There is no question that not getting enough sleep can have real repercussions in your life.  Being overtired or fatigued increases the risk of being in a motor vehicle accident, decreases productivity at work or school, impacts personal relationships, and can be very detrimental to your physical and mental health.  The quick answer to this public health problem is for everyone to get more sleep.  But if you are among the 50-70 million people the Centers for Disease Control estimates are affected by sleep disorders, getting more sleep may require more than an earlier bed time.

The first step to getting the sleep you need to be healthy is to get a diagnosis.  Most people begin this process by meeting with their regular doctor to discuss the problems they are having with sleep.  A diagnosis may be made by that doctor or by a sleep doctor after additional testing is conducted.  Having the diagnosis enables you to find the strategies, resources, and treatment options that will help you manage your disorder and get the amount of sleep you need.

Here are helpful resources related to sleep disorders in general and for each of the most common sleep disorders.

Client Reviews

"I was especially impressed with Andrew the Respiratory Therapist who reviewed my study with me and answered my questions. Andrew thoroughly explained everything about the Cpap machine-from start to finish. I never felt rushed and was assured I could contact him with any additional questions or needs. Andrew told me he would follow up with a call in a week and he did. I believe this center performed the study appropriately and the added benefit of having Andrew teach me about the machine and what to expect was a bonus."

"I recommend them highly!! I took my 2 year old daughter for a sleep study and was very impressed. Our sleep technician was amazing with her, very patient and kind. The DVD we brought to watch while getting her hooked up got stuck in the TV and they vowed to return it. We got a call the next day checking on our daughter and saying how sweet she was, they mentioned the DVD. Several days later, we received the DVD plus a new copy of the Lion King with a nice note. They are very good at what they do and if they can make a 2 year old feel at ease, they can probably do the same with anyone!!"
