Sleep Center

About Our Sleep Center

If you consistently have trouble sleeping at night, or have an uncontrollable desire to sleep during the day, you may have a sleep disorder. Left untreated, sleep disorders may even endanger your physical and mental health. Your mood, memory, and ability to concentrate may all suffer. In extreme cases, there can be life-threatening consequences.

Narcolepsy, an inability to stay awake even during the day, is hazardous if you drive or operate machinery.

Sleep apnea, repeated interruptions of breathing, can have harmful effects on your brain, heart, and lungs.

Once you are referred to us:

You may be asked to spend an evening being monitored in one of our private rooms (depending on your symptoms). Each room is equipped with a television, and soft music to help you relax. We also have queen-size adjustable beds for patient comfort.

One of our specially trained technologists, using sophisticated equipment, will observe and monitor your breathing, heart activity, body movements, brain waves, and eye movement. The procedure is pain-free and in most cases, results are conclusive after just one session.

If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, there are several ways in which it can be treated, including weight loss, CPAP Therapy, and a possible airway reduction surgery.

Take our Sleep Quiz to see if you should talk to your physician about a potential sleep disorder.
