The lack of sleep is linked to long-term health consequences, including chronic medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Studies have also shown a connection of sleep habits with obesity, hypertension, mood disorders, immune functions and shortened life expectancy.

We diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Insomnia - The inability to fall asleep or stay asleep, can be caused by a number of factors
  • Sleep Apnea – Difficulty breathing during sleep due to a narrowing of the upper airway
  • Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) – Unpleasant sensations in the legs, especially at bedtime
  • Narcolepsy - Constant sleepiness and a tendency to sleep at inappropriate times

Approximately 40 million Americans suffer from chronic long-term sleep disorders. Diagnosing and treating sleep problems can lead to a better quality of life. Insomnia, sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome (RLS), narcolepsy, snoring and other sleep disorders prevent many from getting valuable sleep.

To diagnose a sleep disorder, we recommend an overnight sleep study. Our sleep specialists and technicians will monitor your sleep patterns to determine the most appropriate treatment options for your condition. The application of the monitoring wires is painless. While you are sleeping, the sleep technician will monitor all of the information being collected. The data collected will include brain waves to determine which stage of sleep you are in, air flow from the mouth and nose, oxygen saturation levels, respiratory rate, heart rate, body position, eye movements, snoring sounds, leg movements and breathing events.
