One in three adults has complaints about their sleep. The quality of your sleep has a direct impact on the quality of your life.The importance of a good night’s sleep, however, is all too often overlooked.
Over 70 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder, yet, only 15% of those affected have been diagnosed.
Current medical literature shows the impact poor sleep can have on your health. Short sleep and obstructive sleep apnea can worsen your blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular health, and can minimize your energy level.
Treatment of sleep disorders has been shown to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, hypertension,
and uncontrolled diabetes.

We Provide a comprehensive solution for the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders.
Our centers are constituted by two bed sleep laboratories where we perform tests like sleep studies or polysomnography (PSG), multiple sleep latency tests (MSLT), and maintenance of wakefulness tests (MWT).
We are able to diagnose and care for sleep disorders like obstructive and central sleep apnea, narcolepsy, parasomnias, insomnias, and many others.
These tests are performed after a thorough evaluation by our medical director or at the request of a consulting physician. We also have a CPAP Clinic, in which our certified respiratory therapist, under the supervision of the medical director, addresses any issues that the patient may have.
The CPAP clinic focuses on educating the patient about their sleep disorder and serves as a source of encouragement for proper use of the CPAP to obtain greater compliance.
