About me

Toy Lim is a family nurse practitioner provider at the OHSU Harm Reduction BRidges to Care Clinic (HRBR) caring for patients with substance use disorders.  She has a strong commitment to community health and working with diverse patient populations. She defines health as more than just physical well-being. She strives to understand the social determinants of health affecting patients and works to address sociopsychological needs to provide a holistic approach to care.  Her clinical interests include patient education, culturally appropriate care and women’s health. In addition to clinical care, she is interested in teaching and research, especially in developing culturally competent care and decreasing barriers to accessing health care. Before nursing, she worked as a community organizer focusing on affordable housing and immigrant rights. 

When not working, she enjoys gardening, camping, travel, cooking and spending time with family and friends

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
