Sleep. It’s not just a pause from daily life, it’s crucial for renewing mental and physical health. About 40 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. Essentially, they snore loudly and/or stop breathing during sleep. An estimated 95 percent — or 36 million Americans — remain undiagnosed and untreated.
Many People Fail to Get a Good Night’s Sleep
If you’re not getting enough sleep, you begin to build up sleep debt. Your sleep debt continues to grow as you add on more and more restless hours. The longer this cycle continues, the drowsier you become and the greater the effect on your physical and mental health.
Poor sleep over long periods of time can cause or contribute to high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, congestive heart failure, and/or diabetes.

We test for and provide treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) as well as diagnose many other sleep disorders including:
- Difficulty initiating and maintaining sleep (DIMS)
