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.

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.

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.
