Having turned 60 I was increasingly suffering from the symptoms of Benign prostate enlargement (BPE) I did some research and found an amazing new technique from the US called UROLIFT which in turn led me to find Maya Harris Maya Harris has a fantastic patient manner, even putting me at ease with her warm, friendly, sense of humour seconds before the commencement of a cystoscopy. She has considerable expertise in urology methods old and brand new (as in the end I required a 'hybrid' combination of some tissue removal together with the minimally invasive 'stent' method of holding the prostate apart. Mrs Harris travelled to a Urolift seminar in the US shortly before my procedure and spent time asking many of her experience US peers for additional advice on my requirements. The procedure was very successful and Mrs Harris even gave me her personal mobile number in order to be able keep in touch over the weeks leading up to the six-week final consultation and sign off. Displaying much patience with my many texted questions regarding aspects of my recovery. All of my symptoms have gone and my life from that perspective has been turned around and a new lease of life delivered. I would strongly recommend Mr Maya Harris to anyone going through a similar experience - Phil Hall
No 'bedside manner' whatsoever. Very abrupt and I felt she had no time to listen to me. Perhaps her private patients took priority. After one of my procedures I was left in extreme pain and I felt that she did not care and she thought I was making it up. I had a stent inserted and when it came to removing it she said 'I could do it myself'. In fact, one of the nurses on the Ward helped me. After having another stent inserted on a second occasion, she removed it on the ward with no pain relief and she literally just yanked it out. To say it was painful is an understatement and the nurse noted this and thankfully gave me some oramorph. I will need ongoing care, but will ask to be referred to another specialist next time.
Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you had bad experience with me. I always strive to look after my patients to best of my ability both on NHS and in the private sector and your review is the evidence that I do not always succeed. I will reflect on it and will try harder in the future. Kind regards Maya
Mrs Harris was very friendly and polite with an excellent patient care style. She listened carefully to my description of my symptoms and gave me a clear and explicit diagnosis. She was very helpful and informative about the procedure I was to undergo and clearly outlined the likely outcomes, including possible negative consequences. On the day of the operation she was very calming and very caring after the completion of the procedure. This was a totally positive experience for me and I am very happy to recommend her to anyone with Urinary problems. I do not see any way in which she could improve her practice.
Having suffered from an enlarged prostate for over 12 years, I consulted Mrs. Harris a few months ago about the possibility of having a Urolift procedure as I had read that it is a minimally invasive procedure. She treated me with the greatest professionalism throughout and, after she had carried out a number of tests to see if I were suitable for the procedure, I had the surgery at Warwick Nuffield Health Hospital in June of this year. She explained the procedure to me in detail and was really excellent at following up my post-operative progress. Her whole approach is patient-centred and kind hearted. My progress has been excellent and even just a month or so after the procedure I am now almost entirely free of the symptoms which had been making life quite difficult for some time. My post-operative test results and review with Mrs. Harris showed that my condition has improved enormously. I now sleep through almost every night, and no longer have to plan my life round visits to the toilet. I have also been able to stop taking the medications which I had been taking for prostatic enlargement. These medications had had a variety of undesirable side-effects for me, and it is really good not to have to take them anymore. She and her team provided me with excellent care, and would not hesitate to recommend others with this problem to seek her advice. With many thanks, Peter Morgan
