    I cannot possibly say enough to express what an incredible surgeon and medical profession Miss Deol is. From the very start, I was treated with respect, the time was taken to listen to my concerns and questions - but at the same time, I felt hugely reassured that she was in total control and I simply felt extremely well looked after. Her bedside manner is the best I have ever seen in my experiences across private and nhs treatment. I have known other family members and friends who have gone through the experience of a breast cancer surgeon but from discussions, it was clear to me that Miss Harleen Deol was quite exceptional. At all times, I felt quite convinced that I had the very best expertise and support provided to me.

    From the moment I met Miss Deol I felt confident and calm at a time when I was feeling very vulnerable and distressed. She is welcoming and professional and has guided me through all the procedures and treatments for my Triple Negative breast cancer. She operated to remove the cancer and performed bilateral mastectomies. I then had Chemotherapy for 4 months. She then advised me and referred me on to a surgeon for delayed DIEP reconstruction a year later. I am now almost 6 years on from diagnosis and cannot thank Miss Deol and her team enough for looking after my husband and I at such a stressful time of our lives. I have no hesitation in recommending Miss Deol and her team at The Rivers Hospital.

    Miss Deol had a lovely calm approach, welcoming questions and answering all in simple understandable terms. Nothing was too much trouble and you felt very at ease with her. Miss Deol was very happy to ensure you fully understood the information being provided each visit. Miss Deol made this whole experience far better, she was confident we could deal with this and that gave me assurance that she knew what needed to be done. I had full faith in her and the team.

    From the moment I entered her room Miss Deol was excellent - she immediately put me at ease and explained the process of everything that would happen. I felt she listened to me and gave me reassurance about my concerns. She also considered wider issues which could impact my symptoms and gave me recommendations for those so I felt she had a very broad outlook on my overall health and well-being. I could not recommend her highly enough.

    My breast cancer diagnosis came as a real shock and totally flawed me. I am so pleased though to have had Miss Deol guide and support me throughout the treatment and follow up care. Without fail she has been supportive, reassuring and genuinely kind. I feel very fortunate to have benefitted from Miss Deol’s expert, professional care and I regularly recommend her to friends who are concerned about their breast health.

    I went to see Miss Deol at a very scary and vulnerable time after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She explained everything and really looked after me, I found her very warm person. Following surgery I still look and feel like me, what she has done is amazing.
