I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and could not use a CPAK. Dr. Akkad was very personable and explained everything in detail. The office took my medical insurance which helped cover most of the cost of the appliance. I normally needed to stay in bed 11-12 hours to feel somewhat rested. After using the appliance for a while, I now feel well rested after 7-8 hours. This works. I recommend Dr. Akkad. His staff is friendly and helpful.

I am a pulmonary physician that sees a lot of patients with sleep apnea. For the right individual this device is almost a miracle. Minimum maintenance (no hoses no masks) and portability (no one bothers you at the airport) truly a plus. Going to Dr Akkad office is a pleasure and I can attest that is not only him but also all of his staff that are personable, extremely polite and very knowledgeable. To make it short I cannot live without my device I recommend him without hesitation

Dr. Akkad is attentive to your needs and what results you are wanting from your mouthpiece. When I went in to get a 2nd mouthpiece (I cracked my 1st one after 4 years)...he insisted on getting another, more accurate set of images and added a feature to my mouthpiece so I could fit rubber bands to it to keep my mouth closed. The first night I wore the new mouthpiece, my husband actually poked me to make sure I was alive...I wasn't snoring AT ALL!!! I sleep through the night now, with deep, restful sleep - and my husband does as well!

One of the best doctors I’ve ever had. He always took his time explaining things to me. The device is great. My only regret is I didn’t get it earlier! The staff is great too. They worked hard to get my insurance to cover the device.

Dr Akkad was outstanding. He is compassionate about helping you to resolve and find solutions for your snoring or sleep apnea. I opted for the mouthpiece option and could not be happier. My girlfriend says it has eliminated my snoring and I wake up feeling refreshed and like I got a good nights rest. If you are reading this I highly recommend Dr Akkad and I wish I would have done this years earlier.

Dr. Akkad is very experienced in the world of Dentistry and Sleep Apnea. He is honest and trustworthy. He cares about you as a patient which is unfortunately not always the case with some professionals. I had a wonderful experience with him and he genuinely cares about you and your health....not the money. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Akkad is very personable and realistic about expectations of care, he will do his part as care provider and I have to do my part as a willing patient. I had my first visit and I am optimistic about my treatment for OSA, improving my quality of sleep and life. He was attentive and took time when asking questions to listen to my answers/concerns. I will update upon completion of my next appt.

Dr. Akkad and office personnel were extremely professional, courteous, and helpful. Dr. Akkad helped to virtually eliminate my snoring problem (sleep apnea) with my custom dental appliance. Sleep is now a much more enjoyable, effective, and easily manageable process. On two previous occasions, I tried to sleep with a C-Pap machine. Both times were unsuccessful. If you have problems sleeping with the C-Pap machine. Or just tired of it and are looking for and different, but very effective solution

Dr Akkad's apnea mouth guard is definitely another way to go if you are CPAP intolerant or need to travel using a device that reduces sleep apnea events. The Dr. is very knowledgeable and will steer you in the right direction for which ever method works best for you. The device is adjustable and the DR. will tweak it as necessary. This device also has electronic monitoring, which is especially important if you work in the transportation industry. Government entities such as the FAA do app

I had undiagnosed sleep apnea for years. Finally got diagnosed and decided to do the oral appliance. Dr. Akkad made sure the oral appliance was custom fitted for me and has worked with me for about two years. If I ever have an issue, I can get an appointment very quickly. He is very professional, up to date on the latest sleep apnea treatment options and one of the nicest people you'll meet! Definitely recommend him!
