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!
Dr Sargur took time to listen to my personal story of symptoms and asked further questions. Dr Sargur then took time to discuss my diagnosis in detail and in a way that I could understand as a non medical person. He also gave me written information which I found useful to read and helped me reflect back on the consultation. I didn't feel rushed and came from the consultation with a plan and the confidence to manage my condition in the future. Altogether I had a very positive experience and rate Dr Sargur 10 out of 10 for his manner professionalism and expertise. Thank you
I found Dr. Sargur very sympathetic in explaining my symptoms. He was patient and carefully described what the causes might be. His manner was polite, attentive and my husband and I found him easy to understand and very approachable. He was most considerate concerning my inability to hear well.
