Dr. Lim is professional & personable. I don't understand the couple negative reviews?? He's kind & compassionate. I was a patient, when he began his practice. I had Alopecia throughout my 20's. I was so self-conscious. He was able to treat me with injections, & all my hair grew back.. Also, he has such a sharp educated eye. He found a Tumor on my Left Flank -I never noticed. He removed it with such precision, you can't see the scar. He's given me free samples. His daughter is darling!

He is one of only a few Dermatologist in area. Appointments do take a month or so, but that is to be expected. He treated me and knew what the issue was, so I am happy.

Dr. Lim and his office have always been professional and friendly. He removed a basal spot from my nose and 8 years later, you still can't see the scar. He's thorough and trustworthy. He's very invested in your health and lectures all of us about skin care and sun damage. He's treated our whole family for various things. Acne, squamous cell, basal, moles, exzema...

Incompetent. He had a medicaid clinic. Took 4 months to get an appt. He left exam/ended appt. as I talked to him about my condition. Next day appt. are available at his private practice, if you have good insurance if not you wait 4+ mo. between appts. He decided to take me off of my Cystic acne meds to see what would happen, despite my objections causing deep sunken & pitted scars across both sides of my face. I now have a Master's, great job insurance, but can't fix the damagede he caused

Dr. Lim is rigid & in it for the $$. He does not have a genuine interest in caring for patients-very methodical /lacks caring. My daughter,about to be a life guard, I was worried about the dangers extreme sun exposure. Not being able to get a new pt. appointment for 6 mths, I took her along to my appointment (hoping she could take my appoint. and no) explained my concern, Dr. Lim totally ignored her like she did not even exist in the room & didn't offer literature etc. The staff & Dr were rude
