Opting to have Plastic Surgery is a significant decision for people and Oliver adopts a patient focused approach to his practice:
“Providing a clear, honest and balanced opinion in a supportive and sympathetic environment is the key to enabling patients to make the best choices about their treatment.”
"I enjoy listening to patients stories, questions and concerns and I aim to explain things clearly and simply with the help of pictures or diagrams. The modern age makes it easier to communicate and I am always happy to have ongoing dialogue with patients over the phone or email where appropriate."
Mr Harley practices at locations in Sussex, Kent, Surrey and Central London and his work is a mixture of private patient care and NHS choose and book / eReferral System cases.
"From my initial consultation through to the post-care appointments, the service I received from Oliver Harley and his team was exceptional. My stay was comfortable, the food was fantastic, the nurses were delightful and the results were beyond what I'd expected. I would not hesitate to use Mr Harley and the McIndoe Centre again." LL.
