Find someone else. Without knowing anything about my medical history, Dr. Dakheel declared that I must have sleep apnea because I am overweight. He then said I needed a sleep study to confirm that. I should have gone running for the exit then, but I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt. I did the sleep study, and was advised that I would be informed of the results. I most certainly was: over my car speakerphone, announced to my passengers, the people standing outside my car, and quite likely to the customers on the other side of the front door of a business, which was about ten feet in front of me, with the door open. They didn’t need to be informed that I had sleep apnea and that I needed to come in and try a device. I informed the person on the phone that my relationship with this practice was over since my rights under HIPAA had been completely ignored and disregarded. I will take my business where HIPAA is respected.

While Dr. Dakheel has a good "bedside manner" and is quite knowledgeable about his areas of specialty, where he fails is in support of his patients after their visit. I have been trying to get an overnight sleep study schedule for over 2 months because Dr. Dakheel does not deem it worth his time to speak directly with the insurance company. I have already received one denial of coverage because of his negligence. Read your plan docs before seeing him. If you might have problems, see another MD.
