He is very intelligent, he immediately knew what was wrong with my throat & gave me a real solution on how to fix it instead of just prescribing me medication. I have been to two ENT before him, who had noidea what was wrong with me. I would highly recommend Dr. Guy Lin!

Spent 5 mins seeing the doctor while 40 mins waiting to be checked in. The process is extremely unorganized. Visitors were left waiting in the chair upon arrival without checking in while the front desk clearly had plenty of idle time.The doctor exam was quick, possibly because my case was simple. Wish doctor could spend more time to talk about my case and answer my questions. Instead doctor seemed rushed probably because this location is way over capacity.

Dr. Lin was so great! He resolved my issue quickly, but had the patience and compassion to ask further about the issue so that he had a full understanding about the underlying concerns and to answer any questions I may have.I also really appreciated that he offered a home remedy solution as an alternative to a prescription he also offered as an option, so I was given a choice about whether or not I wanted to try more medication. I did, however, have to wait around 30 min to see him because the woman who checked me in wasn’t very on top of things.

Dr. Lin himself was very pleasant as well as helpful. My only irritation, and hesitation to book again with his office in the future is that I arrived at 9:00am for my 9:10am appointment and was not seen until 9:55.

Dr. Lin is great, however the support staff is really lacking. I think they may just deal with too many patients to provide attentive service. I was given antibiotic from a class that I'm allergic to (that was documented in theEMR). When the pharmacist called to have it replaced he was disconnected three times and encouraged me to call directly. I received a call a day later telling me to use artificial tears for as a post-procedure antibiotic (I kid you not) after having an ear procedure.

Dr. Lin explained in detail what to expect and showed me exactly what the problem was, it is none as silent reflux. Another Doctor did an exam prior to me meeting Dr. Lin and found nothing wrong. I guess different E.N.T.Practitioners have a practice what is none as reasonable knowledge.

Dr. Lin cleaned my ear quickly and effectively. The only downside was it took over an hour to be seen and the front desk's excuse was that their systems were down...
