The world i would use to describe Dr. Vivek is "cool guy". Its an awesome very approachable person. I had a colonoscopy with him and everything was very easy. He explained to me the procedure in details and made things very easy for me.(i am very anxious when it comes to do medical procedures). His attitude towards his staff(nurses etc) is superb. I saw him on few occasions at London Bridge hospital.

My experience with Mr Datta has been excellent. In my first consultation with him, he was able to explain in simple terms how the procedure will work and the possible risks. He really took the time to address any concerns I had and answer all my questions. As someone that has had other surgeries, i left my meeting with him reassured and feeling absolutely in good hands. Thank you very much.
Mr Datta is professional as well as caring. He always takes time to explain a procedure and answer any questions. I have been a patient of his for the last eight years and have always had confidence in his approach.
Mr. Datta was very detailed and patient in the explanation of the possible issues from the symptoms my father was experienced and provided further guidance on exams to have a thorough check up. I also need to thank him for his availability and how everything was handled very quickly. Thank you!
Mr Datta is extremely personable and despite being unbelievably busy, always made time to personally visit every day whilst in hospital. He is very easy to talk to and his skills are exceptional. Have found Mr Datta to be very honest and will not offer promises or guarantees which is true professionalism but does make you feel that you are in good hands. No negatives, this man is a legend.
