Not the same person facing proceedings in Hawkes Bay, Dr Lim of Skin Institute is a professional Dermatologist and Surgeon of the highest standard.

David grew up in Christchurch and obtained his primary medical degree from the University of Otago. He then undertook his postgraduate physician training in the Manawatu and Waikato regions, gaining a range of experience in a number of specialties including Cardiology (heart), Oncology (cancer), Renal (kidneys) and Emergency Medicine. His experience in Palliative Care helped him to develop his interaction with patients and to keep the focus on the patient as a whole rather than just the disease.

After successfully completing the RACP physician exams, David undertook specialty training in Dermatology. This was initially undertaken in Hamilton and Auckland where he gained a wealth of experience in a range of dermatologic conditions. He then spent time in London undertaking a general dermatology fellowship gaining experience from at a number of specialised clinics at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital and St John’s Institute of Dermatology. During his time in London he gave a number of talks at St John’s and the Royal Society of Medicine.

David then completed a subspecialty Mohs Surgery & Laser fellowship at Oxford Day Surgery in Perth, Australia. He has also travelled the world gaining experience from a number of world-renowned surgeons including at Mt Sinai Hospital, New York; St John’s Institute of Dermatology, London; as well as in Vancouver and California.

David’s special interests include skin cancer including complex skin cancer surgery and reconstruction of the face utilising Mohs micrographic surgery. He has presented at national and international conferences on a number of occasions and is a published author and reviewer for specialty journals in dermatology and surgery.

David is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, Australasian College of Dermatologists and New Zealand Dermatologic Society Incorporated.
