ABOUT DR. MAHESH DHANJEE

HOW DR. DHANJEE WORKS
Your Correct Diagnosis
When Dr. Dhanjee meets new patients the most important task is to ensure your symptoms have been fully listened to and diagnosis has been made correctly.
While some patients present with features suggestive of certain diagnosis including cancer, its confirmation is critical as everything flows from this. This would help you to consider any treatment options more confidently with trust.
Typically this stage involves:
- Taking your medical history,
- Performing a focussed, appropriate examination,
- Arranging relevant and useful investigations,
- Reviewing all medical evidence to ensure the best possible advice can be provided and your concerns have been addressed.
Once the diagnosis is made Dr. Dhanjee will go through the pros and cons of all the treatment options and come up with personalised treatment plan.
Dr Dhanjee’s Pledge
I pledge to all my patients:
Should the advice for a non-surgical approach not result in a good quality of life or not be appropriate, I will consider surgery if deemed to be of benefit.
I will explain all the potential options and help you to choose the best treatment together tailored to your wish and needs and treat you with utmost care and respect.
