Kind and warm
Dr Sood was extremely careful with my anxious teenager. He was kind, calm and reassuring. He took time to explain what he was going to do and ensured that my child was comfortable with the pin prick tests. He provided explanations of allergies at the level that we could understand. I could not rate him higher. So refreshing to come across a professional who listens to their patients issues and acts accordingly. Thank you
Our appointment with Dr Sood struck a greta balance between being very friendly but also incredibly professional. He explained everything well ensuring we understood his thinking, the recommended course of action and the rationale for it. He was also very reassuring and we didn't feel like we were being talked down at - which can sometimes be the case with healthcare professionals. Highly recommended!
Very understanding of my child’s need and very thorough explanation of the allergies.
Dr Sood was thoughtful and thorough in our consultation. He listened to the problems that we were having, asked some clarifying questions and came up with a diagnosis that our local GP had not, which resolved the problem our son was having. He also answered other questions we had about general health conditions and provided some recommendations that helped there as well. I would highly recommend him.
Dr Sood was great with my 5 month old son and got to the bottom of the issue straight away.
One of the best doctors I have met. He himself is calm person who explain everything so calmly that all your worries just disappear. Clear and detail explanation of the issue to make you understand and then further explanation of the medication to make you understand completely.
Dr Sood is experienced dealing with allergies and skin conditions i.e eczema. Dr Sood is amazing with kids and the parents, goes over and beyond for his clients. I would highly recommend Dr Sood he is an excellent paediatrician, you will not be disappointed.
Dr Sood was very good. He is working for full health, but for 'not too bad', which is what others have done. He has investigated and found the cause, and given medicine and advice to rectify the root cause. He explained clearly to my child and motivated him to work for full health.
Very clear, informative and patient. Went all through all history and thoroughly checked allergies and explained the outcomes and future step. Very good with toddler during testing as well.
