In addition, he is one of the most highly rated doctors by patient reviews, who frequently comment on his empathy, communication skills and knowledge and clinical acumen and operative skill. His junior team members rated him highly for education and training, particularly in the approach to the patient’s history, and in the skilled key-hole surgical ablation approach to treat arrhythmias.
He has a strong focus on advancing science – publishing over 80 peer-reviewed articles (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term=lim-pb), and presenting over 400 abstracts across various national and international meetings.

He has a major clinical focus on history-taking from patients in a holistic manner, often advocating education and understanding of disease processes to enable self-help strategies to be maximally-effective. He believes the best strategies for managing illness starts with the patient’s own acceptance and ownership of disease, and he instils hope of a meaningful recovery.
