Seven years ago, I could walk about 50 feet with a cane. After a totally successful lumbar fusion surgery with about 8 decompressions, I had my life back. I could not possibly say how much this has meant to the quality of my life. I am able to be very active for a 74-year-old woman, and I am still pain free and have been since the surgery. Dr. Lim is caring, kind, even modest, and he has “mad skills.” I have recommended him many times to others and will continue to do so. He’s the best!

I would like to take a moment to share my wonderful experience with Dr. Lim after recent surgery I had on October 13, 2017. Dr. Lim performed a decompression laminectomy on my L4-l5 and my pain has improved tremendously since. Dr. Lim is a very rare Dr. in which he is sincerely kind, caring, and a very humble man which is a rare quality found in most Dr.'s. If you are looking for a qualified, compassionate, honest Dr., than you found the right Dr. Thank you Dr. Lim

Dr. Lim sent his Resident in to meet with me alone first. Then Dr. Lim entered & repeated the same tests. Dr. Lim wouldn't even acknowledge any of my week-old x-ray or MRI reports--or discuss them with me--or my pain. In fact, he hadn't even read them; so he did not know I had a compression fracture OR stenosis! When I told him about these, he denied them! I was shocked. I definitely did not want Dr. Lim cutting into me at that point. All he wanted to do was to show me my MRI pics.
