Mr Sagar has received several compliments from his patients, colleagues and his team members. Examples of couple of patients’ feedback are as follows.

“The pain I had prior to my surgery was not only physical, also mental. It lessened my quality of life.Since Mr Sagar completed the surgery, I have felt immensely better. Better than before the fistula and abscess appeared. I am eternally grateful for everything he has done to help me.”

“My consultant was very good and a pleasure to deal with. I felt I was in excellent hands.”
