    Professor Jayant is a rare human who clearly understands the necessity of considering the feelings and concerns of his patients as a priority. He is undoubtedly skilled but it is his mesh of skill, care and concern which has made my surgical experience remarkably carefree! I have felt swaddled in care, expertise and understanding.

    Professor Vaidya is such a caring and kind person- just the sort of surgeon you would want to be looked after by. He was able to take the time to explain things very well and I felt very safe and happy to be under his care. I genuinely couldn’t have asked for anything more and I will be eternally grateful to him.

    I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 month ago. After 3 weeks of the diagnosis I was operated on. Before and after the operation the Professor explained everything in detail. It all went smoothly and quickly. I was very afraid of the surgery. But looking back I should not have been, I was in good hands. My tumor was 25mm, but my breast is as beautiful as before. I am glad Professor Vaidya was my surgeon. After a month I do not have any pain, and all the scars have almost healed. The professor keeps following up. So I would recommend Prof Vaidya to anybody who is in this situation.

    One of my best experience, I have approached him and his team, on a Sunday morning, without any hope that I will receive a call back and an online appointment, for that day- this, for me ,was very reassuring. During the appointment, Professor Vaidya was very calm, he listen and allowed me to speak about all my anxiety relating to my breast issues and to my general health too, looking for the cause and the diagnostic- being pleasantly investigative, simultaneously offering the peace of mind that I am well looked after. He is very knowledgable, vigilant and wise.

    Professor Vaidya has been the most caring and professional surgeon. His attention before and after my treatment has been exemplary. I cannot get over the fact that even though I had a wide excision my breast still seems the same size and it is hardly noticeable thst I have had anything removed. The outcome has been successful both surgically and cosmetically.
