Dr Matharu has been looking after my complex headache disorder for several years. I wasn’t properly diagnosed until I saw Dr Matharu despite seeing many eminent headache specialists in London. My headaches are now well managed for the first time in almost 2 decades. Besides his clinical acumen, he is a wonderful person with an excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Matharu is simply amazing! After nearly a year of being mis-diagnosed and made to feel my pain was not real, he not only made me feel at ease on my first consultation, but he also gave me the opportunity to be myself again, and led me through what had been a very long and dark tunnel toward the light. Words really cannot describe how much he has changed my life.

Dr Matharu is warm, caring and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of headaches. I had seen several neurologist, including headache specialists, before seeing Dr Matharu for my highly disabling cluster headaches. Dr Matharu was able to sort out my headaches though other eminent neurologists had given up one.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

21-04-2018
Truly one of the most wonderful neurologists I have ever seen. Coming from New York where I knew how to navigate the healthcare system and knew the best doctors it was a bit scary moving to London. I’m thankful one of my best friends recommended Dr.Matharu. I came to him after having suffered from a very scary hemispheric migraine attack and he outlined a plan of action to combat these debilitating attacks. He is not only an incredibly knowledgable doctor but he is also caring, takes time to explain things, and is reassuring.
