Verified Patient Reviews
Clearly smart and very experienced, but also very chill and personable. The best doctor of any sort I have seen yet in NYC!
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.
I've been a patient of Dr. Lin's for several years. He's very thorough and my asthma and allergies are well under control.
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!
First time leave a review. The best experience with a doctor. Highly recommended! !!!
This was my first visit, and I it was great. Got the results I was looking for, thanks!
Very theral! Knows his stuff. I highly recommend.
One of the best doctors office I've been too.
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.
This office was great so polite
He was great
