What People Say About Dr. Russell Lim, MD
Reply
Had my first visit with this man last month. Appt. Coming up Feb. 10. After 18 months with another doctor (who the judge said won my case for disability) the state moved me to him...the same week the judge made his ruling....hmmmm....he greeted me with a terse "why are you here"? Nurse Rathcett has a better bedside manner!!! Then he proceeded to compare me...to him....derided me and dismissed me with "do you expect me to believe"....hmmm....did this man call me a liar after 15 minutes? ?

I used Dr Lim several years ago when I lived in Sacramento. He is the BEST. I TRIED MY BEST TO GET HIM TO MOVE TO OKLAHOMA WITH MY FAMILY BUT HE WOULDN'T. I have yet to find another like him. He called me a time or two after my move here to check on me. That's an awesome Doctor. He is the best. Miss him alot.
