I was quite nervous before my treatment but Dr Arghya Sarkhel immediately put me at ease. An extremely knowledgable and most importantly, enthusiastic towards TMS which is a fairly new treatment. Not only does the doctor explain everything clearly at the time he also does follow ups to check everything is going in the right direction. I have always struggled to find the correct and understanding person but I think I have now found someone I can easily communicate with and rely on. Thank you

It’s been great seeing him since the last four months. He is very patient and understanding. He tries reaching to the core of every problem and comes up with ideal solutions. The counselling sessions, coupled with the medication and rTMS therapy greatly benefited me in my journey of fighting depression. I am currently writing about my experience sitting on the rTMS chair. It’s an absolute painless and non-invasive technique and you can relax, listen to music or even use your phone during the treatment. The results are visible in a couple of weeks. Overall, I had a great experience at living mind.

I saw Dr Sarkhel for depression and a psychotic episode and was treated with RTMS and medication. He was very knowledgeable as well as kind and explained everything to me really well. He was there for me at a point of crisis as well persistent depression. I have now been stable and happy for almost six months after feeling like I would probably be depressed for the rest of my life. He went out of his way to help me in a time of need and was very calming and reassuring. I can't recommend him enough!

Dr Sarkhel is a thorough and compassionate medical practitioner. When it comes to rTMS treatments his method of consolidating a full weeks course of treatments of the weekend is extremely convenient. I’ve had rTMS treatments elsewhere when I’ve needed to go to the each day of the week for 1 hour a day, Dr Sarkhel’s treatment regime is as effective, if not more-so, than in the past ... but the connivence factor is much more suitable to my lifestyle with his style & approach

Dr Arghya Sarkhel

Thank you for your valuable feedback! I am glad you found our integrated rTMS not only clinically effective but also the schedule was convenient and least disruptive in your work and other social commitments.

Superb experience from start to finish. I was impressed with Dr Sarkhel’s initial responsiveness to my query and informative approach in regard to the questions I had. He clearly knows his stuff but adds a very human touch by taking time to explain things and I was also impressed by how accommodating his practice was in scheduling my treatments. You feel taken care of.
