Get the Facts

  • About 70 million Americans suffer from a sleep problem. 
  • Board-certified sleep medicine physicians have the training and expertise to diagnose and treat all sleep disorders.
  • Adults who regularly sleep less than seven hours per night have a higher risk of health problems such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and depression.
  • One of the disorders we see the most is sleep apnea – a dangerous condition characterized by complete or partial airway obstruction during sleep. Symptoms include habitual snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, morning headaches, trouble concentrating, memory or learning problems, and general moodiness, irritability or depression. 
  • Many people also don’t realize that they’re in greater danger of developing sleep apnea if they already suffer from other common diseases – such as Type 2 diabetes or hypertension.
  • Left untreated, sleep apnea may have a serious impact on overall health, even increasing risk of death.
