Dr Bhattacharjee was extremely thorough, in both his questions and in the scans/tests he wanted me to have. His explanations put me at ease and were simplified so I could get a good understanding of my health. It was a pleasure to be under the care of such a lovely doctor.

I saw Dr Bhatactharjee in his Barnet Clinic and was able to get an appointment within a few days (during a pandemic). He is great at explaining what’s going on and provides appropriate solutions and follow up steps. Nobody wishes to see a doctor but I would recommend him for Neurological problems.

I found Dr Bhattacharjee to be both very thorough within the consultation and also very personable, taking the time to explain why he was asking certain questions and what conclusions he came to based upon the responses. When it came to the medication he again took the time to explain the options and agree what was best in regards to my particular situation

Dr Bhattacharjee listened to my concerns carefully and immediately identified my diagnosis. He was very tentative, polite, and took the time to explain what and why was happening with my condition and all possible medications I could take to treat it. I was really impressed with how he approached my concerns, with attention to detail and positivism, not underestimating the need for me as a patient to have a full understanding of a) why I was getting these symptoms b) the possible side effects of the medications. I left the cabinet with full confidence that I should follow his advice, which was a relief on its own, after being in a bit of limbo for a few months. I'll surely be back if I ever need a specialist in his area of expertise.

He was engaging and thorough and listened to everything I had to say. He was clear about next steps and explained his diagnosis using examples and based on his in-depth experience. A friendly and exceptional consultant whom I would strongly recommend.

I could not speak highly enough of Dr Bhattacharjee. He is clearly knowledgeable, experienced and an expert in his field. His manner was professional and also compassionate - very understanding and reassuring. In addition, Jane made the whole booking process very fast and efficient. We had a challenging situation to handle and Dr Bhattacharjee made things easy, understandable and left me with absolute confidence in his opinion. No doubt in this recommendation at all - excellent. Thank you to Jane and Dr Bhattacharjee.

Dural Venous Fistula
When I first met Dr Bhattaharjee after having discussed my symtoms with various consultants, who could offer me no diagnosis, I was having alarming symptoms which appeared to be deteriorating rapidly. Though rare, Dr Bhatachargee suspected that I was suffering from a dural venous fistula which was starting to affect my ability to walk and creating other peripheral issues . This diagnosis was confirmed after several MRI's and by associated tests. Miss Mary Murphy performed surgery which immediately relieved the symptoms. Dr Bhattachargee and Miss Murphy were seamless in their communication, advice and support. Their respective PA's were highly efficient , understanding and comforting in their management of appointments and support through the whole process. I can honestly say that Dr Bhattacharjee's diagnosis and referral to surgery has helped me walk again. I cannot thank him and the team he brought around him enough. Thank you

Dr Bhattacharjee was very clear and articulate in explaining Ollie's (my son's) situation and possible next steps for his recovery. He was immediately understanding of Ollie's condition, and Ollie and I took comfort in knowing that he was receiving valuable advice on his recovery. I look forward to the next steps that Dr Bhattacharjee has set out and our subsequent follow up in due course.
