I found Dr Sargur easy to converse with giving me time to explain my symptoms. He was most helpful in setting up a plan to help me with my problems. I would most definitely recommend this doctor for his help and understanding.
Dr Sargur saw me at very short notice regarding a long term concern about a possible allergic reaction to a vaccine. He gave me ample time without any pressure to discuss my problem with him. He listened carefully to all I had to say and we had a very fruitful discussion about possible solutions. He then arranged for the further steps necessary for me resolve my problem to be taken within the very limited time I had available. After many years of uncertainty, I was extremely grateful to have a sympathetic listener and one who dealt with my concerns in such a positive way. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Sargur to others.
Listened to me and carefully explained all the options. He was extremely knowledgeable and happy to talk about any concerns I had. He answered all of my questions thoroughly.

Very reassuring to see a doctor who takes the time to talk through and explain in detail the next stages
