Dr Sargur explained my condition simply and wrote down the important points for me to take away which was really helpful. He listened and made notes of my experiences which helped to try and workout how to manage my allergies going forward. He took time to find background reading for me. In general it was a good experience.
I was very happy with the service provided by Dr Sargur and would be happy to see him again if I had any immunology issues and I would also recommend him to friends and family.
Pleasant and approachable. He listened and then gave a detailed explanation as to what the diagnosis may be. Obviously with allergies there may be different approaches to try. So far the nasal sprays are working and keeping a food diary is helping. Thank you for ending 7 years of misery where my nose was concerned.
The Dr provided an excellent explanation of my daughters condition and talked us through the explanation by using a diagram which he drew as we went along. The only pity was that having asked for the sheet of paper I couldn’t read it when I got home!
I felt in very safe knowledgeable hands, he explained everything in laments terms and made sure I understood the diagnosis. He covered all aspects and invited any questions I may have. He was very thorough and I left with a full understanding of my condition
