Dr. Lim is a Palliative Medicine physician. He is board certified in Internal Medicine and completed his Residency at Atlanticare Regional Medical Center. Dr. Lim completed his Fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University. He is very passionate about palliative medicine because of the complex thinking/thought processes involved in treating patients that are diagnosed with an advanced life-limiting illness. Advanced illness management allows him to practice the art of medicine in a manner that encompasses the concept of "healing and preserving." As life-limiting illnesses progress, Dr. Lim embraces his role as a doctor to transition the medical care from curing the disease to alleviating the pain and suffering of the patient to ensure a good quality of (prolonged) life for that person.
