Mr Anthony Peel
12th March 2018
I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at Barts in July 2017. I was seen by Mr Peel, and because it would take over a month to get an MRI at Barts I used my husband's private cover to go to the London Clinic.
Mr Peel has been brilliant. I started my career in the NHS so have worked with a lot of surgeons, but I have rarely come across someone so patient focused and empathetic. Mr Peel encouraged me to read up on the subject, took all of my questions seriously, and when I had worries (such as neck pain which made me panic about metastatic spread) acted quickly to get me the relevant checks, sometimes literally overnight. The staff around Mr Peel clearly rate him highly, which is always a good sign. I've just had my surgery, and am recovering really well, with far less pain that expected. He also clearly knows his subject - when I've looked him up, he's appeared as an expert witness at clinical malpractice cases.
I'm not sure how you'd get a better breast cancer surgeon!
