Ratings for Dr. Arnold LIM
Great Doctor. He is very thorough, does necessary tests, knowledable, kind and takes time to answer questions and explain what he is doing and why. Even did some labs for medication monitoring that my pimary MD never did. He also has one of the best bedside manners (or office manners I suppose) I have ever seen. The nursing staff is good as well but the auxilliary staff tends to be hit and miss. When getting labs drawn at the Good Hope location it can take much longer than at other Aurora sites. It may be because the are understaffed and backlogged but a couple times I had been waiting over an hour to get blood drawn while other people who arrived after me were being taken. Turned out I had somehow fallen through the cracks. But despite those drawbacks I find the possible wait definitely worth it to see Dr. Lim. Plus one can get labs drawn elsewhere.
He seems very kind, but I didn't realize that he works in the clinic he does. I did not go through with the exam because too many of my family members, friends, and colleagues had poor experiences with the clinic - which is no reflection on this doctor's professionalism. I would caution people to be very thorough with their health care needs - meaning the clinics behavior as a whole.
I traveled 125 miles to see this Doctor based upon internet ratings from patients. This Doctor is just awesome, a true professional in every aspect. He has finally answered life long questions regarding my Rheumatology care. I highly recommend this Doctor to any patient. The travel was worth it. The Auora Healthcare facility he practices at, is the most efficient run medical facility I have ever gone to. The medical facility and Doctors in my area could learn from these people! Great Job!
I see Dr. Lim at the Arlington Hts., office. After years of getting no where with 2 other rheumatologists, who told me I did not have RA, finding Dr. Lim is a true gift. He is the best, most caring, thorough doc I've been to. He spends a tremendous amount of time with patients, but never makes me feel like I'm taking too much of his time. He explains everything so well and carefully. No question is too much for him. I really like his nurse, Beatrice and have found her to be very helpful. Couldn't be happier with my experience with them. Not having osteo and RA would be nice, but at least I finally have a quality doc!
Dr. Lim was the most laid-back and easy to talk to doctor I've been to. He did a thorough exam, and explained everything until I understood. He even wrote down the names for my conditions in case I wanted to look into it further on my own. The problems I ended up having were not even rheumatological in nature, but Dr. Lim diagnosed them correctly and treated them accordingly. He even encouraged me to call and let him know how things were going. Down side? His office staff were slow and his nurse was in a hurry.
