the material. I enjoyed his enthusiasm which made the experience more pleasant and uplifting. I feel much more confident to engage in plastic surgery discussions and research from the knowledge I gained. Although there is no hands-on experience, Dr Lin goes over several important, and frankly fascinating surgical procedures with a step-by-step explanation. The ability to pause and inquire about any step in the surgery is not always possible during live procedures due to the emergent nature of surgeries. However, with the online rotation, I did not have this hesitancy where I wanted to ask questions but did not want to disturb the surgeon’s attention as he operates on a patient. You also have access to additional surgery recordings. I highly recommend this rotation to anyone who wants to learn more about plastic surgery. Moreover, I believe this rotation can serve as a preparatory or complimentary tool for in-person rotations, research fellowships, or residency training in plastic surgery.

For years I’ve struggled with breathing due to my deviated septum and I was insecure with how my nose looked from the side. I would have a difficult time falling to sleep due to not being able to breathe through my nose and I hated having my picture taken especially on my ‘bad’ side. If I had known Dr. Lin was going to be my surgeon , I would have done my rhinoplasty and septoplasty a long time ago. I couldn’t be happier with the results!!! I feel and look great. From day one, Dr. Lin answered all my questions and concerns with his comprehensive knowledge and expertise. He was compassionate, thorough and never once did I feel unprepared or wondering what to expect . I highly recommend Dr. Lin , don’t wait another minute… you want be disappointed.

It has been an amazing journey to do observership under Dr. Lin. Dr. Lin's classes push us to the limit to learn more and understand more plastic surgery concepts. He has provided an extensive platform to learn in the form of a Deckermed platform, which was very useful for getting the plastic surgery concepts. The Quizzes were very challenging and prompted us to read the articles again and again. His live classes were in detail, from embryology to the latest concepts like targeted muscle reinnervation on which he is doing a lot of research. I learned a lot and the colleagues who attended classes with me were amazing. Dr. Lin also has great communication and interpersonal skills. He spoke and explained the concepts well and was available for any clarifications or questions. I highly recommend this to anyone who is willing to learn and build connections.

I am really grateful to Dr. Lin. Through this program, I got the chance to work with a renowned physician who is on the Mt Rushmore of plastic surgeons, learn from him, get his direction, increase my understanding of the specialty, and, most importantly, discover techniques that I had never heard of or seen before. This program provided a thorough explanation of what plastic and reconstructive surgery entails. I believe I have acquired an incredible quality of knowledge throughout my four-week rotation, and I've enjoyed every moment of it. Dr. Lin addressed all of our questions in a straightforward, comprehensive manner, made study interactive asking questions and listened to what we stated. I can say that he has created a superb course when it comes to instructing both novice and seasoned students. I am motivated to learn more about this fascinating profession after viewing a variety of cutting-edge procedures and realizing that there is no physical restriction that a qualified and highly skilled plastic surgeon cannot cure. My expectations were exceeded, I dare say.

Dr. Lin is not only an excellent surgeon but also an exceptional educator. His enthusiasm for the success of his students is very encouraging. He always ensured we had all the resources needed to succeed and answer any questions, along with explaining his rationale in a relatable way to his students. I highly encourage anybody who can work with him to do so, regardless of their medical specialty choice.
