कैंसर हे नाव ऐकल की मनात प्रचंड भीति बसलेली असते आणि तो आजार आपल्याला झाला आहे हे समजल्यावर मनाची अवस्था झाली ती न सांगण्यापालिकडे ची होती. खूपच भीति होती. पण जेव्हा डॉ. चेतन देशमुख सरांच्या बरोबर पहिल्यांदा बोलले , त्यांनी त्याबद्द्लची भीति मनातून काढून टाकली. सगळे सकारात्मक विचार करायला सांगितले. कीमो थेरपी बद्दल माहिती देऊन कमित कमी त्रास होईल त्याबद्दल शाश्वती दिली आणि घडलेही तसेच मला केमो घेताना पहिल्यांदा, भीति वाटली नाही. नंतर ८ केमो कधी संपले हे समजले नाही. हे सगळे चेतन देशमुख सरांच्या सकारत्मक विचार सरणीमुळे घडले. आर्किड मधील स्टाफ देखील खुप चांगला आहे. जॉर्ज ब्रदर, स्मिता सिस्टर ह्यांचे मला खुप चांगले सहकार्य मिळाले . वेळोवेळी हसून, खेळून केमो घेताना वातावरण हलकफुलक करत असतात. त्यामुळे पेशेंट्स ना त्याचा खुप उपयोग होतो. त्यांनी खूपच चांगले सहकार्य केले. ऑर्किड्स मधील सर्वांची मी नेहमी ऋणी असेन.

Staff is kind and helping personally take care of patient. Dr. Koppiker and Dr. Deshmukh explains treatment process nicely. Chemotherapy day care is also nice staff. It is why second time occurrence of cancer, I came here again for treatment because of good treatment and nice staff behavior. I appreciate everyone for their work and good wishes for keep doing the good work

Everyone is very helpful and courteous. Very personalized and quick service.

On behalf of my other Mrs. Vibha Soni, I want to thank Dr. Koppiker Sir for his attention and support that he gave to my mother’s treatment. We were not aware about my mother’s treatment procedure but ‘Orchids’ staff helped us well. They supported and still they are supporting on various aspects of treatment, such as timely reporting, monitoring, observation, quick support whenever I call to hospital. Orchids staff is always dedicated to patient’s treatment. One more point I would like to add, the treatment cost is affordable and pocket friendly for us

Dr. Koppiker and Dr. Deshmukh are experts in the field of cancer treatment. At Prashanti Cancer Care Mission, the facility of day care treatment is very good. Patient is in safe hands. Staff is well experienced and very good at handling daycare unit. We felt confident when underwent the chemo treatment. We wish speedy recovery of every patient under their guidance.

Getting to know that you have breast cancer is the heartbreaking experience but thank God who reached me at Orchids Breast Cancer Clinic at right time, under right doctors and right time. From day 1, when I came to see the doctors, I was scared but once I met doctors and entire staff of clinic, I was confident that I will be fit and fine and go back to home. I am from Dt. Nashik. Soon I will go back and meet my family. Thank you so much. I don’t have words to thank you all the doctors and clinic staff.

Initially with the shock of mental stress, Dr. C.B. Koppiker sir guided with all due care and patience. Hats off to his skills with communicating the things, though life threatening the disease may feel for us. Dr. Chetan Deshmukh Sir also guided with the treatment and its effects, physical as well as mental/psychological. Staff at Orchids Clinic is very kind and helping with counselling of patient. Specially Smita Sister and Vandana Madam. We, all family really feel lucky enough to get treatment from Dr. Koppiker Sir and that too without any fear. Thank you all.

First of all thanks to Orchid. Dr. Koppiker and Dr. Deshmukh both are great. All staff is very caring. Day care facility is also very good. Its homely surrounding. Receptionist, nurses & George brother all of them are very cooperative

On 29th June I was diagnosed with left side breast cancer. Whole family was in a big shock until we met Dr. Koppiker. From the first visit and Sir’s kind nature made a positive change in me. I accepted my disease and looking forward to get out of it. Now my 4 major chemotherapy sessions are over and started with weekly chemos but due to cooperation and support of my family and Orchids family I am feeling very positive. Special thanks to Dr. Koppiker Sir, Dr. Chetan Deshmukh Sir, George Sir, Smita Ma’am for taking care of all the patients as their relatives. Thanks a lot to all!

As I am going through a tough phase of my life. Now this Orchid Breast Health Clinic is a part of my life’s tough phase. Sometimes one little assurance make you feel better and that I definitely found in all the doctors, sisters, brother and supporting staffs. They make me feel relax and with their support. I feel that everything is okay and with okay means everything will fall in place. At the beginning me and my husband were insecure about doing chemotherapy here but now we are satisfied that we took the right decision. Thanking all of them.

Getting to know that you have Breast Cancer is a heart breaking experience. I was completely shattered and was lost in many many thoughts. At this time of life, we need a team that can hold your hand and take your through the cancer. I met Dr. Koppiker and Laleh ma’am. They are more than anything I could ask for. Koppiker Sir is my God father. He is come into my life like n agel. His confidence and poise is superb. His knowledge is better than most of his cotempories and he is a gem of a person. I feel very safe and secure with him. Laleh ma’am is an amazing person. She can understand what exactly is going on in the patient’s mind. She is extremely caring and loving and I truly love the beautiful couple. My entire experience of surgery was extremely smooth and I did not even realise I had gone through something so big Dhar Sir was also energetic. I really like the energy of the team. Kane ma’am should also be mentioned, I liked the love with which she speaks to the patient. After the surgery came the chemotherapy. I met the next team then, Chetan Deshmukh Sir is another gem f the team. He speaks absolutely clearly to the point without any ambiguity. He knows exactly wht he needs to do and with a lot of confidence. I really like his humour. It is so impromptu. George is the one who makes you feel at home. He is fantastic, available for answering as many calls and at any time. His confidence and knowledge is too good. His personal touch with everyone is noteworthy. He makes sure all the women in the day care are well looked after and each one is made to feel at home. Without him I do not know I would have passed the chemo treatment. I don’t know how many like chemo treatment but I was looking forward to going to the chemotherapy. It was like a picnic and the place felt like a small family get together. I am still undergoing chemotherapy on a weekly basis. In the OPD section, Rebecca is very sweet lady. I adore her love, affection, patience and sweetness. She is a darling. Smeeta sister is a lovely girl, very energetic and always willing to answer as many questions we throw on her. Very knowledgeable and is gret at her work. She removed my drain so well, I did not feel a thing. She is very dedicated to her work and knows her stuff very well. She plns everything meticulously. She is a sweetheart. Vandana is also a sweet girl. Always smiling and guiding me well so that I can meet Sir at the right time. Rashami ma’am is a sweet lady to speak to. Always smiling. Ruth ma’am is also a sweet girl. Not to forget the ‘watchman uncle’. He never forgets to smile whenever you come. I was always the first one to reach for chemo. He would never make me wait. He would open the unit for me. I am so blessed to be a part of ‘Prashanti Cancer Care Mission’ and ‘Orchid Centre’. The whole team has made my journey with cancer easier than I could expect and I am gratefeul and thankful to each and everyone from the bottom of my heart. I will be more than happy to help in any way I can. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!

The Day-1, when I was detected with Cancer, I got very scared. With hopes, on of my friend suggested Dr. Koppiker’s name for treatment under him. Dr. Koppiker and his staff and the team is just excellent. I thank all of them for giving me such a wonderful treatment during this tough period. Very nice facility and now, I am so happy to have a family like this. Special thanks to George for his work. Salute to all.

I would like to thank all the people from Orchid Breast Health for supporting us right from the beginning. This is the second time we detected breast cancer and they have been generous and helpful through every side of the treatment. Specially, George and Dr. Deshmukh Sir. I wish them all the best and will always be in their debt for helping us.

Right from the day of our first visit at Orchids, surprised to see the entire staff very supportive and cooperative. The fear of surgery/ treatment/ therapy, which we had in the initial stage could overcome easily. Dr. Koppiker, was very supportive, specially like to thank, Ms. Smeeta/ George and other nursing staff. Ms. Smeeta and Mr. George for their timely support.

Mr. Nivanjan
Gauri Damle.

I got detected with breast cancer in September, 2020. I was very scared and shattered with the diagnosis. I met Dr. Koppiker for consultation via a few contacts. The way he counselled patients, the way he supported patients all helped me take my diagnosis in a positive way. He explained the results of each test to me very properly. I was operated in October, 2020. I got treatment for chemotherapy from Dr. Deshmukh. All the staff was very cooperative and very caring, especially Smeeta sister and George

The service that I have received from Orchids Hospital is very excellent. Dr. Koppiker, Dr. Chetan and all the other staff is very friendly. They have explained the procedure in detail. Dr. Koppiker is a very talented doctor. My mother was scared when she came to know that she was detected with breast cancer. Dr. Koppiker & Dr. Deshmukh answered all our queries. I appreciate the entire staff, especially George and Smeeta sister.

Mr. Vijay Yedage
Jharna Shivani

Right from the first visit until the last chemotherapy, everything has been outstanding. The staff at day care has been lovely and very cooperative. Big thank you to Dr. Koppiker, Dr. Deshmukh & Dr. Dhar for their advice and promptness at every stage of the treatment. The team at Radiology has also been very quick and responsive. One thing that I do think could be better is the reception. Time management and communication from them was lacking precision. Many times they were busy discussing workload while patients were at day care. Overall, however, everything has been great. George and Smita have been phenomenal. Can’t thank them enough.

Service from all staff is very good. They are all very polite and helpful. Vandana has given very positive vibes always and George also was very calming while giving chemo. Dr. Koppiker is very friendly and helpful

My father Anil Kolhe had undergone colon cancer operation (Hemicolectomy) in Jehangir Hospital. Druing earlier screening we had approached Orchid Clinic as per recommendation of our relative Dr. Sherkar. We found Orchid Clinic very supportive and caring. All support staff is very good at patient handling. Dr. Koppiker is like God for us. He built confidence in my father to fight cancer. He and the staff have always supported us. They had attended all calls even during emergency very well. Dr. Chetan Deshmukh is very good and experienced in the field of Medicine. I would specially like to thank Smita Madam and George Sir for their support and help during chemotherapy session. Thank you for support and help.

Since the first day I stepped into Orchids, I have not had a single negative experience. Dr. Koppiker is the finest of the doctors and the guidance he provides is absolutely reassuring and secure. Special thanks to Dr. Chetan Deshmukh for being an absolute “Task Master’ by attending all my call at odd hours as well. The response time is amazing and I know I am in safe hands. 3 cheers for brother George for making the daycare feel like home and being very very patient, friendly, polite. Sister Smita, Sister Ruth “God Bless You”

I don't think of myself as a survivor, but instead as a winner.
When I was detected with breast cancer, I was devastated, but it was a wake up call where I realized that if I recovered I have to lead my life to the fullest, discover my potential, make real what I only dreamt of until then.
Luckily for me, I was in the care of a compassionate doctor and his team. After my surgery, chemo and radiation, I lost no time in turning my passion into a profession.

As I also wanted other women to be as fortunate as I have been, I joined Prashanti Cancer Care Mission to spread breast cancer awareness. I have made loads of friends via this platform that has filled my life with positivity and purpose.

Being a trained pastry chef, I went from a housewife to entrepreneur when I launched XOXO Desserts. The goal was to put my New York training into good use and add joy to people’s celebrations.

Besides baking, I got into physical activities, touched base with loads of old friends and let them know what they meant to me.
Now I look at every situation in a non-judgmental way and empathize with people.

An incredible life altering journey over the last five years has made me appreciate life - I am not a victim to cancer. I have won over cancer... and over my life. I am a true winner.

It was a frightening and a life altering day in the June of 2010 when I was told that I had breast cancer. Dr. Koppiker systematically laid out the procedure of treatment that would follow, and assured me that we had caught the cancer at an early stage. This had happened because I was aware of a change in my body and I did not delay my visit to a specialist. I was comforted to know that I was in very good hands and was being treated by one of the best in the field. With that assurance, a positive mindset and an unwavering family support, I went through the surgery and many rounds of chemotherapy.


It was tough, but through it all I managed to keep a very positive outlook and as far as possible to lead a normal lifestyle. At the one year anniversary of being cancer free, I decided to mark my victory by getting really fit and running a full marathon. I trained really hard and ran the 42 kms marathon successfully. Fitness and health became, and still are, of paramount priority in my life. I want to thank Dr. Koppiker and his team for being my constant companions through this amazing journey.


When I discovered a breast lump, I thought that it could be because of clogging of the milk as it had happened earlier while breastfeeding my child. But on examination, my doctor advised me to go for a sonography to investigate it further. However, after my husband’s death, I had 2 children and my mother-in-law to take care of and our financial condition was not good. I borrowed money from others for my sonography and after looking at the report I was told that the lump looked serious. Since they knew my financial condition, I was advised to meet Dr. Koppiker for further treatment. At the clinic, all my investigations including mammography, sonomammography and biopsy were conducted free of cost. When I was told that I am suffering from cancer, I was deeply disturbed and confused about my future.

I knew I would not be able to afford the treatment and at the same time, I had a family to take care of. But because of Dr. Koppiker, the expenses of my surgery, chemotherapy and radiation were taken care of. Sir is just like a God to me and it is because of him that I recovered soon. After my treatment, Laleh Madam hired me as a staff at Prashanti Cancer Care Mission. Not only did I get my health and my life back, but today I am able to support my family financially and emotionally because of Sir and Madam. I will be forever indebted to both of them.

I was diagnosed with 4th stage metastatic breast cancer in May 2015. During the initial shock and panic, I got myself admitted to another hospital in Pune where the doctors insisted I should go in for a port and aggressive chemotherapy without waiting for the full biopsy results. I checked myself out and came to Dr. Koppiker for a second opinion. What an emotional relief I got by his calming words. He said, ‘There is urgency, but no emergency! Let all test results come. Take your time, get other opinions if you wish to and start when you are ready’.


When the treatment protocol was finalized, I visited a few other hospitals before deciding to have the chemotherapy at Orchid’s. Dr. Koppiker’s and Dr. Deshmukh’s presence was a big factor of course, but the ‘non-hospital’ ambiance, the cheerful and friendly staff and the super efficient, deft-handed Brother George tipped the balance irrevocably in Orchid’s favour. I am glad about the decision! The day care administration of the chemotherapy on a comfortable recliner goes like a breeze. Today is the 38th IV administration of my chemotherapy and that too without having to use a port!


Every single day I am thankful that I have Dr. Koppiker in my life. According to me he is 'God' on earth, and Laleh an 'Angel' on earth. I couldn't think of a better doctor to be with and the entire team at ‘Orchid’s Breast Clinic’. It feels like you are a part of their family in their care.

I have encouraged my friends and family to go at ‘Orchid’s’ for an evaluation because I trust Dr. Koppiker 100%! Dr. Koppiker's positive approach and care has made me feel that cancer is a temporary disease. It is curable and I am going to be o.k. I had stage III ovarian cancer and I beat it and am now leading a happy, cancer free life. All this was possible only and only because of Dr. Koppiker and his team!” “For me, Doctor is God...helped beat stage III cancer.

I am Tahira Faruqui and I am a cancer patient. Laleh Ma’am and Dr. Koppiker have helped me financially by giving me major concessions in my treatment. I had lost all hopes when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. But Dr. Koppiker and the entire staff treated me really well. I personally want to thank Dr. Koppiker for being supportive. Prashanti Cancer Care Mission is a great initiative and gives a ray of hope to many to fight against this a life threatening disease.

I am Mrs. Saraswati Suryawanshi. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at Orchids Breast Health. It was a big shock for me to accept this. Me and my family went through a lot of mental and physical pain. I was scared to even undergo any treatment. My decision changed only after I talked to Dr. Koppiker and realised how important it is to undergo the necessary treatment. I would like to thank Dr. Koppiker for his precious time in spite of his busy schedule. I would also like to thank Laleh Ma’am who helped me get free medication. It was a relief as the costs of the treatment are very high.

Dr. Pranjali Sheth

Firstly when we came to know about my mom's condition (she is a case of right breast carcinoma) she was totally lost. Body and mind both were out of control. But we came to know about Orchid Breast Health. There were many 'Dilemas' related to disease. After meeting respected Dr. Koppiker sir and all staff here all our doubts and queries were cleared. The way sir all and staff here responded to our queries gave us all family members a feeling of relaxation. Treatment, care for patients, proper techniques of handling patient with their condition, counselling patients and their relatives, receiving patients call and making adjustments accordingly all go here very smoothly. Utmost attention is paid to each and every patient. The Day care, the place where chemotherapy is being done, all is systematically kept and taken care of. Thanks to Orchid Breast Health for all such facilities and care.

My name is Priyanka Vitkar. PCCM had organised health camp in which they conducted breast examination at our place. They checked every woman and called few women in their clinic who had some problems. They have done sonomammography without charging anything. Thanks to their initiative that we now realise the importance of these tests and self-breast examination. It has helped us understand the importance and seriousness of a lump in our body which we earlier assumed to be normal. As much as they educated us, they also provided free testing for these women.

My name is Archana Gade. I am working as traffic Police. PCCM had organised a health camp at Yerwada. In that camp one lump was found in my breast when they checked me. They called me at their clinic and they did my sonography free of cost. The staff is very cooperative and understands the issues that women like us face. They are running very good project and I am requesting women to get themselves checked.

I am Lata Babar. I am working at ASHA. At Bavdhan PHC Prashanti Cancer Care Mission conducted a Breast Cancer Screening Camp. The information given by the team of Prashanti was very useful. They told us the symptoms of the breast cancer. Also, we got the information about the treatment and the diagnosis of breast cancer. They also trained us for self-breast examination. From the session we got the knowledge of the precaution to keep the cancer away and also the care after the cancer. All the ASHA members and workers present for the camp got the information and they were tested by the Prashanti team and all of us liked this camp very much.

Sunita Kadam

I am Sunita Kadam, from Bavdhan PHC, Satara. Prashanti organised a camp for our workers to educate us about breast cancer and self-breast examination techniques. The members attending this camp were tested by the Prashanti volunteers and individuals with abnormalities were called to the Orchids Breast Health Clinic for further screening. During this testing, I was found to have a watery discharge from my nipple which had to be further investigated. I underwent sonomammography at the centre free of cost. I was also counselled for my reports which helped me.

160 ASHA got the benefit of the Breast Cancer Screening Camp conducted by Prashanti Cancer Care Mission. The team of Prashanti did the breast examination for all ASHA members and also educated them to do it by themselves at equal intervals. Five women had some abnormal symptoms and Prashanti screened them by further tests free of cost. The team of Prashanti had a very interactive session with our workers and delivered the information in very simple language. They are working towards creating awareness in women which can help women identify abnormalities. These women can then approach Orchids Breast Health Centre for further tests.

Since, then I have been closely associated with the clinic and its team. Dr. Koppiker, I believe is a great personality. Dr. Deshmukh, who designed my chemotherapy treatment has also been a great doctor to me. George brother who is in charge of the day care at PCCM has been an excellent support with a lot of help, assistance from the other staff members. The team is very friendly and co-operative with everyone and they have helped me deal with this journey better than I thought I could.

My name is Aliya Inamdar. I am diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a big shock for me and my family.

I personally want to thank Laleh Ma’am and Dr. Koppiker for being such a great support and an advisor and counsellor during the course of my disease.

I would like to share my personal experience at Orchids Breast Health Clinic after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The clinic is very clean and hygienic which is extremely important especially during the pandemic. The staff is extremely polite and helpful. Special thanks to George brother who takes care of the Day care chemotherapy unit. He is friendly, patient and very efficient at his work. During my treatment here, my suggestions were very well taken and were implemented at the earliest. I have had a pleasant experience and would highly encourage patients with breast cancer to approach the experts like Dr. Koppiker.

I was anxious but Ms. Rashmi, working at Orchids Breast Health Clinic was very helpful and made me very comfortable. I was further advised biopsy to remove the lump.
