My consultation with Dr Boon Lim was extremely useful and rewarding. He took a great deal of time to explain to me in detail the nature of my illness and the treatment options available to me. He instilled a lot of confidence and I felt so much better merely listening to his advice. He is no doubt an authority on Atrial Fibrillation and an expert on the latest treatment techniques.
I received an appointment very promptly once I was referred to Dr Lim. I was traveling a long way to see him so was glad to hear that when he received my notes in advance that he was allocating longer to see me due to my complicated history. He was very thorough, emphatic and patient throughout the consultation and seems eager to help. The follow-up since the appointment has also been very positive. Thank you Dr Lim!
An excellent doctor who normalised what was initially a very frightening time. He clearly explained my diagnose and the treatment. Because of Dr Lim I got the right diagnose, right treatment and I am able to enjoy everyday healthy. Positivity and the outstanding work is the only think that I can say for Dr Lim and his team. I can't thank enough. Highly reccomend Dr Lim Thank you Mrs G. B.
