Dr. Lim did not spend much time discussing my symptoms nor giving me a thorough enough exam. He was rather dismissive. I have since found a better ENT that gave me his full attention and used his knowledge and experience to help me.

GREAT doctor! First doctor my daughter DID NOT cry for! He is kind, gentle, and did a great job on our daughter's tube surgery! I highly recommend him! I went back to him to look at my sinus issues!

Went in to make an appointment and found that I could be seen that very day. Dried blood had been found in my left ear by a Beltone Hearing Aid specialist.

Very efficient and effective in cleaning my right ear which had impacted so much that it was causing pain and hearing loss. I arrived about an hour early, because I had been to another doctor's appointment that same morning and was finished there quickly. I was very pleased to be called in almost as soon as I arrived.

Dr. Lim hasn’t performed two tube surgeries on our son and one adnoidectomy as well over the years. He continues to give great care and we believe he isn’t the best in the area for our child. Appts may run late, but it’s worth it to us for the quality of care we know we will get.

Very professional and listened carefully. He was efficient in addressing my concern and gave me a test to confirm that I was in good shape with my hearing. Now that some earwax was removed and drops were prescribed, I feel confident in achieving a better hearing result soon.

Dr. Lim is the best! He literally saved my life several years ago when I had an awful infection that was threatening my brain tissue. I have recommended several family members and friends to him. He's a wonderful doctor!

At this point, I would not recommend Dr Lim at all. I had complete sinus, septum, and nasal surgery in January 2016 and I am extremely disappointed with the result. I still cannot breath out of the right side of my nose when I lay down, and Dr lim instead told me to use Flonase.... Even though I insisted it was only on the right side that I had problems. The surgery in January was billed to my insurance for $90k, and it was a lot of pain and expense. I EXPECTED TO BREATH AFTERWARDS!!!!!!
