I saw Miss Deepika Akolekar on 8th October 2021 following ongoing concerns with redness & swelling on my left breast since May & after taking 2 courses of antibiotics, which although reduced the redness the swelling remained. Following another examination & scan I now feel reassured by Miss Akolekar, who showed kindness & professionalism that it isn't IBC.

Everything about Miss Deepika Akolekar’s appointment put me at ease when I was feeling a certain amount of trepidation. I was taken seriously but treated with kindness and professionalism.
