You messed with my father who most CERTAINLY has Parkinson’s. You and your team nearly killed him by removing his meds and putting him on Nuplazid. He is a hero and a beloved father and gentleman and you treated him like garbage. He’s in good hands now with an Amazing Doctor and he is strong enough to tell you just how much he appreciated you and your cohorts. I hope he gets the chance. I also learned you condescended my mother. Big mistake. Women and patients beware.

Dr.Neekhra was called to evaluate my condition in the ER just as he was leaving for home. He called my home that evening with a script that I believe saved my eyesight. He also followed up quickly after a biopsy to see that I got proper care with a Rheumatologist. So grateful to him. I wear hearing aids which is not like normal hearing and find it somewhat difficult to understand his accent. I will be seeing my regular ophthalmologist for eye care since he is primarily a neurologist.

WORST DR I HAVE EVER SEEN!!! He walked in, sat down without saying anything. Then said "put your arm up here" and began the EMG test. Every time I tried to ask him a question, he ignored me. When I tried to explain other symptoms I had, he ignored me. In the end he said "I don't know what would cause your problem. Maybe something from a hockey injury 3 years ago". Then he proceeded to say "come back in 6 months and we will do the test again". He prescribed meds, without even telling me he was..

Oversaw my now deceased father's disability claim. Did not listen, was unable to communicate clearly, and wrote nothing of any validity in his report. My father was denied disability because of this man, and suffered until death. My father left the appointment that day completely defeated, knowing he had not listened. He did such a poor job, upon appeal the overseeing judge did not hold any weight to his report and clearly defined his failure. Shame on you. Do NOT recommend.

I am very fortunate to have found Dr. Neekhra who was finally able to make a diagnosis when others rejected it as a pseudo condition. With his treatment I am experiencing a huge change in my daily living.

Linda in Peoria, IL – Oct 11, 2016
Frustrating experience with Dr. Neekhra and his office. He was very dismissive and did not explain my diagnosis. He also recommended a treatment plan that his office currently does not offer but refused to write a referral to a location that does have it. Currently getting a referral to different neurologist who will take my headache serious and provide options for relief.

Lawsuit waiting to happen. Patient had to go to the ER 4 times because of Dr Neekhra's negligence. I would suggest going to the ER if you need neurological testing. They do a better job then Dr. Neekhra.
