cIRS Testimonials

Excellent young optimistic smart and passionate doctor trained in Shoemaker protocol. Highly recommend.

Like some of the other reviewers, I took my son to countless doctors before Dr. Jim.  He has a very optimistic attitude with chronically ill patients, such as my child.  This is very unusual as many doctors treating mold don’t understand how much a chronically ill patient needs to hear that he believes he can get them well (90 percent).  

He is also very kind, and caring. He is a great listener and is truly passionate about helping patients with mold illness.  You can tell that he is very smart, and is willing to go the distance with patients to get them well.  

I really can’t say enough nice things about him.  I can’t imagine any one not being thrilled with his services.  My child is now 2500 miles from him, but we will never leave his care.  Very blessed to have found him!

I came to Dr. Jim from Canada looking for a doctor to address my symptoms of both mold illness and chronic low back pain. He was able to do both and went out of his way to make sure I had as long of sessions as I needed to be properly diagnosed and educated as to my back injury and the proper care and exercises I would need in order to heal! Since then, I have been having much less pain and can tell that my body is slowly beginning to heal itself compared to misdiagnosises in the past that left me in a perpetual cycle of pain flares. He also appropriated the bloodwork I would need to get a proper diagnosis for my mold illness symptoms to provide accurate care and medicine. Allowing me to give him my full, detailed medical history, he was able to start me on a few medicines right away which have slowly helped me feel like there is hope to come out of this. I highly recommend him and his team!

Dr Jim is the first and only doctor to truly take the time to properly diagnose me for mold disease. I have been seeing Dr Jim for over one year and every supplement and medication was prescribed after careful testing and attention to every detail. I could not recommend him enough to anyone suffering from mold / CIRS.

My healing has been remarkable over the past year and a half of his treatment. Yet as all mold illness goes, I recently had a flare up of symptoms so severe I felt the ER (during a pandemic) was the next necessary step, to make sure nothing life altering was going on. Dr Jim not only called several times to check in on me, but kept his phone on him all evening to be texted updates. I have never had a medical care professional give my mysterious illness such proper care and expert attention. Thank you Dr Jim for being such an outlier in the medical field.


My visit with Dr Lysander Jim was one of the most thorough visits I have seen with a doctor. He has a very pleasant and friendly demeanor and listened to my story of health issues caused from mold. He did a thorough examination including visual contrast test and neurological testing. He explained to me all of my questions and I was very pleased with his explanations and insight into my condition. He even contacted me on a Saturday for questions I had regarding treatment. I did all the blood work he requested and have started a medication for me healing path. I highly recommend him.

I traveled to LA from Vancouver to see Dr. Jim for CIRS. He was very knowledgeable and professional and spent a lot of time talking with me. We have a plan to follow and Dr. Jim has been good in answering my many questions via email. It is early days for me, but I am very hopeful that Dr. Jim has me on the road to recovery. Oscar at the front desk is great and very organized!

Updated Review:

I travel half way across the country to see Dr. Jim and he is wonderful. I’ve been working with Dr. Jim for over a year after seeing dozens of doctors.  He is thorough, does a great job of explaining very complex medical problems and is compassionate. I believe he truly understands how much his patients are suffering and he really cares about helping each patient heal or at least regain some quality of life. I wish more doctors were like Dr. Jim and I wish I had found someone like Dr. Jim years ago.

Previous Review:

I travel half way across the country to see Dr. Jim and it is worth it–he truly saved my life. He is patient focused, super educated and is a great listener. I had been going through one doctor after another and no-one could figure out what was wrong. Dr. Jim figured it out and after only two months of treatment and for the first time in years, I no longer feel like I’m getting worse. He is great about working with my primary doctor. I’m a retired business exec, and am a pretty tough patient because I want to understand what is going on in my body and the treatment. I ask a lot of questions. Dr. Jim is one of the rare and special doctors who treat active and curious patients with respect instead of as a nuisance. I feel very lucky to have him as my doctor!

Dr. Jim is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and patient. My partner and I have been seeing him for Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome due to water damaged buildings for 9 months. I am so glad we found him, he has helped us tremendously!


Dr. Lysander Jim is the best doctor I’ve ever had. He’s extremely knowledgeable and an incredible listener. His passion for individualized care is immediately obvious with the level of attention and care he dedicates to each patient. Like many others, I was frustrated seeing countless doctors with no answers before finding Dr. Lysander Jim. He literally blew my mind with his vast understanding of CIRS and how it impacts all systems of the human body.

No matter your concern, Dr. Jim will take the time to answer all your questions. He is on the cutting edge of CIRS treatment and is constantly up-to-date on the latest research and treatments.

His friendly personality is a breath of fresh air in the medical profession. You will feel welcome in his office and will leave excited about your customized treatment program.

A++ 11/10 Best Doctor. Highly recommended. If you are not in the area, it is worth it to make the trip to see Dr. Jim.
