Guy Lin, M.D.

Dr. Guy Lin received his Medical Degree from the University of California, San Francisco Medical School. He then went on to complete a General Surgery internship and an Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery residency at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Lin also completed a clinical fellowship in Facial Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery through the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. After entering private practice, Dr. Lin maintained a part-time academic position at Mount Sinai, teaching both residents and medical students at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens.

He has now devoted himself fully to private practice, maintaining close ties to Mount Sinai Hospital, as Associate Clinical Instructor, teaching both medical students and residents. Areas of special interest include sinus surgery and surgical treatments to improve nasal airflow. Dr. Lin's extensive training provides him with unique expertise in rhinoplasty.  He is dual board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.  Dr. Lin performs surgeries at Midtown Surgery Center and Mt. Sinai’s hospital and ambulatory centers.

Dr. Guy Lin also specializes in the nutritional management of common inflammatory ailments affecting the head and neck.  A major emphasis on whole foods that are plant based will be used to help naturally treat chronic sinus, reflux, and other inflammatory disorders affecting the ear, nose and throat.  The goal will be to ultimately reduce the burden of antibiotics, reflux medications and other anti-inflammatory medications that provide a temporary fix to a problem.

I had septoplasty/turbinectomy surgery just over a week ago and already feel great. I was highly impressed with Dr. Lin's attentiveness knowledge and care. He addressed all of my questions and concerns and after just a few days I feel great and am breathing better. In addition Mt Sinai Hospital was excellent. For such a large hospital they treated me with the utmost care concern and respect.

I was so thrilled that Dr. Lin did my tonsillectomy. It's a pretty scary procedure and he and his staff made the process extremely smooth and painless for me. After the surgery they have been there for me every step of the way and have made my recovery as easy as possible. I would highly highly recommend Dr. Lin and the ENT and Allergy Associates.

I was very pleased with Dr Lin. He was very attentive to my needs and asked the need questions. When it came to the diagnoses he said that we could handle with medication or a CT scan and in the end went with medication and if they didn't work a CT scan. Unlike some doctors he allowed me to decide and didn't pressure me either way. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lin

I was very pleased with the medical care I recieved from Dr. Lin. I went to him for rhinoplasty surgery as I was unhappy with the look of my nose. He did a thorough exam and consultation regarding what I was looking for. After my few weeks of recovery I am extremely happy with the results! I highly recommend him as a plastic surgeon.
