About me

Dr Rakshi has been a consultant Neurologist for nearly 20 years and has considerable experience in diagnosing and managing a very wide range of neurological disorders and problems. He graduated in 1988 at Aberdeen University where he first developed an interest in neurology and neuro-imaging working in the neurosurgical and neurology unit. The first Brain MRI scanner in the world was built at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Dr Rakshi believes the key to reaching the correct diagnosis is taking the time to listen to the patient and family. He therefore ensures there is plenty of time for taking a detailed history. He always keeps an open mind whilst considering the more serious and urgent diagnoses. He has a reputation for giving a clear explanation of the patient's neurological problem and how best to investigate and or manage it. He is frequently asked to provide a second opinion. Consequently many of Dr Rakshi's patients have seen several other consultants from a variety of specialities with their problems and symptoms before coming to see him. He prides himself on quickly organising investigations and providing detailed letters and reports in clear understandable language. His clinical approach is very simple, treat each patient the way you would want to be treated yourself. Therefore, he always tries to do the best for the individual patient and help in whatever way he can. You can review patient feedback at: Take care
