I felt my condition was examined very thoroughly and my test results were explained clearly.
Dr Lim gave me confidence with the procedure I was going to have.
I found the whole experience good. Dr Lim was brief but courteous. Reason for a 4 rather than 5 is that the investigation did not appear as thorough as my previous examination of this type and the explanation and the explanatory sheet after the examination was not as detailed.
Kept things simple ans straight forward
Explained to me what my issues could be. Was very comforting and made me feel I was in good hands!
Dr Lim was most attentive during my explanation of the earlier events and provided a coherent scientific explanation thereafter.
Dr Lim comes across as a very competent consultant and has a very pleasant and caring manner
Dr. Lim was very detailed and thorough during my appointment and explained well my treatment options . He has a pleasant and reassuring bedside manner .
I wish I had seen this doctor from the beginning as what he is doing now should have really been done at the beginning. He has explained what he is doing very clearly too and I am autistic so it was a pleasant surprise as my wife couldn't come with me this time.
