Area of Specialty: Rheumatology

Dr. Lim joined the Emory University School of Medicine faculty in 2002 and also completed his internal medicine residency and rheumatology fellowship at Emory.

Personal Statement:


I am interested in autoimmune conditions that disproportionately afflict ethnic minorities, in particular lupus. 90% of those with lupus are women and blacks/African-Americans are affected 3 times more than whites.

Given my passion for lupus care and research, Grady is the best place for me to be in Atlanta as well as the entire country! The patients are absolutely wonderful and are genuinely struggling with their condition. We are also passionate about understanding how limitations in access to health care impacts lupus as well.
