Doctor Vellayan has changed my life. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable and thorough, she is so compassionate and kind and she continually goes out of her way to help me. She listens to all of my concerns and empathises in a way that no other Doctor has. She strives to find a solution every time I see her and refuses to let me be uncomfortable or in pain - she helps in every way she possibly can. If it weren’t for her we would never have had our little girl and we now have another little bub on the way. Doctor Vellayan is a superstar and I would not hesitate to recommend her.
I was thoroughly impressed by Dr Vellayan's professionalism, knowledge, surgical skills and empathy. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services and I would definitely go and see her again if necessary. My only regret is that I didn't have a consultation with her years ago when I first started showing menopausal symptoms as this may have prevented the problems I experienced this year (2018). As a self funding patient I thought that her fees were very reasonable and I was happy to pay for such excellent care. From the initial consultation through to surgery and then extensive follow up communications I cannot fault her. Thanks again for taking care of me, Nicole.
Dr Vellayan is one of the kindest ladies and doctors that I've ever met, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for advice/treatment. I never felt rushed at all during our initial appointment, she listened to me and talked me through everything for almost an hour. During treatment I had a few questions which I emailed over to Dr Vellayan, her response time was fantastic and helped put my mind at ease.
Dr Vellayan is an outstanding Consultant. From my first appointment she made me feel completely at ease. She explained fully what/why tests were needed. Allowing me lots of opportunity to ask questions. Prior to my surgery Dr Vellayan let me know she was happy for me to email her if I had any concerns/questions. On the day of surgery Dr Vellayan was reassuring and again explained what would be involved. Post op Dr Vellayan came to see me to explain how surgery had gone and an initial diagnosis. With an appointment to follow for my results. Again Dr Vellayan said I could contact her by email if I had an questions about my recovery and she kept in regular contact. . At my post op appointment Dr Vellayan took the time to explain my results fully and was very reassuring regarding my post op recovery. . I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Vellayan.
I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Vellyan and her team. I was quite nervous when I went into the hospital but the whole time I was there I was treated kindly and put totally at ease. Very pleased with the whole experience
