    I took my 16 year old son to see Dr Sood for his ongoing cough and chest problem . I was really pleased to see how friendly, professional and thoughtful Dr Sood was . He was extremely thorough with his examination and diagnosis. He arranged for all the test and investigation that was necessary. He also explained it all very well to my son in simple but clear words . I am a medical professional and university lecturer myself and l was really impressed with Dr Sood. I have no hesitation to recommend him to others .
