The Dr provided an excellent explanation of my daughters condition and talked us through the explanation by using a diagram which he drew as we went along. The only pity was that having asked for the sheet of paper I couldn’t read it when I got home!
I felt in very safe knowledgeable hands, he explained everything in laments terms and made sure I understood the diagnosis. He covered all aspects and invited any questions I may have. He was very thorough and I left with a full understanding of my condition
Having recently gone through a very traumatic experience with my husband being hospitalised with acute angioedema and put into a induced coma , we both found it very reassuring speaking with Dr Sargur. His in depth explanation and his advice with regard to medication that would best be avoided in the future was very helpful . It was good to speak with someone that fully explained things to us .
During the appointment Dr Sargur listened with understanding and was very calm. I received a detailed treatment plan promptly after my appointment. I wish there were more consultants as good as Dr Sargur. If I need to see an allergy consultant again privately he will be my first choice.
