Felt at ease as soon as meeting Dr Sargur. He listened to everything I had to say. He also explained things thoroughly, without being too clinical. I found him very professional, friendly and approachable.
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.
