    We had the pleasure of meeting with Dr Saggar to discuss concerns we have regarding our daughters motor skill & intellectual delays. He made us feel reassured straight away, he asked a lot of relevant questions as well as giving us as parents the opportunity to decide the steps we deem best. Dr Saggar is very friendly, professional & we will certainly recommend him, should we be asked.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    What an absolute gentleman Dr.Saggar was. Everything was explained in a manner which would have been understandable even to a person with limited medical knowledge. He immediately put my son and I at ease. He did an extensive examination but only after listening to us and us telling him what had been going on and what journey we had been on to get to him which took 6 years so he had a lot of information to absorb. Owing to the fact that the illness had been going on with some considerable time I had sent a copy of my sons medical history to him before the appointment which he thanked me for and said it had made the consultation so much easier. A wonderful experience with a person first and then a docter.

    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    My experience with Dr Saggar has been simply life changing. I’d seen 5 paediatricians about my concerns for my 5 month baby and all of them had dismissed my concerns using crude measures. Dr Saggar thoroughly examined my son and noted his plagiocephaly, deep philtrum, wide stance, pronounced fontanelle and flat facial profile. With these observations we are now being referred to GOSH
