Dr. Kakkar is an extremely good listener, honest and forthright person, which are crucial assets to find in a doctor! With any questions, he spends the time required to explain about my condition or medicine. Being a patient of his for approximately five years and feel confident with the medical care provided by him. The staff is professional, helpful, and yet friendly. Minimal waiting. I would highly recommend this practice.

My experience with the Prana Health Sleep Center, has been great. "It's a great place to work if you are looking to move up in your career." I like the idea that you can really grow with the company, and Dr. Kakkar and his family are always willing to help you grow." I am pleased to write this review on behalf of my longtime boss and friend Dr. Kakkar. It has been a real privilege to know Dr. Kakkar. He is one of the most knowledgeable Sleep Disorders specialist that I have worked with in my

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.
