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.

Every patient is unique in the way their symptoms present. Therefore Dr Rakshi has learnt over the years multiple approaches to best assess and manage his patients. Dr Rakshi encourages patients to provide a summary of their medical and neurological symptoms and history.

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. (sounds obvious but in his own personal experience rarely done) 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. His general approach is very simple, treat each patient the way you would want to be treated yourself.
