dr sakka is very focused caring pleasant doctor he solved my lung problems after I visited two other lung doctors and they missed my diagnosis

He is a 'gone in 60 seconds' doctor. You would be lucky if he listens to even one sentence. I had to draw this to the attention of my primary care physician who referred me to him. His medical notes are sloppy and careless. Stay away from this guy, will never ever recommend to anyone.

Office help misread my cpap records almost cost me my medical card for my D.O.T . My wife had to make multiple visits . I made multiple visits, finally they open the computer records to see I've been up to date on the required time of use of my machine. I returned to my D.O.T doctor with the record. She was surprised to see the change in the record. I'd never recommend these people!
Not a caring doctor he refused to be my doctor any more and they would not tell me why.
