Nothing less than remarkable!

Dr. Lim performed my ACDF and his level of care, attention to detail and concern were exceptional. I heard many good things about Dr. Lim and I can personally say they are all well-deserved.

Gave me my life back...

Dr. Lym replaced two discs in my neck last fall--20 years of pain and PT are history. No more nasaids or nerve meds. Back in the gym, living a normal life. Office staff are superb. Zero problems with billing/insurance .

2-Level Disc Replacement Surgery

Dr. Lim performed a 2-level disc replacement on me 1-1/2 years ago. I have had complete relief from the symptoms In was having from an impinged nerve. His professionalism during the consultation, surgery and post surgery follow-up visits was outstanding. I would and have recommended Dr. Lim to family and friends.

Insensitive and rude

Don't go to Dr. Lim if you are a person of size. I'm a size 18; I know this contributes to my back pain, unfortunately my back pain is severe enough that it also limits my activity levels. Dr. Lim looked at me with utter disgust, talked about how I'd "make his life easier" if I lost weight first, and how people who are "built like me" make his life more difficult. Then he actually traced the shape of my body in the air with his fingers, and compared me to his very petite assistant, saying, obviously with someone of YOUR size, the incision will be a lot bigger than it would be on someone of HER size. He was full of contempt and disgust for me and honestly, I'm not even that big a person. Like I said, I'm aware of the physics of my situation but there are ways to handle it with courtesy, professionalism, and grace, and he showed me none of that. I left his office in tears. No way would I trust this man to cut me open for any reason whatsoever; I'm not sure he thinks fat people deserve to live a pain free life, or life at all. I have never had a doctor treat me with such utter disgust. Please if you are a person of size, find someone else.

Best of the best.

Dr. Lim performed surgery on me at the end of 2017. Among all his other remarkable qualities such as bedside manner and thorough knowledge of my condition- he has superlative talent and skill as a surgeon. His NP Meghan is just wonderful too. Thank you Dr. Lim! I will always refer people to your practice!
