Very professional, knowledge and thorough in explaining all options available to me with regards to treatment and prognosis. Additionally, very responsive with follow up questions and email correspondence. Highly recommend Dr. Vashi

Dr Vashi is a very professional and caring physician. He has excellent communication skills and went into detail on my condition/problem, options for treatment, etc. He assured that I became well informed and he definitely helped me in making a treatment decision. I chose surgery as my treatment choice and his follow up monitoring and communication was outstanding. I judged his technical skills as excellent by the procedures success and fast recovery I experienced. As a retired Hospital CEO Ive had a professional life of working with and assessing physicians, and I can state that Dr Vashi is among the best in quality, technical skills, and character.

Had a Robotic Prostatectomy with Doc Vashi. He is one of the best in the Jacksonville area for that specific procedure . 6 weeks after surgery I am 90% at pre-op levels. I definitely would recommend him to anybody.

Dr. Vashi has done a terrific job treating and curing my prostate cancer through skillful use of robotic surgery and careful and thoughtful follow up. I hope men will continue to have PSA tests and, if needed, consult with Dr. Vashi about appropriate treatment.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer 3 years ago. After doing thorough research on what my best options were, I chose robotic surgery. I chose Dr. Vashi to do the surgery because of his excellent reputation and extensive experience with robotic surgery. The surgery and recovery went very well. Robotic surgery minimal incisions as a result the recovery is much easier and faster than open surgery. Dr. Vashi is the most professional and skilled doctors I have seen in my 72 years.

I selected Dr. Vashi because of his experience with the robotic prostatectomy procedure. He is a total professional and my surgery went very well. Follow-up and recovery also was just as I expected, no complications at all. I highly recommend Dr. Vashi.

Traveled from Daytona for prostate removal with Dr Vashi after extensive research and visits to Orlando and Mayo Clinic. He saw me for 1 month after surgery then released me to my local urologist. He has followed up twice since by phone. My results are much better than my other physician friends. I never told him I was a physician and he treated me with the utmost respect

I have been a patient of Dr Vashis for many years, since he first came to McIver. He is, without a doubt, a highly skilled and dedicate physician, and I have to credit his adeptness with robotic surgery for a positive outcome from prostate cancer. During this difficult period, Dr. Vashi gave me a sense of comfort and confidence. And, i might add, recovery was a breeze. Without hesitation, I can confidently endorse Dr Vashi as an outstanding member of our medical community. He is a life saver.

At age 59, I was diagnosed with prostrate cancer in its early stage. My urologist provided alternatives, watch your symptoms and do something later, radiation, the targeted radiation (pro?????) and surgery, either open or robotic. I did some research and determined I would go with robotic surgery. My urologist recommended Dr Vashi. I reviewed Dr Vashis on line batting average and he was in the top 10%, which was excellent and I believe underrated his skills. More review of my options were done with Dr Vashi and I reinforced my decision to go with robotic surgery. Early, Dr Vashi was professional and personal, with a very even and good bedside manner. .He discussed the expected outcomes of the surgery as well as the unexpected outcomes. My surgery went as perfectly described or better. I was out of the hospital with one overnight, walking the same day of surgery. I was released the next day with a catheter. I have been out of surgery for 10 days and had the catheter out today. I can say that, to date, this has been the easiest surgery and quickest recovery of major surgery. I believe my exceptional outcome was due to a great surgeon, Dr VASHI and my physical preparation of 4+ months of conditioning. I would recommend Dr Vashi without reservation. I believe he is one of the best in his field.

Bedside manner and patience in explaining my diagnosis of prostrate cancer and options. Robotic surgery went great. email follow up before and after surgery was great. His Personal attention to detail not seen in a lot of doctors offices these days very refreshing. Toni, his office assistance/nurse also great.

I spent the last 2 years taking care of my elderly mother. During that time she had 11 different doctors. Dr Vashi was my mothers favorite as he was really the only one that talked to her. The other doctors were thorough and communicated well with me, but Dr vashi would always address my mother 1st and try to explain the situation to her despite her slight dementia and confusion
July 02 , 2013
Dr. Vashi is not only a wonderful and skilled surgeon (I had robotic prostate removal), but also a compassionate and understanding person. He explained the procedure in detail, answered all my questions and followed up with excellent care. His nurse Toni and the staff at McIver Clinic are professional and also compassionate. I would highly recommend Dr. Vashi for any urologic problems or cancer treatment.
October 04 , 2011
I was referred to the McIver Clinic about a year and a half ago due to an elevated PSA level, and have been seeing Dr. Vashi for monitoring each six months since then. He has made the process as pleasant as it could possibly be, and has been very generous in taking the time to answer questions so that I feel fully informed. I would be very confident in Dr. Vashiâ??s skills if a procedure is required in the future, and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
September 12 , 2014
Dr. Vashi is caring, professional, detailed, good communicator,and a good listener. I would highly recommend him for surgical procedures.
March 20 , 2012
Dr Vashis confidence in performing the robotic prostate removal was very reassuring. The recovery from the operation was faster than the literature had advertised. Dr Vashi is very personable and caring. If you are considering robotic surgery I highly recommend Dr Vashi.

I moved from Boston and most of my doctors are at major academic medical centers- Mayo, Harvard hospitals. The only private practice physician that I see is Dr Vashi. He is of as high or higher caliber than any of the other physicians I have ever seen. When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer I traveled to Johns Hopkins and Mayo clinic but in the end I chose Dr Vashi to do my surgery- I have been nothing but pleased and impressed by the care both during and after the operation.

I was referred to the McIver clinic after my GP found elevated PSA readings. What a wonderful referral! I could not have been more satisfied with the whole staff of the McIver practice, from the front office, to the nurses and physicians. Truely professional. At each step during the diagonosis and election of treatment all took the time to present options and answer any and all questions with personal interest. I elected to treat my cancer by having a robot assisted radical prostetectomy. Dr Vashi was my surgeon and during the whole period was compassionate, available and, most importantly, looking for results that would not only address the cancer, but ensure quality of life issues were a key component of treatment and recovery. Im happy to say the surgery went splendidly (hats off to the staff at St Vincents as well). I was back to work in 10 days, no incontinence issues from the moment the catheter was removed and my ability to attain an erection was preserved. I could not have been happier with the outcome of a difficult situation.

I was facing major surgery for BPH with a six week recovery. Dr. Vashi said the problem could be corrected with greenlight laser surgery. It was and only one week after surgery Im doing great.
September 09 , 2016
I am 69 and had postponed prostate surgery, waiting for a better procedure. Turp was out. Physical symptoms required action. Dr. Vashi, with McIver, and I decided green laser vaporization was right for me. Had it in early May 2015. Used Pace center at Baptist, Jacksonville. I found I had wasted time waiting for a better method. Green Light Laser was the better procedure. Good followup, Recovery fast. Symptoms gone. Very Happy.
May 28 , 2015
Dr. Vashi was extremely professional, knowledgeable and caring throughout the entire process. His ability to relate to me and my family was very helpful during this time. He is a very skilled doctor combined in a very special human being. I would recommend to him to all.
February 08 , 2014
Dr. Vashi is a true professional. He explained exactly what the procedure entailed and what the recovery would be. The surgery went exactly as planned. Follow up was easy and always on time. His confidence in his work was extremely calming during a difficult time.

Dr Vashi was very knowledgeable and patient. highly recommend
December 24 , 2020
It has been approximately 15 months since my surgery and I have had exceptional results. I have had no side effects from the surgery. There is nothing I could do before, that I cannot do now physically. I am 61 and race motocross, do CrossFit and workout 5-7 days a week. The only issue is the redevelopment of the my sexual function is slow. I would highly recommend this doctor.

I was referred to Dr. Vashi for treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) two years ago. He evaluated my condition (significant enlargement which restricted urinary flow rate) and recommended tissue removal with green laser. The procedure was completed the next day on an outpatient basis. I was fully healed within a week, and have had normal flow rate since the operation, with no complications. I am very happy to have had the procedure, and would recommend Dr. Vashi to anyone needing urological attention (I have taken my wife to Dr. Vashi for treatment of kidney stones).

I was recently diagnosed with early prostate cancer and I underwent a robotic prostatectomy with Dr. Vashi! I was continent and still have my potency. He has a great bedside manner and is a very capable and caring person.
August 03 , 2010
I was always skeptical of well known or top doctors as I always found them arrogant or uncaring. Dr Vashi is the exception. He is knowledgable, compassionate and has a great sense of humor. If you have prostate cancer there is no better place to visit in the country!!
February 11 , 2011
I am a 55 yr old male that was diagnosed with prostate cancer on Aug. of 2015. Dr. Vashi, explained to me my options & was extremely professional! I had surgery to remove my prostate 2 weeks later. My procedure went smoothly and it was not as painful as I anticipated.The timeline that Dr. Vashi gave me for recovery was right on the money! Now I am cancer free and 95% full recovery! Thank you Dr. Vashi!
August 23 , 2016
Dr. Vashi preformed a prostatectomy via Devinci robotic surgery. Coming up on my 2 year check up. My PSA has remained -0-..which indicates that my cancer is no longer there with the prostrate removed. Great bedside, listens and answers questions. Very short recovery time.. Best way to have the sugery. Would recommend to any family member..
January 30 , 2017
Was diagnosed with prostate cancer and initially went to Mayo. Came for a third opinion and am glad I did. Dr vashi was the most complete at explaining my options and after doing my research very qualified. I had prostate surgery and have done great. Most important to me was the time spent and personal attention from Dr Vashi including a call at home a few days after surgery. His nurse Toni is also great
December 11 , 2010
I interviewed several urologiest but was impressed with Dr. Vashi because he was present durung the entire operation. I had my prostrate removed and have had almost no leakege problems after the surgery. Nerves were removed on one side of the gland but I can still get an erection. I have had two follow up PSA readings and they are both O.
September 14 , 2010
Went to several doctors regarding a urinating problem I had and was actually forced to insert a catheter in myself for years. I had been to several reputable institutions including Mayo with no relief. I am now able to urinate by myself and my life is changed
July 28 , 2010
Top doc for prostate cancer in Jacksonville. He operated on my brother with robotic prostate surgery and I went in for the same. My cancer was different and we came up with a plan to watch the cancer. Completely explained and very knowledgeable. Very friendly to boot

I have been coming to this clinic for over twenty years to Dr Dalton who passed away suddenly a couple of years ago. I have since been assigned to Dr Vashi and fortunately and unfortunately my experience does not mirror other reviewers. I have suffered with an enlarged prostate for a number of years but fortunately my numbers have been good and the prostate has been smooth. I have been doing the psa test and going to see the Dr once a year for a review and digital exam.. On my most recent yearly appointment Dr Vashi came into the office and told me that my numbers were so low I no longer need to do a psa test and to just come see him once a year He did not review my numbers on the psa test and did not do a digital exam. I felt like he was very dismissive of me as he was in and out of the office in less than two minutes. While I am very pleased that my numbers are very low, I am not comfortable with the recommendation of never doing a psa test again and while its not something to look forward to I think a yearly appointment with a urologist should at a minimum consist of a digital exam. I will probably seek another urologist I feel more comfortable with. My friends have suggested that at my age of 76 the new healthcare law deems it not expedient to do future testing of me from a financial standpoint. Makes me wonder if they are right.

Caused me to leak after surgery. Send me to his friend Dr Shah he gave me a serious bladder infection.
