I was able to obtain an appointment with Mr Lim quickly at Somerfield Hospital and his secretary arranged for me to have a MRI scan at The Spire Hospital Walderslade. Mr Lim was most helpful as was his secretary by arranging other appointments speedily. I was able to discuss my problem when the results were to hand and he fully explained his views and the way forward . I fully appreciate the way in which I was treated both by Mr Lim and his secretary during the course of a worrying period.
My daughter was seen by Dr Lim at the Alexander Spire hospital. He swiftly made a judgement about her ongoing sinus condition and surgery was booked within a few weeks. My only criticism is that it was difficult to get hold of Mr Lim’s secretary when my daughter had a flare up in the interim, despite using the email address provided.
I found Mr Lim to be very welcoming. He showed great interest in finding out background information concerning my condition. The appointment was unhurried & I felt very confident in his ability to identify the root cause.
Dr Lim explained exactly how the operation would work at my consultation and answered any questions I had about the procedure. On the day he came into my room before he operation to ensure I was comfortable with the plans to see if I had any last minute questions. The op went smoothly and I recovered well. At my post check up he informed me that I'd healed well and was happy for me to be signed off. He was very informative and professional throughout. I would recommend Dr Lim .
