Great doctor horrible boss. He disrespects employees and blames staff for his mistakes. Example: he forces the front staff to double book then tells the patient it's the front desks fault for the two hour wait. Staff was promised health insurance when hired and doesn't deliver. There's a reason only one employee has lasted the year they have been open.

If you are looking for a great doctor this man is it. He is awesome and really cares about his patients. He found that I had a rare lung condition and it didn't take him but 2 visits at the most. I love this doctor and would recommend him to anyone with breathing trouble.

Was being treated by a pulmonologist, really his PA, for sleep apnea and was getting worse. Switched to Dr Kakkar and he found I have rare central sleep apnea. He is very professional, very caring and very smart. I just hope he never leaves this area of North Carolina.

He is the best. He is very thero with his exams. He is kind friendly and explains everything to you until you explain it.

He's a great doctor and knows his stuff.
This doctor spends time with you. He listens to what your saying. Just read the paper and he is on his own on Carthage st. In Sanford I'd drive to Raleigh for a doc like that.
