About Dr. Lim

Philosophy of care

I believe in informed choices when counseling my patients. I believe my role is an educator, to make sure my patients are aware of all the different options available to them - and, at the same time, to advise them as to what may be the best choice based on their clinical picture.

Why I entered medicine

During medical school, my toughest rotation was OB/GYN. I spent the most number of hours in the hospital and I slept the least, but it was the rotation that left me the most satisfied. I love the combination of medicine and surgery, and I find my role in women's health rewarding.

Community involvement

I volunteered during medical school and residency, helping at blood drives and free health screenings.

Personal interests

I spend time with my family, exploring our new neighborhood. We visit our extended family in New York and New Jersey. In a quiet moment (not very many), I love reading Shakespeare.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
