Many of us will have had the experience of a close friend or family member been diagnosed with cancer. Such a diagnosis usually brings anxiety and concern for the future. My name is Dr Maher Hadaki and I have become an oncologist because I have a deep desire to change the course of this disease. My passion is to cure where possible and when a cure is not possible to extend and improve my patients’ lives.
I completed my oncology training at Cambridge University Hospital and University College London Hospital. I have been working as an oncology consultant treating Breast and Lung cancer patients using Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy, Hormones and Immunotherapy since 2012. I have an established NHS practice at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust (Kent Oncology Centre) and non-NHS (private) practice at GenesisCare in West Malling, Maidstone. I also have practising privileges at Leaders in Oncology Care at Harley Street where I treat patients who prefer to go to central London for their treatment. I hold the membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) and I am a fellow member at the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR).
I am part of the Breast and Lung multidisciplinary teams. Each team consists of speciality nurses, radiologists, histopathologists, surgeons and other clinicians. We all work together in harmony to provide patients with the most effective management plan. All treatments I recommend are in line with the most up to date national and international cancer guidelines.
I am married and have three young angels. Best time of the week is when we go out for a meal or sit together at home and watch a movie.
