Dr Matharu has changed my life! I struggled with SUNCT for several years until I met Dr Matharu. He started me on medications that have helped tremendously. I was told by an eminent professor in neurology not to have an operation. Dr Matharu arranged a micro vascular decompression for me which has rendered me pain free for the first time in decades. I can’t thank Dr Matharu enough.

Very thorough consultation. First time anyone has taken the time to carefully think about my various medical problems and come up with a diagnosis that explains everything. My experience with other neurologists has been that they only focus on the neurological aspect without taking a wholistic approach. Would highly recommend Dr Matharu for people with headache problems
