I am very pleased to provide feedback about my personal experience with Dr. Lim, which was really very positive. I was very impressed for example, that I was alerted before I left home that Dr. Lim was running late because of unforeseen circumstances which delayed him in the operating theatre. This meant that I could reduce the time I was waiting at the hospital. Dr. Lim was also very courteous in in his apology for the delay. I valued the care Dr. Lim took to ensure that I understood what he was investigating, the type of tests he anticipated, possible diagnoses (without causing alarm) and also the time he dedicated to explaining everything. I left feeling confident that I had been very well looked after and that this would continue to be the case.

Dr Lim has been treating my heart conditions for years. He is extremely experienced, involved in research and training, takes the time to listen to you carefully then explains things clearly and is also very caring and supportive. His involvement in research and training means he has access to and uses all the latest technology and study findings to help treat you. I trust him implicitly and feel very fortunate to have him in charge of my care.

I feel incredibly lucky to have found Dr Boon Lim. He has an infectious passion for his job and his patients. I have lived with my symptoms for my entire adult life and learnt more in 20 minutes with Dr Lim than i have with multiple other appointments with previous specialists. His confident and assured approach gave me much needed reassurance that he would help me to move froward with a treatment plan at pace. He surrounds himself with an incredible team, all sharing his passion and ability to make what can be very complex and intimidating themes, simple and understandable - their communication skills are excellent. But what really set him apart was his ability to listen, show huge empathy and then treat me as a whole patient. I cannot thank Dr Lim enough for everything. I cannot recommend him highly enough - 5 stars all the way!

I find doctor Boon Lim a very good doctor - he is patient- takes time to listen what is really going on so he can then diagnose what is wrong. I am feeling so much better since his diagnosis and treatment.

Despite going in and thinking I had POTS Dr Lim listened intently to my health concerns, looked at my videos and photos I had bought along. Then did the relevant tests and explained he didn't think I had POTS but something else and explained clearly why and gave me an at home care plan with assurance that I would feel better but if I don't in 3-6 months I was welcome to go back to him. I felt heard and understood. Reassured also. Couldn't recommend him enough.

Dr.P Boon Lim comes highly recommended for POTS, who I saw at the London Cardiovascular Clinic in Harley Street. I was very apprehensive after 10 years of seeing numerous specialists in search of an answer to my many and various symptoms. Dr. Boon Lim put me at ease immediately and was very pleasant, polite, thorough and knowledgeable. He diagnosed me with POTS, explained in great detail the mechanisms of this condition and provided me with a suggested management plan. He was very positive and provided me with hope that if I stick with the management plan, things should get better and that it would be a slow but steady improvement. I was very impressed and would highly recommend Dr.Boon Lim, it was a pleasure seeing him.

Very polite, connects immediately with patient, super knowledgeable and hit the nail on the head with my diagnosis. He is a young Consultant who needs to teach older consultants. The way he explains things would make him a great professor.
