My favorite doctor. Amazing with Ms .he goes out of his way to help...
in Peoria, IL |
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.

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.
