A solid night’s sleep is the foundation of good health. When counting sheep no longer helps you fall and stay asleep, our Sleep Disorders Center can help. Our experts diagnose and treat a wide range of sleep disorders from insomnia and sleep apnea to snoring, narcolepsy and sleepwalking.
Sleep disorders are often diagnosed by physician specialists in neurology, pulmonary medicine and ear, nose and throat medicine, but can often detected by your primary care physician as well. If you are having problems falling asleep or staying asleep, talk to your doctor. He or she can help determine whether you would benefit from a sleep evaluation.
- In preparation for your evaluation, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire. We recommend having your partner review your answers if possible as he or she may add valuable information.
- Before your evaluation at the Sleep Disorders Center, you will be interviewed and examined by our physicians who are certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine.
- Our physicians will determine if you need further testing such as an overnight sleep test in our Center.
Treatment for sleep disorders varies based on your specific issue. For sleep apnea, treatment options may include weight loss, CPAP (a mask worn at night connected to an air compressor), surgery, medications or dental appliances. For narcolepsy and periodic limb movement syndrome, medication is very effective. Our sleep specialists will develop an individualized care plan based on your health and your sleep evaluation results.
