Our board certified sleep physician can perform a throrough clinical evaluation of your sleep symptoms, coupled with determination of the association of your sleep disorder with your other medical conditions. This will help you to understand the relationship between poor quality sleep and other medical problems that you may have.
This is usually the next step after our physician has performed a clinical evaluation. The doctor may then recommend overnight sleep tests in our sleep center or testing in your home, when appropriate. The physician may recommend other types of sleep testing, such as Actigraphy, if you suffer from insomnia or restless leg syndrome.
After the necessary sleep testing is completed you may have a follow up visit with our physician to go over sleep test results and to formulate an effective treatment plan for achieving restful sleep. Treatment strategies include PAP therapy and/or oral appliances for sleep apnea, non-medication options for treatment of insomnia, and medication treatment for many other sleep disorders, such as restless leg syndrome and sleep related behavior disorders.
Once a treatment plan is formulated, you would then begin treatment for your sleep disorder. Our physician would then conduct follow up visits to evaluate the success of your treatment. Usually, follow up visits are vital to achieving the best possible and restful sleep.
