      Excellent first rate surgeon, he was so meticulous with my surgery, I healed very well both inside and out. Dr. Lim performed a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) and me and my children are grateful to have me back to my normal self. Thank you so much for your expertise and for your wonderful bedside manner....I will always highly recommend you to anyone!!

      This doctor left me to die! He removed my gallbladder and lacerated my liver. My liver was leaking bile all inside of me and he would not do anything. I was in SEVERE pain and he thought it was all in my head. I had to find a new surgeon because I became septic with bile peritonitis. If you see this doctor RUN!
