Patient Reviews (3)
in Gilbert, AZ |
Waited over an hour, horribly cramped dirty and smelly rooms. It was my first visit with my daughter who has special needs. I had a list of specialists I'd like referrals to based on her symptoms and likely genetic conditions. She shamed me for thinking I could possibly know anything about my daughter's medical condition and know which specialists I ought to see, repeating to me, "I am the captain of this ship!" If you have any personal opinions for your own healthcare, look elsewhere.

She is extremely unprofessional and inconsiderate. She belittled my aunt and talked to her like she doesn't understands what she was saying. She implied my aunt caused her sons thyroid issue at 19 months. How does one go about saying things like that when they are expected to be a professional Doctor. Blaming patients is ridiculous. She also likes to push you to buy medication from the practice rather then write you a prescription.

I had a hole in my heart as a baby and Dr Lim helped me and it healed overnight in 1987!
