See What Our Patients Have To Say



"Dr Sakhuja has had a profound impact on our family life. After several appointments with various practitioners over many years, no one was able to diagnose ADHD in our son, who was clearly  showing many of the symptoms of the condition and was struggling with very poor concentration. Dr Sakhuja’s expert knowledge and experience in this field, aided with brand new up to date computer technology, allowed him to make an accurate diagnosis during his first consultation with our son. He was able to get the medication he needed immediately and is now able to concentrate and study like he never has before and enjoying a much-improved quality of life" 


"Up until 2 years ago my life had just gone around in circles, I was always labelled a problem person who dealt with my issues by medicating myself through various drug and alcohol binges. When I walked through the drs door we started to piece together some things about my life and it was quite quickly apparent to Dr Sakhuja that I was suffering from ADHD. To say the last 2 years has been easy would be a lie but with the medication, help and support from a Dr who could see past the alcohol and self medication, my life has changed around completely. I’m still prone to my defects but when I apply what had been given to me, me and my whole family are so much mentally fitter. There is no one else that I would prefer to see than Dr Sakhuja. Still a long way to go but so much more acceptance and hope for my future. Thank you"

Jonathan James

I approached Dr Sakhuja after being suspected of having ADHD as a child.  Whilst the symptoms I had diminished over time I still had various issues and at the age of 42 decided to definitively get to the bottom of it.  Dr Sakhuja was fantastic, looking into my childhood history, speaking with my mother regarding her experiences with me and taking me through numerous thorough tests which not only aided my diagnoses but also looked at other potential conditions which I was not expecting.  By the time I left I knew exactly where I stood with my mental health and I'm really looking forward to my second meet up with him in June to work out how I move forward in my life.  I'm extremely grateful to him and his staff for the efforts they've made and even recommended him to family members within days of having my diagnosis.
