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
