    Dr. Sood is undoubtedly one of the most caring, thorough and reassuring doctor there is. He takes time to explain everything to us, checking if there is anything else we would like to know. He is very responsive and always exude a calm, kind demeanour. He has helped our son get better. Really thankful for his time and wisdom.

    The doctor was very thorough in absolutely every aspect of the investigation, calming the obvious nervousness of us (the parents) and treating our daughter with the utmost calmness (she is still “scared” of doctors generally speaking). Highly recommended!! Would not want to meet him again in a professional manner :), but if it is required, we would not want to choose a different doctor!

    Dr Sood was really patient with my 3 year old daughter who was apprehensive about the skin prick tests. He also explained everything he was doing and the outcome to me very clearly. He also put up with me singing and reading silly versions of a story to my daughter to distract her!

    Dr. Sood transformed our lives. Our baby cried incessantly for five and a half weeks and was repeatedly misdiagnosed by the GP and health visitors. Within minutes of meeting Dr. Sood, I felt confident as he truly listened to what I was saying. He examined our son fully (noticing a physical defect that had not been picked up in any of the neonatal checks). His diagnosis and prescription meant out baby was on the road to recovery within a day. His letters are clear and detailed. I feel so lucky that our son is under his care.

    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.
