14/07/14 5 5 5 5 I am always bragging about what a great family doctor I have. Dr. Lim reminds me of an old school doctor, who takes the time to listen to his patients. Yet he is young and is always knowledgeable about what the latest technics and procedures are available. He always gives me choices and is not a prescription pusher, yet if I ask for a prescription he does not lecture. Great doctor, extremely happy with him. The staff is very nice, always friendly and does not make you feel rushed when making an appointment. Lucky me and my family to have people we can trust and rely on when we are not well.  Respond

23/01/13 5 5 5 5 I've known Dr. Lim for quite some time. I shadowed him while I was in high school so I not only have experience with him as a patient, but also seen how he is with all of his other patients. He's very helpful and easy to talk to highly recommended!

26/09/12 4 4 5 5 Dr. Lim is an extremely caring doctor and will take the time needed during your appointment. He truely listens and will tell you what you need to hear instead of what you want to hear. Very rarely he is late to take you in at your scheduled time and almost all his staff are friendly, helpful, and caring. Very rarely have I had a bad or negative feeling from them. If Dr. Lim doesnt know or isnt sure on something, he researches to find out, and in one of my cases he did it right in front of me to get me the answer right away. I am totally satisfied with him as my doctor and would never want to change him for any other doctor!!

14/03/08 2 3 1 1 Dr. Lim has the charisma. But based on my experience, you have to watch it with him, or he'll send you on your way with no proper diagnosis or no solution to your problem other than to "take Tylenol", which is what happened to me many times. Only after I insisted on seeing a specialist I was able to find out what the problem really was and how to solve it in the long-run. This doctor may seem charming, but based on my experience, he doesn't seem to be very knowledgeable and he seems to be caring only on the surface. In my case, all I ever received from this doctor is the treatment of symptoms, not the root causes. He tends to jump to conclusions, sometimes without proper testing, and he can be wrong: he thinks he knows it all, and he really doesn't. If you choose to see this doctor, he will be nice, but be very careful. Depending on your symptoms, especially if you suspect you have something serious, insist on getting a referral to see a specialist and/or to have more tests done.  Respond

23/04/07 4 5 5 Dr. Lim is a very professional yet friendly physician. He takes time with his patients and if he is unsure of the answers he refers you to someone who does. Is very open to alternative medicine as well. Trusts his patients as they understand their bodies more than anyone else.  Respond
