Compared to other different types of doctor, I'd rate this whole experience as my worst one. The staff here are so unhelpful and couldn't care less when you speak with them. That is, if you can even reach them in the first place. I find it highly irresponsible of them to never return phone calls when a message has been left. They don't care to update you or guide you through the whole process. Dr. Lim is careful with his words because he does not want to be held accountable.

The doctor is fine. His staff is horrible. Incompetent, impatient, mistakes and doesn't care about any problems a patient is having before or after surgery. Refuses to return phone calls and will not admit mistakes. The accounting department for Houston Eye Associates is deplorable. Worst experience ever. Due to his staff, I will not be returning to Houston Eye Associates or John Lim.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
