I have been seeing Dr Lima since I was 7 yrs old. He is amazing. He takes his time to listen to your concerns and is very comforting. I wouldn't go to any other ENT. He is easy to get an apt with, runs on time (mostly - emergencies do come up from time to time).

the absolute worst doctor in the world. He refused to sign off on approval to have a biopsy done, whilst having direct orders from the ultrasound results saying that I had possiblr punctate calcification that was suspicious of malignancy and needed to be biopsied regardless of the size. He just tells me no he was not doing it come back in 6 weeks to check it then, I went to another ent had the biopsy done & come back conclusive of having cancer & my entire thyroid removed within 3 weeks total.
