If you're struggling with sleep disorders like insomnia, restless leg syndrome, and sleep apnea, we can help. Treating sleep disorders is no different than treating any other medical problem. After a thorough consultation, patients who have clear indications for diagnostic sleep studies will be referred for an overnight study, followed by a personalized treatment plan. Recommendations may include medications prescribed by your physician, or non-drug approaches by a sleep psychologist. We strive to help you understand the nature and treatment of your sleep disorder, and partner closely with your primary care physician to provide a comprehensive ongoing treatment plan.
