“I have found Dr Arghya Sarkhel, Consultant Psychiatrist, to be extremely professional, knowledgable and well informed; conscientious, approachable and patient with a genuinely caring manner. He listens and always knows what we have discussed previously. He reviews my care plan on a regular basis. He is accessible and I have found it clear that my well-being as a patient is important to him. There is much more I could say - since I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Sarkhel, whom in my experience has provided excellent quality of care.“

    Explanation (5/5)
    I started seeing Dr Sarkhel when I experienced severe depression during my recovery from a heart attack. My life changed beyond all recognition, I experienced levels of panic and stress I could not have imagined possible, and was incapable of performing the most basic of tasks, and interacting with friends and even close family induced chronic anxiety. For a considerable period, I really didn’t see a way out of this predicament, life became purely about surviving the day, and there seemed no relief or escape from the bleakest and darkest of thoughts. From the first session, Dr Sarkhel demonstrated real empathy, made me feel I wasn’t alone in this struggle. He very quickly identified a combination of antidepressants which had a really rapid, positive effect on my psychological state, and whilst he has always reinforced the incremental nature of recovery from such a chronic depressive disorder, it has been so encouraging to start to ‘get my life back,’ step by step. Dr Sarkhel’s manner is comforting, his explanations are lucid, and he is an overall calming and enormously positive presence in the midst of a trial that I often believed I wouldn’t emerge from, at least in any fit state to function anywhere close to normally. I would recommend his services without reservation.

    I’ve started getting psychiatric help from Dr Sarkhel about a year ago and I can’t be more grateful for the hard work he put in to find the right treatment that would specifically suit me. My mental health has improved significantly and I’m finally living a full life after years of being committed to mental wards and being debilitatingly depressed. Dr Sarkhel was always flexible with his time, ready to issue a new prescription or answer any questions that I have throughout our sessions. I highly recommend Dr Sarkhels services!

    Patient seen for:
    I can not thank Dr Sarkhel enough for his help and support over the past few months. From my first contact with him, I finally realised that there was a way out of how I was feeling, and that I would get better. My life has improved dramatically (almost back to before I became unwell) and I will always be forever grateful for the support and help that he provided. I really don’t think that I would be where I am, without him. He is easy to talk to, whilst remaining professional. Sharing his knowledge in a way that is relatable and easy to understand. I only wish that everyone experiencing difficulties, has the opportunity to meet with a Doctor like him.

    Patient seen for:
    I received excellent care from Dr Sarkhel. He is a true professional who cares about his patients. He is available and approachable. Dr. Sarkhel structured an integrated approach to my case involving both therapy and medication, carefully explaining all options and suggestions. The approach was highly effective and pulled me out of an extremely tricky place. I still cannot believe how rapidly Dr Sarkhel stabilized me from a full-on 'tailspin', in which I was when I first came to see him, and how much better I feel and function now. I am immensely thankful to him.

    Amazing! feel a lot better after receiving his care. Unlike other doctors I have seen, he clearly cares a lot about each of his patients and always puts in lots of effort; even remembers little details about me. He is one of the reasons I aspire to be a doctor myself one day. I feel more motivated to do so each time I speak to him as he is a clear example of the difference a good doctor can make in someone's life.

    "Dr Sarkhel is an excellent clinician with great interpersonal skills, highly knowledgable and is a leading Psychiatrist in London. He is dual-qualified, practising both in the field of General Adult Psychiatry and Old Age Psychiatry. Dr Sarkhel is one of the few Psychiatrists in the UK, who offer the novel TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) treatment, with very good results. I'm happy to recommend Dr Sarkhel to anyone who is looking for an empathic and highly skilled Consultant Psychiatrist."
