Dr. James Rakshi has been a Consultant Neurologist for nearly 20 years and has considerable experience in diagnosing and managing a wide range of neurological disorders and problems, both acute and chronic. He graduated in 1988 from Aberdeen Universtiy, Scotland, where he first developed an interest in Neurology and Brain imaging working in the Neurology and Neurosurgical unit. The very first clinical MRI Brain scanner was built at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Dr Rakshi trained in general medicine covering many different specialities for more than four years before specialising in neurology, which has helped him develop a more holistic and pro-active approach to Neurology. He undertook neurology training at a number of major neuroscience centres in London, including The Hammersmith, St George’s, St Mary's and Charing Cross Hospitals as well as the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery where he subsequently became an Honorary Consultant. He has also worked at many of the District General Hospitals in and around London. Dr. Rakshi has run an advanced multiple sclerosis centre and has trained in a number of neuro-rehabilitation centres. 

Dr Rakshi believes the key to reaching the correct diagnosis is taking the time to listen to the patient and family and always keeping an open mind whilst considering the more serious and urgent diagnoses. Sometimes it is an incidental or random comment from the patient or relative that alerts one to the diagnosis. He has a reputation for giving a clear explanation of the patient's neurological problem and how best to investigate and manage it. He is often asked to provide a second opinion. He prides himself on quickly organising investigations and providing detailed letters and reports in clear understandable language. Neurology often crosses over into other medical and surgical specialities and so he has developed over the years strong links with other top consultants to provide a true expert multidisciplinary appraoch when required. He also has an an outstanding team of therapists who he works closely with. His ethos is very simple, treat each patient the way you would want to be treated yourself. Every patient is unique and in the way their symptoms present. Therefore Dr Rakshi has developed multiple approaches to best assess and manage his patients. Dr Rakshi encourages patients to provide a summary of their medical and neurological symptoms.

Headache, dizziness and sensory disturbance are all common
neurological conditions that are disturbing and can be disabling. Dr Ben Turner
is a Consultant Neurologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer with a wealth of
experience in the full range of neurological conditions with a particular
interest in headache, dizziness and multiple sclerosis.

‘nail’ the diagnosis and then identify treatable causes. Common symptoms such
as ‘headache’ and ‘vertigo’ are often incorrectly diagnosed and the wrong
treatments recommended. Dr Ben Turner can provide prompt assessment,
investigation and interventions where required.

Dr Ben Turner’s NHS post is as Senior Consultant Neurologist
at Barts Health NHS Trust and as Honorary Senior Lecturer continues to be
actively involved in research for MS and headache. In addition, as Training
Programme Director for Neurology he manages the training of future Consultant
Neurologists. At HCA Shard and London Brdige he is Senior Neurology Consultant and Network lead for Neurology. 

In addition to his work in the UK, Dr Turner has also worked as a visiting doctor in Kuwait, UAE and Jordan. He has also given lectures on Multiple Sclerosis in various cities, including Tehran and Beirut, where the disease is prevalent.

What is a Neurologist?

Diseases and disorders of the central nervous system can range from the relatively mild, such as recurrent headaches or speech and language disorders, up to the deadly serious, including spinal cord damage, seizure disorders, and stroke. If you or a loved one have a problem with the brain, spinal cord, and/or nerves of the body, you need the services of one of the top neurologists in London. Many of the best neurologists in London are listed with Doctify. It is important to note that finding a neurologist in London is not the only doctor you might possibly need.

Neurologists don’t generally perform surgical procedures – Instead, their speciality is in the diagnoses and management of central nervous system (CNS) disorders and diseases. If a patient requires surgery, usually most top neurologists in London can provide referrals to trusted neurosurgeons to provide the surgery. In many cases, there may be neurosurgeons associated with the same practice as the neurologist. Additionally, patients can always find a neurosurgeon in London through Doctify.

When to see a Neurologist?

Many CNS problems do not require surgery, however, and a neurologist in London will be able to provide a range of treatment options. Many seizure disorders, speech disorders, nerve disorders, and degenerative problems (such as MS, Alzheimer’s Parkinson’s, etc.) are best addressed with a combination of medication and therapy. On the other end of the spectrum, some spinal cord injuries may require surgery, or be inoperable altogether. Neurology is a complex and varied field of expertise, but for any CNS problems, you may experience, visiting one of the top neurologists in London can help simplify and clarify your individual situation, and get the best treatment options available.
