Explanation

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 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.
