Verified Patient Reviews
He was very down to earth, listened well, explained things very thoroughly, and was kind.
Dr Lim is exceptional! He listens carefully to discusses details! I highly recommend and feel confident in his abilities.
Sent most of my appointment with a PA, spent about three minutes with doctor.
Wow is all I can say. Dr Lim is one of the best doctors I have ever seen and I have seen many. He was extremely patient and took the time to really understand the problems I was having and the concerns. He really cares for his patients and ensures that you are comfortable with everything. He thoroughly explains everything and makes you feel confident in what he is saying. Definitely would recommend.
I wanted a bit more information about a procedure .
they ALL took the time to listen and to hear my concerns and make a plan to move forward!
Very pleasant experience. Dr. Lim listen carefully and was very attentive. Made me feel welcome and truly cared about helping me.
The ratings where accurate. He's awesome, attentive, great listener and wants to solve my issues that know one else wanted to. He's great.
Great discussion. He spent a good amount of time answering my questions
Dr Lim has a great laid back manner and listens, unlike other doctors who spend 1/2 the time in the room pecking away on a tablet, which drives me nuts.
Was a little difficult to locate the office. When I tried to call in to get directions, I had to wait for the automated response system to go through all options before it said "Press 7 to get directions"; that should be the first option so patients don't have to keep driving in circles looking for it. Even better to let us talk to a real person quicker. Other than that, I still had to fill out in-patient forms even though I provided this information through Zoc Doc. None of my medical history made it to their system. So I had to fill out 6 pages of stuff before I could be seen.
Very thorough and really seems like he truly wants to help me get better.
Listened to my issues and explained thoroughly. First appointment will see how it continues
Very easy going/laid back provider. Made me feel comfortable.Great work overall

Dr. Lim put me at ease right away.
Dr. Lim was great. I felt at ease right away and he explained how he would help me with my concerns. I really liked his office staff as well. The office was easy to find with adequate parking in a very nice and clean area. The inside office was attractive, clean and comfortable.
Pleasant . Dr . Lim addressed my needs and was very professional . Very pleased
Only spoke to me for about 5 minutes and decided I needed a full scoping of my entire insides, and right away. I've been dealing with my symptoms for 15 years, so I felt like he just wanted to book a procedure to get paid the big money without really trying to figure out what is wrong with me.
Very friendly, short wait and friendly office staff.
Great Dr. Made everything seem personal and it seemed like he was generally interested.
Doctor Lim was very attentive, he wasnt rushed at all. Very professional!

He's the best doctor I've seen in my 62 years
Dr. Lim was very warm and welcoming when he first introduced himself. He was very knowledgeable and willing to answer any and all questions I had without making me feel he was in a hurry or too busy. He showed real concern for my medical issues and that was a nice change from what I am used to with most doctors.

Extremely impressed with Dr. Lim and the office staff in general.

It was quicker than I thought but I would had like if he check my medical problem more closely.
Dr Lim spends quality time with patients and really answered all my questions and identified the exact root cause of the issue i have. He is a life saver.
Everyone was so nice and Dr. Lim was very thorough and caring. He took what I said very seriously and gave me the answers I needed. Don't hesitate making an appointment with him! Himself as well as his staff were very nice and professional!
The doctor is awesome, unfortunately he uses Arizona Digestive Health who uses Arizona Advanced Anesthesia and Grand Canyon Anesthesia for any procedures and you will be billed double. Once for a nurse anesthetist and once (same amount, doubled) for some Anesthesiologist to supervise. Find a doctor that uses a place that bills only for an Anesthesiologist who does the actual work, as we have with any other surgical procedures.
Very personable, professional and knowledgeable.was able to accommodate my schedule and was expeditious in arranging diagnostic procedures
It was a great visit, and using ZocDoc.com saved time. It was a great first experience with ZocDoc. Dr. Lim was very kind and direct and looking forward to my next visit.
I really liked Dr. Lim but thought his office staff were some of the worst I have ever encountered. I was told to arrive 30 minutes prior to my appointment to fill out paperwork and arrived to find no one there. I was confused and thought maybe I was at the wrong place. The door was locked and the lights were off. I tried calling the office number but no one answered. I waited and finally the receptionist/nurse arrived right at my appointment time. I found it very unprofessional that I was told to arrive 30 minutes prior to my appointment to be locked out! To make matters worse, I never was able to receive my lab work results. I called and spoke with Dr. Lim's staff on multiple occasions, giving my fax number every time. I tried having the results mailed to me as well, but nothing ever arrived, despite way too much effort on my behalf. I liked Dr. Lim a lot, but his staff has ruined any hope of me recommending him or returning. I didn't even go do the additional tests he had recommended, simply because I knew I wouldn't be informed of my results. I hope he reads this review so he can at least be aware what a disaster at least some of his employees are. It's a shame that they are bringing him down - he seemed like an excellent Doctor!
He was really late...after waiting for a long time he saw me for 5-7 minutes as a new patient. Asked me maybe four questions didn't even check my abdomen as I had pain and tenderness. Very disappointed!!
Dr. Lim was very friendly and helped me to feel at ease. I didn't wait long at all and he didn't make me feel rushed either. I highly recommend him!
I had a very good experience with Dr. Lim. He was very knowledgeable and spent at least a 1/2 hour with me answering all of my questions. I would highly recommend him to others looking for a gastroenterologist.
He cared and he spoke to me like he did. Very pleasurable.
Before I was seen by Dr. Lim a Physician's Assistant asked me a series of detail questions about my health issues. Later, I was seen by Dr. Lim, who was attentive when I was describing what was going on with me. I felt I was properly taken care of and I didn't feel like I was rushed at all.
Very professional, very knowledgeable, very warm. I know I am in good hands.
Dr. Lim was very thorough- he answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease:)
He was very knowledgeable and very patient. I did not feel at all like he was in a big hurry (like most Dr. 3-5 min. and their gone) to get on to the next PT. He answered all my questions and in way understandable way. I very much like that he is not a hasty "scrip" doctor, and is willing to suggest healthful ways to help start the road to preventive care as well as needed treatment. Thanks ZOCDOC!
