Mr Lim's manor and approach was very reassuring and my 11 year old son felt totally at ease with the treatment he received. We found Mr Lim to be very informative and helpful in terms of advising us on my son's condition and the follow-up treatment that may be required. At all times Mr Lim come across as caring and understanding which was very reassuring for my son and us as parents.

I was seen very promptly by Mr Lim who was very courteous in explaining the situation with my nose and his diagnosis for treatment. The procedure was undertaken with great care and did not involve any pain or mess. The whole thing was over within 20 minutes and I was reassured as to the likelihood of the bleeding not recurring any time soon. It is the second time that I have seen Mr Lim and I came away very satisfied.

Mr Lim is a lovely smiley man who instantly puts your worries at rest. I was seen promptly and everything was explained clearly. The hospital is warm and welcoming and all the staff looked after me in a professional but also cheerful manor. My ear operation was a lot more painful than I expected to recover over the few weeks after but the results to look ‘normal’ was well worth it. Thank you Mr Lim, big hug from me. X
