What People Say About Dr. Herbert Lim, MD
Reply
Dr. Lim takes the time to explain my condition and answer my questions thoroughly even if he goes over time. As a result his waiting room may be backed up w/people waiting for their turn but I know he will spend as much time with each person as necessary. He always makes me feel that he understands my situation and is on top of everything so I have a lot of confidence in him. I really like working with him very much.
