I met Dr. Rahul after a severe cough my GP recommended an x-ray test and the x-ray results came out as abnormal. Dr. Rahul is an expert in his field, and at every step of my diagnosis, he was very clear in his explanations, reassuring and thorough in his investigations and next-step suggestions. I would highly recommend Dr. Rahul for a chest, respiratory or lung-related issue, he will make sure the patient is at ease and provide appropriate care and diagnosis. Aside from being great at what he does, Dr. Rahul is also a good human being who genuinely cares for his patient's wellbeing.
I was referred to Dr Mogal by my oncologist when I had breathing problems during my treatment for lung cancer. Dr Mogal has been painstaking in his investigation into the cause and continues to monitor my condition. He has always been willing to listen, to answer all my questions and his ‘no stone left unturned’ approach has inspired my complete confidence in him.
Dr Mogal took time to listen properly as well as asking his own questions. An effective communicator who instills confidence and makes the consultation a stress-free two way process. There are more tests to be done and I'm glad to be under his care going forward.
I was referred to Dr Mogal by my private healthcare provider, following concerns regarding an allergic reaction to nuts, combined with a family history of severe allergies. Dr Mogal was incredibly thorough in his investigation and ensured that all avenues were explored. I found him caring, diligent and keen to get to the root cause. In a worrying scenario, especially with the press around anaphylaxis, it was brilliant to have such peace of mind and I felt that he truly listened. I had complete confidence in Dr Mogal and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.
