Dr Harrison Lin is one of the Best Doctors that I have been fortunate enough to receive care from. He was able to correct an ear problem that I have had for years and the follow up care has been excellent. UCI is privileged to have such an outstanding Doctor.
Everyone at the office is friendly and helpful. Dr. Lin examined me and listened to me. I'm at a level of hearing that I haven't been at in years.
I met with Dr. Lin at UCI and he is a great person. He really knows what he is talking about and had very clear instructions.
Dr. Lin saw my mother. He understood her limit in understanding and was very patient with her. The office staff was quick to get back with me.
Dr. Lin saw my grandson. We thought that there was no hope for his hearing loss, but the doctor was compassionate and professional and really improved my grandson's daily life! He helped us a lot. He is a great asset to the area.
I have really appreciated the dedication that Dr. Lin has to his patients. I highly recommend him.
