I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Lin. He asked a lot of necessary questions and basically helped me realize what I need to do deal with my allergy situations. I need to follow up with him as he recommended and follow his instructions. I would recommend him to others.

The ladies in the office are delightful. The doctor is very straightforward. I don’t mind that, but if you need a gentler approach, let him know. :)

Once I was seen, Dr. Lin was helpful and professional. However, I waited 40 minutes after my scheduled appointment time before being seen, after arriving 15 minutes early.

To see him was no problem. The problem was he wanted me to do blood work but he sent me to out of network lab. Too expensive.

His office was packed with patients suffering from seasonal allergy on the day of my visit. Understandably he was fast and to the point, but still answered all my questions. Very professional, generally super satisfied. All the staff were extremely helpful. The nurse was knowledgeable and funny.

Doc was helpful about what I was really allergic to. I liked that he was hesitant to push meds on to me to resolve my problems. He recommended lifestyle changes and then asked to follow up if that didn't make things better.

He was quick in, doesn't really listen to what you have to say. It's more like I'm the doctor and I know what you have and don't have.

Strange bedside manner. Very gruff and minimally detailed. Had to ask him what I was allergic to and what medications he was prescribing. Nurse was also challenging.

Knowledge, effective and understanding! I will be returning for all my allergy concerns to see Dr. Robert Lin he was great, and I would definitely recommend him.

Extremely disrespectful and uninterested. I did not go to an allergist to get told my skin is so bad and to be bothered about buying a flu shot from the office numerous times. Very rude and insensitive. Will not be returning and would much rather spend my money elsewhere.

Very professional. Took time with me, unlike most doctors who rush you. Didn't make me come back after the consultation to do an allergy test so he could double bill my insurance. Finally, a doctor who is there to help rather than just make a buck!

Make sure you don't take an allergy pill at any point 24 hours before you go to get a consult or shots. I didn't know this and had to reschedule appt.
