The appointment was managed well. Dr Sood provided a clear understanding and explanation of the allergy results we received. Although it was unfortunate that we were unable to complete the skin prick test as we had not been notified not to take any antihistamine before the appointment.

Great. He explained how things work.
Dr Sood was very professional, and took time to explain what he was going to do. He put my mind at ease and was very gentle with my 6 month old baby. I left the appointment very happy, and would recommend Dr Sood's services to everyone who may need it.
Dr Sood is very good at what he does. He is very good at explaining the problem and also how the problem can be resolved. We have been seeing Dr Sood for over 2 years now and I would most definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you for your continued help.
One of the best doctors I had ever visited.
Very good explanation and he was cleared all our questions about our daughter’s
Dr Rajiv Sood has been looking after my daughter for a number of years now. He is professional and will explain everything in simple terms, he does not rush the appointments and most of all my daughter actually looks forward to seeing Dr Sood as he is very friendly and really good with children, making them feel comfortable as soon as they walk through his office door.
On meeting Dr Sood he seems a wonderful professional. He seems very thorough and patients able to communicate to us his thoughts and how we will proceed with Claudia. We feel we are in good hands with him.
Dr Sood is a fantastic doctor. Before seeing him I had seen two other doctors that were unable to help my children with their problems that had gone on for a year. Within our first appointment with Dr Sood he had carried all the required tests instantly and within three weeks we started to see visible results and on the road to recovery. I cannot express how thankful and grateful we are to Dr Sood. In future any paediatric problems we have Dr Sood will be my first port of call. Dr Sood is most certainly highly recommended by us.
Our experience was extremely positive. Dr Sood has many years as a highly experienced paediatrician and allergist, and this proved to be the case when he reviewed our son. We were extremely happy at our consultation and it was a relieved to have a quick diagnosis with reassurances when our baby was unwell having sought advice without success from other health professionals. We would highly recommend Dr Sood.
Extremely efficient, caring and pleasant.
He was wonderful, thorough and extremely patient.
Dr Sood listened and understood my concerns for my child, he explained clearly how to manage my child’s eczema and prescribed treatment for his skin which has significantly improved his eczema and changed my child’s quality of life.
Very good doctor. Takes a lot of time to listen and understand the issues and considers all the options. Provides excellent explanations. Would definitely see Dr Sood again if the need arises in the future.
Dr Rajiv is a very good doctor. He thoroughly explains everything I need to know, and I have been to see him for both of my daughters.

Dr Sood is a very caring doctor who has been instrumental in our son's care. His diagnostic skills (pin-pointing our son's illness in the very first meeting) and treatment for our son was spot on and his support throughout his illness was vital. I would highly recommend him.
Dr Sood is one of the most caring and excellent doctors I have ever come across.He is an absolutely excellent pediatrician, and not only does he have an amazing caring and gentle way with his child patient but also the entire family. If you are looking for an excellent, expert and caring pediatrician please see Dr Sood. No one else compares.
