      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

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
