  • Snoring
  • Narcolepsy
  • Insomnia (difficulty falling or staying asleep)

Contact us to take a free Sleep Quiz to see if you might benefit from the services of the Sleep Disorders Clinic. 

 

During a patient's first visit or consultation, a sleep specialist will consult with the patient to determine the nature of his or her sleep disorder, and to determine whether further testing, such as a sleep study, is necessary. Once a study has been conducted, eperts will work with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan.   

 

No prior authorization is needed for primary physicians making referals and patients with PPOs who can make their own self-referrals.
