Gave confidence that was very knowledgeable in his field, explained things simply and clearly without talking down to someone who's not of a medical background, didn't rush or watch the clock spending adequate time to listen and answer any questions.
The appointment was very useful and answered all the questions that were long-standing in my mind. Dr Sargur listened patiently and responded in detail and great care. Doctors like him put the belief back in health professionals. Can not thank enough.
Dr Sargur was extremely impressive during my consultation with him. He quickly understood my issues and his explanation of the process and procedures was easy to understand. He subsequently did what he said he would do in the timescales he promised.
Dr Sargur spent a lot of time fully understanding my symptoms and complaints. He explained the possibilities and options in a very clear way using a flow-chart type diagram systematically which I found really made me feel like every possibility was considered and was easy to understand. The report I received from my tests was informative and he followed up all of my questions. Was definitely the best patient experience I’ve had.
