Here’s what our patients are saying:

My 91 year old father came to Dr. Lin for necessary eyelid surgery. The surgery was successful and Dr. Lin’s professionalism, care and concern was evident throughout the entire process. He fully informed my father of what to expect before and after his surgery. He even called us at home the evening of the surgery to check up on my dad! I highly recommend Dr. Lin if you are considering eyelid surgery, even if you are an older patient. His work has been exceptional and we thank him for helping our dad to see better once again.

I was very fortunate to had been referred to Dr. Lin through my Kaiser coverage. My experience with Dr. Lin and his staff has been excellent. I have been treated respectfully and professionally every step of the way for my procedure. My procedures were reviewed and explained to me. Dr. Lin and staff followed up with questions by family members caring for me immediately after surgery with prompt returned calls. I am very happy with my experience/treatment by Dr. Lin and would highly recommend him to others.

My father Randall had been suffering for a long time with droopy eyelids that blocked his vision. Until we were seen by Dr. Lin, we had a sense of hope to have a successful surgery. Dr. Lin was great at providing a sign language interpreter for all office visits and surgery. Dr. Lin explained step by step how he could help my father. The interpreter provided during surgery was great. Dr. Lin’s assistant Monique was very nice. She called my father on day of surgery and the day after to check-in to see how his condition was and to make sure he was following post-op instructions. Thank you Dr. Lin for everything.

From my first office visit, Dr. Lin and his assistant Monique made me very comfortable. His office is very clean. It is always nice to come into an office and to be known, many medical offices don’t remember their patients name. Dr. Lin is very knowledgeable and I am very happy with my surgery results! Thank you Dr. Lin and Monique for everything.

I would recommend Dr. Lin to anyone. He is an amazing doctor and did wonders for my eyes. He stopped the burning and watery eyes. All the treatments he prescribed made all the difference. I plan referring my family and friends.

Dr. Lin is a very punctual doctor with minimum wait time. I was very impressed with his skills. He put me at ease with explaining details of my eye condition and he was very informative with his treatment plans. With this information given, I trusted Dr. Lin with my treatment.

Dr. Lin is truly an exceptional doctor! I am with Kaiser and they didn’t have an Oculoplastic Surgeon. I had the option to go to UCLA or wait to see if Dr. Lin would be working with Kaiser patients. Because I was a Kaiser patient, it was a longer wait, but I have to say it was more than well worth it! My right eyelid was so swollen it impaired my eyesight. In May of 2014 Dr. Lin worked on both of my eyes. The left eyelid was amazing! The right eyelid still was over the lid. However, Dr. Lin raised my eye up. I had dealt with my eye so long I had no idea that it wasn’t even in alignment. The surgery went great! In May of this year, I was able to have the right eyelid fixed. Dr. Lin’s dedication and making sure you are happy goes above and beyond any other doctor I have ever had! If you need ANYTHING done you will not regret going to him first or even if you didn’t and need something fixed go see him!

I was referred to Dr. Lin from two of my doctors. I had this large ugly black spot on the side of my face near my eye for years. My first visit at Dr. Lin’s office was excellent. His assistant Monique was very helpful and took the time to help me fill out my forms. Dr. Lin made me feel very comfortable and confident that he would be able to remove my spot. My surgery experience was a great experience, Dr. Lin made me feel comfortable and let me know step by step of the surgery. He played music of my liking and I didn’t feel a thing. You can’t even tell that I even had such a spot on my face. I would recommend anyone to Dr. Lin. I assure you will be happy with Dr. Lin and staff.

Thank you for everything Dr. Lin.

From my first visit with Dr. Lin, I had confidence in him.  He is a very caring doctor and listened to what I had to say.  He wasn’t like a lot of doctors who don’t take the time to listen to what patients have to say.

I knew that he would fix my eye problem.  My surgery was an great experience.  He made me feel comfortable and at ease the day of surgery.  Dr. Lin did an excellent job in fixing my eye.  His nurse Monique was great too with me with her caring way.  They make a good team.  I wish Dr. Lin the best.

After an eye exam by my Optometrist (and friend), I was referred to Dr. Joseph Lin because I complained about a growth on my right eyelid that would not go away but seemed to continue to slowly grow. Me not wanting to go the way of Beauty and the Beast (me becoming the beast) my spouse made the appointment at his West Covina office and I arrived on time.

Upon entering the office I immediately sensed professionalism and care for me personally. The environment was clean, uncluttered, and absolutely under control. His staff was very friendly, welcomed me, and even happily assisted me with paperwork.

After a brief wait in the Consultation Room, Dr. Lin entered. He gave me time to explained my concern and listened attentively. There was not a hint of condescension but of genuine concern. After his exam, I was relieved to learn that it was a known condition* and that he could address it in his office.

Up to the time of the procedure my fear was gone but I was still a little nervous. He and his staff acknowledged and understood completely. I was provided music to my liking and was comforted throughout the procedure with information about what was happening (but not too much [smile]) and physical reassurance. I felt no pain.

After the procedure I was provided specific instruction to facilitate healing. A week later and after a follow-up appointment, I am completely satisfied and am back to my confident self- my confidence was stifled because of this condition and I learned that kids can be brutal when they see abnormalities on a face. :(

Not only would I recommend Dr. Lin to a friend, but also to family, and of course should the need arise again I would definitely revisit Dr. Lin and his staff.

Forgive my relatively long review but I feel that a Dr. and staff of this caliber deserves more than “They were great!”. For someone needing facial medical treatment or cosmetic surgery I highly recommend meeting with Dr. Joseph Lin.

Dr. Lin has always provided me with exceptional bedside manner.  His reception and exam rooms are always beautiful.  His staff is always friendly, helpful and professional.  It’s a pleasure to come to my appointments and have minimum or no wait time.

I had upper eyelid surgery on both eyes.  Dr. Lin did an excellent procedure on me.   My surgery experience was the best I’ve ever experienced.  He made me feel comfortable and at ease with music and he kept me informed step by step.

I would like to thank Dr. Lin for the best service I’ve ever received from any doctor.

“Hello Dr. Lin,
My name is Millie O. You did some minor surgery on my right eye that was continually watering up and dripping. The recovery was great however, my eye continued to tear up many weeks after the surgery. You continued to assure me that it would take time but, the problem would eventually go away. I can now tell you that you were exactly right! I followed your directions for the continued care and I am now so thankful that I did have the corrective procedure. From the bottom of my heart, I want to extend my sincere thanks for providing me this corrective surgery. I also want to thank you for your understanding and guidance during my recovery. NO MORE right eye tearing!!!!

Again, thank you,
M. O.”

Dearest Dr. Lin,

On the behalf of my sisters, I wish to express our gratitude for the “TLC” and personal attention you’ve given to my mother.  I am quite certain that you provide the same to all your patients, a rare professional trait these days. I commend you for this as I’ve seen how other professionals tend to minimize the concerns of their elderly patients through my church ministry. I hope to meet you one day although it was truly a pleasure speaking with you over the phone. My mother is like a new person, the marvels of good eyesight. I wish you continued success in all your endeavors and good health to you and your entire family.
