What our Patient's say...
I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you to my surgeon Dr Baker, for the fantastic care that I received and for listening to me during the whole process. The result is beyond words and I couldn't be happier, you have given me something I never could have dreamed of, a positive self/body image!. Needless to say if you are contemplating a breast augmentation like myself, rest assured the skill and talent of Mr Baker will not leave you disappointed.
Professional, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. I felt as though I was in the safe hands throughout. Would highly recommend to anyone considering surgery. Thank you to Cat my nurse, Richard my surgeon and the rest of the team. So pleased with my results!
My experience with the Harley Medical Group, was informative, professional and the care I received during and after my surgery was exceptionally.
I'm extremely happy with the results, and Richard ensured I was well informed before I underwent surgery what to expect, I even received a call the following day to check on my progress which was a lovely touch.
Thank you for the exceptional care I received, I would certainly recommend the Harley Group as you made my experience first class!
Professional service with friendly staff. Excellent results.
Great service from initial consultation to now (4 weeks post op!), any queries I have had the team have always been happy to help. I am feeling so much happier and have more confidence since my surgery, excited to be fully healed in another few weeks and be able to show off my new body and new found confidence. I have already highly recommended the Harley Medical Group to friends and family, from clinic staff to the surgeon and hospital staff it has been a simple, stress free time and I can't thank them enough.
They are also friendly and welcoming.
