I highly recommend Dr. Lin. I started seeing him due to chronic sinusitis and nasal polyps which he helped me manage for several years with non surgical intervention before I finally decided to have surgery, which I did in July 2020. Dr Lin is very responsive and always fits me in on little notice. He is knowledgeable, calm, thorough, nice and he takes the time to talk through various options and concerns. I really appreciated that although he’s a surgeon he didn’t push the surgical solution on me and worked with me for years to see whether we could manage my sinus issues non surgically until I eventually decided that it was time for last resort intervention. I will continue under his care but hope and expect to see him less after my successful surgery!

I highly recommend Dr. Guy Lin. My husband formed a subdermal growth on the side of his face near his ear that extended down his jaw and neck. Dr. Lin was very informative. After significant growth we went for a surgical consultation. Dr. Lin was supportive and made my husband feel comfortable with removing the lipoma. The day of he surgery, he met with my husband once again. I was extremely grateful for his professionalism and demeanor before surgery. After the surgery, Dr. Lin came to the waiting room and sat down with me to explain how the surgery went and to go over the post-op instructions. We had a follow-up appointment the following week and everything was healing nicely. Dr. Lin is patient, supportive and has the experience needed to make a patient feel at ease. His office is timely (I did book very early weekday appointments which may be a factor) and the staff was always very welcoming.

Dr. Lin is an amazing person and Doctor. He saw me on time and was caring, friendly, professional, empathetic and extremely knowledgeable. His diagnostic skills are top-notch and gets to the bottom of things real fast. I always walk away knowing I will get better if I follow his instructions.

I was recently referred to ENT&Allergy by my internist for a sudden loss of hearing in one ear and I was lucky enough to get to see Dr. Guy Lin. I found him to be a no-nonsense but understanding, very capable physician who took the time to explain everything to me as we went along with his evaluation and treatment. I am happy to report that it was successful in that I regained my hearing as it was before. If asked, I would definitely recommend him and the facility itself, where I was treated with not only respect but also with kindness. I am most grateful to everyone there.

Dr Lin is amazing. I use to see him working at MT SINAI years ago. I remembered him by his dedication to details when dealing with a patients medical issue and his silver hair. He began his own practice and I believe the last time I saw him was maybe 17 years ago slightly more. I began some medical issues and started with an ENT but was not happy I kept looking for a second opinion and saw Dr Lin. with no hesitation I made an appointment and just as I remember he was so detailed sending me to do this and do that but that’s who he is. He will do everything in his power to figure it out and even if it has nothing to do with ENT he won’t stop there, he begins to sent you to people he trust. Dr Lin is just as amazing as I remembered. My issue is not resolved because I’m just getting started but in a short time Dr Lin has already found so much and is waisting no time to figure out my problem(s).

Kashif Khan – Oct 05, 2019
After struggling to breathe for several months, and having seen 5 - 6 different doctors, I was finally referred to Dr. Lin. Turns out that my breathing difficulties were a result of the combination of two factors: structural (severely deviated nasal septum) and environmental (pollen allergies). Dr. Lin addressed the structural issue by surgically correcting my septum. Dr. Lin is everything one needs a doctor to be. He keeps on top of the latest research; he is sincere, kind, attentive, and engaging. He provides exceptional care, and also holds the patient accountable for self-care. The staff are very professional, efficient, and courteous. I hope not to have much need for medical attention in the future, but I certainly will seek Dr. Lin's help with any ENT needs I have.

Dr Guy Lin is a excellent doctor! He is well rounded when it comes to any ent issues. I have been seeing him for years. And when he no longer could treat me for my medical condition referred me to another specialist. My condition required a different treatment then what he could provide. Even his references are excellent. The specialist he has referred me to are as excellent as he is. I always recommend him to anyone that has ent issues. He is great! Along with the doctor being great, the staff at the 86 st location is superb. It is great to have a office that is so well put together in every way. I wouldn’t change this office for any other!

Maria in NY, NY – May 10, 2017
Dr. Lin was excellent! He carefully listened to my concerns about my sinuses, asked me what course of action I would like take (from mild to aggressive) and then offered me a very comprehensive and thorough treatment plan. It made me feel immediately better and so far my sinuses are feeling great. I'm so glad I went to Dr. Lin and I would highly recommend him to anyone

I was referred to Dr Lin by my allergist. I have been going to an allergist for years but was still having problems breathing. Dr Lin was very thorough and provided 3 recommendations to improve my breathing. A week later I am noticing a difference. I did not have to wait to get in. Was in and out. Staff was great.

I am really happy that I was referred to Dr. Guy Lin and highly recommend him. I have had difficulty to breathing for decades and, and although I was only getting minimal relief from strips and medicine, I was reluctant to have surgery since I was nervous about how it would look and feel and prior surgical options seemed way too invasive. Dr. Lin answered all my questions (and I had a lot) both before and after the surgery (which used ear cartilage to support narrow nostrils) and I am really hap

Dr. Guy Lin is an amazing doctor, I highly recommend him. He performed my septoplasty and turbinate reduction surgery. He didn't use stuffing or splints. The recovery was quick and easy. I am now breathing way better than I ever had out of both nostrils. Congestion is mostly a thing of the past. My biggest regret is not having this surgery years ago. I highly recommend Dr. Lin. He?s very professional and is truly a great doctor. I will visit him going forward for all my ENT needs.
