WOW, Dr. Lim operated on my back/spine in mid December and through this whole process Dr. Lim, Meghan and the entire team were exceptional! I have never had a team like this working so hard to ensure I was taken care of in every way possible. With my whole heart, THANK-YOU!!!
I came to Reston Hospital in extreme pain from a herniated disc. Dr Lim was on his way home at the end of the day. As soon as he saw the MRI he dropped everything and performed an emergency surgery. Can’t say enough about the professionalism of the doctor and his staff.
A BIG THANK YOU.
Dr. LIM, Meghan and the entire team are absolutely the best. They all made my first ever - significant surgery the Best experience I could have imagined. Even after the surgery, I never felt that I couldn't reach out to the team with questions and concerns. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from Meghan to check on me. It's been a year now and I feel much better than I did before my total discs replacement procedure. I will see this team, IF, I needed their services again, and HIGHLY recommend that you choose this team for your needs.
Back in early January, I woke up and couldn't get out of bed because my lower back was in excruciating pain. I tried everything to get any relief, stretching, walking, heat, ice, injections into the spine. I'm in my thirties and was walking around like I was in my 100s, hunched over and grabbing walls just to keep from falling over because of the pain. Had to take several days off work because I couldn't even sit up. The pain was so bad in my leg and shot down all the way to my pinkie toe, it was absolutely awful. I was terrified at the thought of surgery, especially with the spine, but Dr. Lim assured me that this discectomy would help. It was crazy, the day after surgery all the pain in my leg was gone, my back was obviously sore but the day after I could already feel improvement. It has now been 5 months after and it's amazing the process I have made and I'm no longer in pain, it took a little while and slow progression, walking definitely helped. If you are suffering with the kind of pain I had, I highly recommend going through this procedure and seeing Dr. Lim. I know surgery is not the ideal situation but sometimes it is the solution.
Dr. Lim has now performed two surgeries for me (one on my neck - two years ago - and one on my lower spine - now just 6 weeks ago). His office staff is wonderful and they have helped me with everything needed to plan for both surgeries. His billing person is also wonderful. Meghan, his assistant, is superb, and has been at my bedside in the hospital the morning after both surgeries. There is no one I would trust more and you must have absolute trust in your surgeon!!
Other neurologists and neurosurgeons were making me very worried and stressed at the possible need for surgery, but Dr. Lim was able to calm my fears and explained that my condition did not require brain surgery. What a tremendous relief and load off of my shoulders!
