Prof Vaidya is both deeply knowledgeable and has a wonderful caring manner. He is always willing to patiently answer all my questions. The care given to me by himself  (and his team) has been exemplary and delivered in a professional and reassuring manner that instills confidence. The thoughtful post treatment provided has helped me recover mentally as well as physically.

Professor Vaidya is an excellent professional, with a deep knowledge on Breast Cancer and he is among the inventors of the innovating IORT, a technic I highly recommend to other breast cancer patients. My personal experience was truly beyond any expectation. The relief I mainly feel is that this IORT technic can be used again (in the case of a breast cancer recurrence), together with lumpectomy, instead of a mastectomy that is the only sad way, after following previously even once, the normal long radiotherapy sessions procedure. Also, lucky to be diagnosed on stage 1, with Professor Vaidya by my side, I felt a blind trust and I honestly experienced the minimum to none, change in my breast after both lumpectomy AND IORT procedures. Truly no change today, 4 months post surgery, no pain, cosmetic excellent with not the slightest change of a normal breast .. apart from 2 parallel small scars near my armpit, that are slowly disappearing, making me even to feel the whole experience, truly as a dream. To be honest the only negative experience I had was a luck of communication with the administration part/secretary in the very beginning (and that service must be upgraded), and due to my initial diagnosis panic I had to disturb the Professor directly to whatsapp or telephone, but he was always responsive, kind and their for me. A strong supporting PA is essential and MUST BE THERE fully responsive in my humble opinion, especially during the initial stage of a breast cancer patient, with a surgeon. Yet, Professor’s result is indeed excellent, the surgery margin cleaning done perfectly and finally thats all that matters! In general I feel truly grateful and blessed to met Professor Vaidya and I will always keep on to my consultations with him, in the future.

Consulting Professor Vaidya how a medical consultation should be! He is smiling, welcoming and reassuring, putting things in context. You are never rushed and, as an academic (in another field!) I appreciate hearing about recent relevant clinical research. He is clearly a superb clinician.

Professor Vaidya showed great empathy and emotional intelligence when interacting with me and clearly understood the psychological impact of a breast cancer diagnosis. He was very patient and explained the treatment clearly. I feel that I received an excellent surgical outcome with a very good cosmetic result. In follow-up visits Prof has taken time to discuss my adjuvant therapy and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. I hold Prof Vaidya in high regard.

I've been seeing Professor Vaidya now for 4 years following my initial diagnosis back in November 2015. I was very, very lucky to find him. What I didn't realise at the time is that he comes as part of an absolutely fantastic team, but it is he who is at the forefront of your treatment plan. He's exceptionally kind, considerate and treats one with total and utter respect (as do the team he works with). He's always appreciated and accommodated my need for information and provides me with tonnes of information. He's just an absolutely lovely man, who really cares.

When I was told I had breast cancer, I thought my life had ended . There was a mad search for who was the best doctor to treat me in the world. A number of names were given to me, I chose Proff Vaidya from the day I met him I felt safe and put my life in his hands. It is the start of my 5 th year and all through he has looked after me like a baby, mentor and guide. I don’t know of any one so kind gentle and reassuring , not forgetting brilliant with such active a mind and passion for more and more improvement in treating breast cancer. Thank you Proff for the quality of life you have given me.

Professor Vaidya's care and support has been invaluable, over and above being a highly skilled and experienced surgeon. He always makes time for you whatever the time of day. You feel that he is on your side and sympathetic to you as a patient, listening carefully and recommending a course of action and treatment that is in tune with your own wishes.
