Being expats who are quite new to the UK, it is very daunting to be first time parents with few people we can refer to. Dr Yuksel has been extremely helpful, informative and kind to us and of course, our baby. Being easily concerned and worried about every little hiccup we experience with our baby, Dr Yuksel welcomes and encourages us to ask questions and discuss any concerns we have. While he will share as much detail as he can with every diagnosis during visits, he makes sure we as parents understand the situation / condition in order to take care of our baby with as much knowledge as we can. We also appreciate that he will not hesitate to refer his patients to specialists / second opinion when the situation calls for in order to make sure the child gets the best advice and treatment. Truly is the best Dr we have met so far for our baby!


Dr. Yuksel completed my daughter's first check in the hospital after birth and we liked him so much she has remained under his care for the past 18 months. My little girl suffered from both reflux and cow's milk sensitivity which was very stressful for us. Dr. Yuksel sorted it out immediately and put us on a regimen that worked. He inspired confidence in my husband and I which helped us sleep at night knowing we were doing all the right things to help our little girl. He has a solution for everything and it is astounding how well he knows children, what to do for them and when. He as helped me with all my questions no matter how simple or complex with a smile and great patience. His PA Hayley is amazing as well! Excellent.


Dr Bulend Yuksel I have triplet boys who are now aged 7, and whom have been under the care of Dr.Yuksel since they were born on 14 December 2007. Since their birth, Dr Yuksel has treated the boys for many different and complex illnesses. One of these instances included referring one of my little boys (Ben)- when he was just 3 months old - to a cardiologist to confirm his suspected diagnosis that he had Kawasaki’s disease. Without Dr Yuksel being so diligent and thorough in his approach at that specific time, I cannot even consider the condition of Ben’s health and where we would be now. I always speak very highly of Dr Yuksel to everyone I meet, and over the course of time since the birth of the boys I have referred many people to him. He is a superb Paediatrician, whom is able to communicate very easily with parents and children alike, and has a very special quality in being able to put the latter at ease during his consultations.


Dr Yuksel has been treating my daughters since 2012 and not once have I felt disappointed by his care. It's easy to get an appointment for his clinic and there's never a long wait either. I've gone to him with a range of problems and straight away he knows what to do whether it's investigate, treat or refer to a colleague who specialises in a different area. It's also nice to see he genuinely cares for his patients and always wants to do right by them. I trust his judgement 110% and me and my husband are very thankful to have him look after our children.
