About Me

Peter Paul Lim, MD, is a specialized expert in pediatric infectious disease at Avera Medical Group Infectious Disease Specialists in Sioux Falls, SD.

“I became an infectious disease physician at a very interesting time in history,” said Dr. Lim. “As a society, we’ve witnessed how the COVID-19 virus impacted the world. From a physician perspective, it’s given us a platform to identify ways to make health care policies better.”

Expert Care in Pediatric Infectious Disease

Dr. Lim’s practice focuses on diagnosing and treating patients age 18 and younger. He treats a wide variety of conditions, including infections of the skin, lungs and other large organs.

As a father himself, Dr. Lim cares very much about the parents’ point of view. He understands parents know their child best and it’s of upmost importance to listen to them.

Active Lifestyle

When he’s not at work, Dr. Lim enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. He also likes reading, painting and learning new things.

“Life is all about learning, said Dr. Lim. “It’s a precious value of mine to always be in a position to learn something new.”
