The treatment and care I received from Mr. Lim and his team was excellent. Initial contact to obtaining an appointment was very fast and he was very accommodating to my needs and personal schedule. Communication was excellent throughout leaving me very comfortable with what to expect at all stages of the procedure. The surgery was clearly performed with great skill and care as I was left with no pain and very little discomfort during the immediate and longer term recovery. A first class service.
