I am very grateful to Dr Batel for seeing me through my treatment with compassion, patience and understanding. I have a long term lung condition and was anxious about my operation to treat breast cancer by wide local excision. Dr Batel talked me through every stage of the process honestly and took my concerns seriously. Appointments were never rushed and I felt fully part of the decision making process. I can't thank him enough
Polite, helpful and treated me with respect. It is obvious that he understood the trauma of discovering that I had breast cancer and operated in a way that minimised the effect of the surgery from a cosmetic point of view and from the discomfort of stitches.
I cannot give enough praise to Mr Betal for his kindness and support when I was given the very unexpected news that I had Breast cancer. He explained in detail what surgery was involved and listened to all my fears of the diagnosis and gave answers to all my questions. I see him on a regular basis at the moment as I need to have fluid removed from under my arm where lymph nodes were removed. Once again he has explained this minor problem and given his support and also answered all my queries. The NHS should be extremely proud to have Mr Betal as part of their team. I cannot thank him enough.
I honestly don’t know how I would have survived breast cancer without Mr Betal. Medically speaking, the work he did was outstanding. Even other doctors have commented favourably on his work. However, where he really excels is with his compassion and understanding and his ability to listen and understand while explaining complicated and emotional treatment plans. My trust in him never once wavered. I was diagnosed a year ago today with multifocal grade 2 ductal carcinoma. I’m thankful for Mr Betal’s kindness and expertise.
