Dr Sargur explained the results of the blood test to me and once again explained the two different forms of desensitisation so I could make a choice on which one would suit me best. I was happy with the consultation I received.
I saw Dr Sargur at Claremont Hospital last year in August privately as I could no get a referral from my GP since they thought I could treat my condition with taking higher dosages of antihistamines. I was very happy that Dr Sargur listened to me and asked my GP to perform a blood test and to refer me to the Allergy Clinic in the Northern General Hospital. He explained the treatment very well.
I found Dr Sargur really helpful, he listened to my problem, suggested options and explained all stages for each option clearly. He explained what the possible issues were and I came away feeling reassured and like there is a plan for treatment.
