Dr Sargur is an attentive and caring person. He makes you feel relaxed in his company listening to you with interest and does not dismiss anything you have to say. He explained things regarding my reactions to my symptoms easily, so that I could undestand what had happened to me. I felt reassured and confident in his diagnosis and prognosis for the future. I would definiately recommend anyone to see Dr Sargur, as I have seen other allergy/immunology specialists and not gained the understanding or acknowledgement for my symptons that I received from Dr Sargur.
Dr Sargur listened very carefully to all I said. Asked relevant questions. He made sure I understood everything he said and detailed a plan to investigate my problem An excellent and caring doctor
