Competent surgeon, caring individual, as are all associated with the practice. I was there as a follow up on a earlier visit. Dr Deal spent sufficient time with me to ensure I went home happy.

Dr. Deal is amazing! He listens and cares about everything you say. I had a double mastectomy, so I will be with Dr. Deal for exams until he retires and I feel very comfortable with that. He is extremely smart and I feel very blessed to have found him.

I have never experienced a doctor as empathetic as Dr. Deal. He wants to give you the best outcome possible, and cares that youare comfortable with the planned procedure and understand everything that will happen. And although this is very important, you should know that he is an incredibly skilled surgeon. He performed a lumpectomy after breast cancer treatment, and you cannot tell I had anything done. His skill and his caring made me feel whole again.

I was kind of afraid because I believed that I would live without a procedure, but Dr Deal and his staff changed this being very lovely and attentive and patient with me. He made me understand everything and gave me the peace that I needed to go trough this.

Dr. Deal is outstanding! His “bedside manner” is the best I have experienced. When he stopped by to see me shortly before surgery, I felt so peaceful and assured by his visit; I have never felt that calm before prior surgeries. His entire staff, medical and administrative, are also totally committed to providing professional care. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience throughout the surgery process.

I definitely would recommend Clifford Deal for General Surgery. He took his time to explain exactly what he would do on the day of surgery, he projects the confidence I look for in a surgeon (I am sorry to say I have had 10 different surgeries in the past 10 years), he has an excellent bedside manner, and he did a great job with my surgery. I would go back to him if needed, but he did such a great job it looks like I won't need to see him again!

Would 100% recommend Dr Deal for breast surgery. He is kind and compassionate, I was scared to death of my cancer dx but he talked to my husband and I for over an hour reviewing my options and giving me the knowledge I needed to move forward. He called me on the phone to answer my questions after the initial meeting. His nurse and staff are superb. Dr Deal is the best of the best!!

Dr. Deal was a compassionate and caring doctor. He thoroughly explained my health situation and prior to his performing surgery for me, the need for him to seek counsel from another specialist who has treated me in the past year. As a result of his prompt consultation with that specialist I was given an appointment with the other specialist within 2 days. Thanks Dr. Deal for being straight forward with me concerning my surgical needs and promptly laying out a treatment plan. .

Dr. Deal took the time I needed to be ready and feel comfortable for surgery. Not only is he excellent and knowledgable surgeon, he has compassion and good bed side manners. I would recommend him highly if one needs an excellent surgeon.
