During the initial office consultation, one of our board-certified sleep specialists will review your medical records and ask you to provide a sleep history and a description of your problem. To discover what issues are occurring during sleep, we may ask you to undergo sleep testing in our sleep center or at home. Upon completion, our physician will review the results with you and discuss diagnosis and treatment options. We offer a wide variety of treatment for sleep disorders and work with each patient to Customize a solution that should work best for them.
Your provider may refer you to have a consultation by one of our sleep physicians in which your experience would be just like that of a self referral. In this case, your physician would directly refer you to us for a particular sleep study. Afterwards, you will follow-up and seek treatment with our sleep specialists. Your results will also be shared with your physician.
