Dr Sargur spent a lot of time explaining the problems with my chest and various allergies.He showed me how to get the best results from my inhaler.I found his advice invaluable.
Dr Sargur took time to explain his approach and drew a diagram to help me to understand better. He managed my expectations that no cause might be found, but explained what I could do in this case. Haven't had any results or treatment yet so I can only comment on my initial consultation.
The doctor was thorough and clear in his explanations. He followed up the consultation with a letter and a phone call in which he explained everything so that we could understand it
Dr Ravishankar Sargur was fantastic. He was the consummate professional - he was patient, a great listener, supportive, highly knowledgeable and highly skilled. He is someone who is not just very good at their job, he totally excels at it!
