Dr. Peter Lim is an excellent gynecologic oncologist. He stays current in the latest research and performs minimally invasive surgery using robotic technology. In addition to being a gifted surgeon, he communicates exceptionally well. After my successful hysterectomy for endometrial cancer, he spent a lot of time explaining my risk factors and his ongoing plan for monitoring my health. His explanations are research-based, detailed and very clear. He listens well, and obviously cares for me.

I just want to Thank you Dr. Lim & Staff for being so great to me always. There's no words in which I can define how great and amazing everyone was. You've been so good to my husband and I. I couldn't imagine how my life would be if I hadn't gone to see you. God bless you and your hard working staff, you have saved my life!

I was referred to Dr.Lims office by my PCP. I was very nervous and anxious about going to see him. The girls were very nice. The wait is a few hours but I was informed about the wait which I am glad they warned me about. He definitely took his time with me. He answered all my questions. He even told me the risk that came along with whatever route I chose. He's one of the most thorough doctor I have ever had. The office was amazing and they work so hard in their busy office.

Dr. Lim is a wonderful doctor and his staff is very caring. To say that I was stressed out and not at my best is and understatement. The girls in the front were amazing and really helped my anxiety. He reassured me and surgery went without a problem. Post op care by his nurse practioner was awesome. I am so glad he is Reno!

Dr. Lim is a very caring and honest person, the waiting as a new patient can be a little long but who wouldn't wait for someone who's very caring and great at their job. The most wonderful thing is that he doesn't make you feel like it's a job he really makes you feel welcomed and cared for. His staff is also very caring and will listen to what you have to say. I'm very grateful for him and his staff. Very highly to recommend him to everyone.
in Reno, NV |
Dr. Lim and his staff were very caring, helpful and supportive throughout my experience with his office and surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Lim and his office.
Reno, NV |
I am so thankful for him and his staff getting me in for an appointment so soon. I had surgery within 5 days of seeing him in the office. He was comforting, spoke to me so that I understood what was going on and was genuinely concerned for my health.
in Carson City, NV |
How can one possibly thank a person with such compassion and dedication to his patients? Everyone that works with him is at that same caliber. He personally called me at home following my surgeries and pathology reports. Information was offered to me at a pace that I could absorb and emotionally accept. Dr. Lim gave me back my life, even if only for a while.
in Nevada |
Wait time is over 3 hours for him.wasted months on useless tests till the anesthesiologist was uncomfortable with surgery. Dr seemed disappointed when I didn't have cancer. Barely talked to my husband after surgery, never talked to me about it. Never saw him post op, rarely saw his staff. Questions went unaswered and never received a call once I was sent home. No follow up visit and my calls went un returned. Been trying to get my chart for 3 years for my primary doctor and nothing.
