Thank you very much to Dr Sargur for his care and thorough approach. His extreme intelligence, extensive knowledge and natural pedagogic skills are qualities which made meeting this gentleman a pleasure as well as an enriching experience.
Doctor Sagur listened in great detail to my case and this is demonstrated very clearly in his follow up notes that he sent to myself with my invoice and to my doctor. He was also very helpful in explaining scientific information in a very simple and clear way for me to understand my consultation in the detail I wanted. Overall was very happy with my consultation
I was referred to Dr Sargur in May at Claremont via BUPA following an extreme allergic reaction. I received 2 consultations and several tests in order to try and ascertain the cause of the allergy. Dr Sargur has a wonderful and genuine way with people and shows tremendous natural care and understanding. His extensive knowledge, expertise and ability to translate complex medical scenarios into easy to understand language is exceptional. He made time to answer my many questions which I very much appreciated at what was a very frightening period for me. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dr Sargur at all - a pleasure to meet him. With my sincere thanks Lisa Butterfield
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.
