Every since I have been seeing Dr. Sakkal, I have had a special bond with him. He has helped me when no other Dr. Would give me the time of day or even listen to my problem. But Dr. Sakkal, listens and helps the best way he can. I don't care what anybody says about him. I love him as my Dr. And I'm so glad I'm back with him. He helped me with my weight problem. Which since I haven't seen him in awhile I'm strugglin with it again. But I have faith in him that he and I will get back to where I was
