At Annie Lim Family Practice, our goal is to provide you with holistic medical services, value for money and generalist family health care. These ideals are defined by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners as ‘person-centred, continuing, comprehensive and coordinated whole-person healthcare to individuals and families in their communities’.
We treat people, not symptoms. We believe in the whole, not in parts.
Our patients are encouraged and empowered to participate actively in their own health care, thanks to the open, warm and caring environment fostered at Annie Lim Family Practice. We believe that a strong rapport between patient and clinician is paramount in the management of all clinical problems, especially chronic diseases.
The Annie Lim Family Practice is a traditional family practice, and our doctors are highly qualified generalist clinicians. Some have special areas of interest and expertise, and these include skin cancer, cosmetic procedures, lactation medicine and contraceptive implant procedures.
The practice opened in July 2008 and now offers its 13,000 patients the services of twelve doctors, two practice nurses, and four administrative staff. Staff understand how important it is for patients to be able to see a doctor in their times of need, and endeavor to respond promptly to all requests.
Every effort is made to allocate appointments with the doctor of your choice at all times. Where this is not possible, patients can be assured that our staff’s consultation and communication practises will ensure continuity of your health care.
The Annie Lim Family Practice is a teaching practice affiliated with the Australian National University and to GP Synergy Training, an organisation that trains general practice registrars.
Dr Lim and her colleagues believe in investing their time to educate the next generation of doctors, nurses and GPs. For Dr Lim, this is the best way to ensure that when the current generation of GPs retires, the community will continue to have trained, quality doctors.
Patients also assist in this process. “The patients in our practice enjoy helping us teach our students and we are grateful for their assistance,” says Dr Lim.

Patient feedback is very important to us, and we provide a feedback box at reception for this purpose.
