I found Dr. Sargur to be extremely courteous and polite. His thorough questioning of my previous medical history, as well as the reason for my being referred to him, left me in no doubt that I was receiving the best possible care, and I could be confident in any conclusions that were reached. At the end of the consultation both my husband and I felt Dr. Sargur had explained everything in a detailed manner, and although he gave me the opportunity to ask further questions there was nothing further I could have queried.
This as an incredibly useful session . Careful information gathering with some sensitive and thoughtful questions and an appropriate explanation at the right level ! Spot on - thanks very much indeed !
This doctor has been amazing, he listened well and gave advice, he knew so much and shared the science behind it with me so I understood what he was advising and why it was happening to my body, after seeing a range of doctors he was worth going private for, the medication he recommended has helped me tenfold and he has even been on the end of an e mail when I have wanted further help and advice, I can't thank you enough for what you have done
Dr. Sargur spent a great deal of time gathering the necessary history before explaining the relevant information in easy-to-understand terms. This was backed-up by a full written summary, that was sent to both my GP and myself, along with results and recommendations for the future. I had a professional, friendly consultation and would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Sargur.
