I was early for a 3:15 appointment and waited in the conference room for about a half hour, but that is on me. They brought me back to see the Doctor at 3:20 and he quickly addressed my problem. I wasout of the office by 3:45 with an effective medical solution. The Doctor and his staff are professional and knowledgeable. The office process is also quite smooth and efficient. Good doctor. Good staff. Highly recommend.

My first visit, and the staff was super friendly. They were conversational and engaging and treated me like I was a visiting family member rather than a new patient. Dr. Lim continued this with his friendly and easygoing manner. My issuewas taken care of promptly, and in a friendly, professional, manner. Highly recommend this Dr. and his team!

Dr Lim cares more than most of my other doctors. He is also friends with my GI Doc, also a good guy, so what a coincidence.

My visit with the Doctor was good. What was not good was I showed up for my appointment per the message I got from ZocDoc, today at 3PM. The office attendant said that I was two days early and that theyhad my appointment at 3PM on the 30th. So the issues between the scheduling at ZocDoc and the office continue to be an issue. After much conversation the staff agreed to squeeze me in. So I got to see the doctor a few minutes before 4PM.

Dr. Lim was great! I would definitely recommend him to others. Do not plan other appointments around this one, though. You will have to wait. I was fine with it, as Dr. Lim spent sufficient time with me when he camein to the exam room. All of my questions were answered and he was very pleasant when speaking. I did not feel rushed.
