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.
I had a really positive consultation with Dr Sargur on Saturday 1st July. He listened carefully to all my concerns and took time to fully address everything I asked him about, explaining in detail the process of investigations that needed to be done. I came away feeling very reassured and positive that things were moving forward.
