I waited over an hour to see Dr. Lim. I have been having problems with my stomach for years and have done enough research to know that the symptoms I? am experiencing overlap with many different gastro disorders. The only disorderthat Dr. Lim wanted to test for was SIBO (which I? was quite certain I? didn’t have). My test for SIBO came back negative as expected. I? wish she would have considered other explanations for my symptoms and conducted a more comprehensive testing on me. Now I? have to go see another doctor to find out what’s going on.

I was seen before my appointment time! Dr. Lim was very kind and explains things thoroughly. All the gastroenterologists ive seen in the past just want to pump me full of medications. It seems like Dr. Lim actually wants to seewhat is going on and work to fix it. Totally worth my long commute! :)

She gave me an initial prognosis. Followed up with a blood draw and CT scan. When blood draw came back she contacted me immediately and ask that I do an ERP as soon as possible. She referred me to an excellentdoctor who performed the scope in less than 24 hours. Now I am without 2 more stones!! Thank you so much!!!

AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Dr Lim was by far the best Dr I've ever seen. She was interested, engaged, and insightful as to possible causes of my conditions. Dr Lim offered a treatment plan that was not only designed to help my currentissues, but also to give me an overall better quality of life. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm actually excited and looking forward to my follow up appointment! A++++ in every aspect of the experience!

It's hard to not only find a new Doctor (for new conditions presented) but also hard to find a GOOD Doctor. I was reluctant to get a Doctor off the internet but after a day of researching the area, Dr. Lim'sreviews were great so I decided to try her office out. After my first visit, I was very relieved that I decided to go with her. She was very comforting and eased my fears. She is also very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Dr. Lim to all family and friends. Her office staff was also very friendly and helpful from my first visit to my follow-ups. Great service!

this was one of the ABSOLUTE BEST patient care experiences i have ever had in my lifetime. Both the doctor and her medical assistant were so caring and supportive, helping me with paperwork i forgot, squeezing me in with a lastminute emergency appointment (something several other practices refused to do). Dr. Lim was so knowledgeable and helpful as a medical provider, but she also provided care in a very nurturing, friendly non-clinical manner. She took plenty of time with me, and i didn't feel rushed or not heard at all. If you need a GI specialist, see Dr. Lim!
