Diagnosing Sleep Disorders and Sleep Apnea 

How We Diagnose & Treat Sleep Disorders and Sleep Apnea

Diagnosing 

Sleep disorders can be treated through non-invasive techniques. If you suspect that you have sleep apnea or any other sleep disorder, speak with your health care provider about ordering a sleep study. ​Click here to take our self-scoring questionnaire.

The Sleep Study  

A sleep study is painless. Patients simply spend the night in a comfortable, private, sleep study room. Our rooms are decorated to make you feel like you're sleeping in your bedroom, not a facility.
