Dr Sargur was very knowledgeable, friendly and caring. He listened to everything I said and went through it all in detail in a way I understood and not all in complicated medical terminology. I would definitely recommend him.
Listened to me and performed a skin prick test at the time I was there for the consultation, which was very useful. Gave me options for next steps and explained his thoughts about my condition clearly. It was a very worthwhile appointment.
This was one of the best consultation I ever had with any doctor ever. Because the level of care was so good compared to what I have received from my GPs or other experiences I don't have much to suggest.
Very informative the Doctor seems to have a very indepth insight into what the possible problem could be and step by step plans of ways to treat it. Very professional, understanding and listened. Explained differential diagnosis very clearly.
Very attentive and thoughtful, although he was not able to give me any specific solutions, he made some helpful recommendations and did follow up with me by post after the consultation sending through information that was not available during the consultation. He seemed to have a lot of time with me, which I appreciated, as my problems are not well recognised and some doctors have been dismissive in the past. A few suggestions: If the appointments could include a follow up phone call/Email exchange it might be really helpful as there are often questions that come to mind when patients have digested all the information. The Doc had limited availability at the hospital nearest to me, so more immunologists would be a positive step forward!
