Best decision I've made for my sleep apnea!
Dr. Akkad and staff are amazing, friendly and prompt. From the receptionist to Dr. Akkad, the customer service is top notch. I was never able to adjust to CPap as it made me claustrophobic and couldn't even fall asleep with the mask despite sleep aid and months of trying. His mouthpiece device was a lifesaver, literally! I have been going to his office for over 5 years and I can not recommend them enough! The device is easy and comfortable to wear and most importantly restored my sleep quality above and beyond my expectations! Don't bother going anywhere else!

Such an improvement in my life. I’m more rested with use of mouth guard. Awake once during the night instead of six times.

Dr Akkad helped adjust my appliance to hopefully reduce snoring. We will see. Since I was first given the appliance 3 years ago, I have gained 10-15 pounds and my snoring returned. Losing weight is my primary goal and not to need to have an appliance in my mouth nightly! Nice guy and appears knowledgeable !

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.
