As a doctor who suffers from severe headaches, it was refreshing seeing Dr Matharu. After an arduous journey trying to find a good neurologist I finally came to see Dr Matharu. He is absolutely wonderful. I know he looks after several doctors so that is telling as these doctors rate him as one of the best for headaches. Great bedside manner. Very caring about patients. Discusses lots of option. Fantastic letters

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

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.
