Dr. Robert P Yim has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Pulmonology
A pediatric pulmonologist is the go-to resource for children who need treatment for any kind of breathing issue or lung disease. If your child coughs up blood, has a cough that isn’t going away, or displays other symptoms such as trouble breathing, chest pain or wheezing, you can ask your doctor to refer you to a pediatric pulmonologist.
Common conditions and diseases they treat range from noisy breathing, asthma and chronic coughs to lung disease, apnea and cystic fibrosis. They can also diagnose and treat cases of pneumonia in children and prescribe any kind of respiratory medication or equipment your child might need.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

We had to wait about an hour to see him, but when it was our turn I understood why. He is very kind and patient, and very thorough. My son recently began exhibiting asthma like symptoms, and I thought it would be difficult to find a pulmonary pediatrician. Dr. Yim's office is close to our home, and I will be bringing my other so to him also. Highly recommend.
First visit ever with this Dr for my 6 year old son wish I found him 6 years ago, hes awsome very kind very friendly with kids as much as my son hates doctors he was at ease with dr yim, we went in for a spider bite on my sons arm but on the way my son just started to cought for the first time and started to run a little fever while we were at the office dr yim instanly picked up on it before i could tell him by just feeling my sons glands in his neck looked in his mouth and did a test for strep and sure enough in less then 10 min they were back and sure enough my son had strep one med perscribed to cover both spider bite and strep, he nicked it before it hit it's full bloom i would have never known till he was very sick if it was not for the spider bite we went in for, for my son to walk out a dr's office calling his new dr his friend tells me something I was pleased with the whole visit and how well he looked over my son. very kind man and can tell hes not just one of those dr's who are in it for the pay but can tell he really enjoys what he does making kids feel better and ganing little friends. highly recomand!
