Dr Sagur was welcoming and quickly got up to speed with my condition. On asking some questions and a brief examination he quickly came up with a diagnosis. He drew a picture to explain what was happening and how treatment would proceed. I was also shown a website with useful information and pictures. I would recommend Dr Sagur as he explains everything very clearly, I did not feel rushed in the appointment and was happy with the cost.
I sought a consultation by Dr Sargur on the 13th May 2017 to deal with some unusual symptoms encompassing severe dizziness and flashing immediately after meals, combined with a tight chest, sinus congestion and/or trembling on occasion. These have led to the restriction of my diet to a bare and nutritionally inadequate minimum of boiled potatoes, rice, eggs, fresh and fetta cheese, cucumbers, red peppers and a few green vegetables. He considered any existing conditions, discussed the symptoms and possible causes with me to then propose a number of tests in clarification as well as a plan forward to address my long term nutritional needs. I felt taken seriously, treated with genuine concern and patience. Dr Sargur is clearly very knowlegdeable in the complex field of allergies and immunology. I now look forward to the results of my tests and his letter, the way forward in dealing with my condition. Thank you Dr Sargur.

Dr Sargur took the time to listen carefully to me and also gave a very thorough explanation of the reasons for my symptoms. We travelled 2.5 hours to see this doctor and felt that our time had not been wasted.
