Dr Sargur was very pleasant and he was understanding to me being late to my appointment due to a Police incident near the hospital. He asked lots of questions and gave good, clear information and advice on dealing with my allergies.
I felt very comfortable throughout the consultation and felt the step by step questions on my symptoms and the following explanations helped with my understanding of the issues and also gave me confidence in the diagnosis. I felt that Dr Sargur listened to all the issues and explained the points that were relevant to my illness in an easy way to help me find the best way to improve my health. Leaving the consultation, I felt confident that I was on the right track after many years of suffering.
Dr Sargur was very knowledgeable, friendly and caring. He listened to everything I said and went through it all in detail in a way I understood and not all in complicated medical terminology. I would definitely recommend him.
Listened to me and performed a skin prick test at the time I was there for the consultation, which was very useful. Gave me options for next steps and explained his thoughts about my condition clearly. It was a very worthwhile appointment.
