    Seems to be a very good doctor however she is extremely busy. She races in & out of exam rooms with very little time to spare for detailed questions. I had a problem and mix up with my prescriptions and left a very detailed message for her or someone to call me back. They never did. Three days later I decided to go to a new doctor and by then my eye pressure was up to 47 because I needed the eye drops that I had a question about. My vision is much too important to be handled so hastily.

    Dr. Lim has been seeing and treating my wife since May, 2016, for AMD. We decided to see her at first for just a second opinion. However, we were immediately impressed with her experience, knowledge and caring manner. We decided to switch doctors and stay with her in the future even though our trip to her office is about an hour from our home. We saw her again today (usually on a monthly basis) and scheduled our next appointment for mid January, 2017.
