It is our intention to assure both the patient and their physician’s office is aware of what is going on through each stage of the process. We are dedicated to handle all referrals and results in a timely manner — within a two-week turnaround time. Our office also handles all insurance precertification.

Our services include:

A polysomnography is an evaluation of how your body functions during sleep. Sensors are placed on your head, face, chest and legs to monitor and record activities of your brain, heart, lungs and certain muscles as you sleep. The recording of these signals is called a polysomnogram (PSG). This information is then utilized by our Sleep Specialist to diagnosis your sleep disorder.

For individuals working the night shift where overnight sleep studies may not be convenient, we offer polysomnography during the daytime. A polysomnography is an evaluation of how your body functions during sleep. Sensors are placed on your head, face, chest and legs to monitor and record activities of your brain, heart, lungs and certain muscles as you sleep. The recording of these signals is called a polysomnogram (PSG). This information is then utilized by our Sleep Specialist to diagnosis your sleep disorder.

You may be a candidate for an in-home sleep study to evaluate your sleep quality. These studies are performed over two nights in the comfort of your own home and provides an evaluation of how your body functions during sleep. You will be provided with a portable device that records and stores activities of your heart and lungs. This test is also a Polysomnogram, but because it is done at home it is not attended by a Sleep Technologist nor does it monitor your brain activity. Certain health conditions can be a contraindication for a Home Sleep Study so this test may not be right for you. Your doctor will determine if this is an appropriate option for you.

If you are diagnosed with sleep disordered breathing, your doctor may recommend a study of titration with a CPAP machine. CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. This is an air pump that gently opens the airway with air pressure, as you sleep, to avoid closure of the airway from tissue in the neck and airway. As this study is performed, air pressure is increased through the night until a pressure is reached in which the sleep events are eliminated and you are able to sleep without incident.

Your doctor might recommend a study with Bi-Level PAP machine if you have been diagnosed with sleep disordered breathing, especially central sleep apnea. This is also recommended if Titration with the CPAP fails. The BiPAP machine will deliver the same type of air pressure as a CPAP machine; however it has two variations of pressure, one for inhalation and one for exhalation. This is for both comfort and necessity. Bi-Level PAP titrations can include different versions of Bi-Level PAP such as Bi-Level Spontaneous, Bi-Level Spontaneous/Timed (Bi-PapS/T), and Auto Servo Ventilation (ASV). We are committed to providing the best possible care to our patients.

If you experience excessive sleepiness during the day, we will administer diagnostic tests to evaluate your sleep condition. The Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) measures how quickly you fall asleep during a daytime nap. By testing several naps throughout the day, we can determine average sleep latency and presence of REM sleep. MSLT is used to diagnose and differentiate narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia. This test always follows an all night Polysomnogram. This is to ensure you had a successful 6-8 hours of sleep the previous night to in order to provide more accurate results.


A sleep study may be beneficial for children ages 3 and older who have difficulty getting up in the morning, paying attention in class, falling asleep in school, are diagnosed with ADHD disorders, enlarged tonsils or adenoids, are overweight, or have certain genetic or neuromuscular disorders.

This is a basic Polysomnogram for pediatric patients. Our staff will work with your child to create a nonthreatening and comforting environment while monitoring and collecting the same information that is collected on an adult. With a pediatric patient however, CO2 monitoring is also done. During the test, sensors are placed in the same areas as a normal Polysomnography to record and monitor the body's activities while sleeping. This information is then utilized by the Sleep Specialist to diagnosis the pediatric sleep disorder. If you think your child may be a candidate for a sleep study, download and take the Pediatric Epworth Sleepiness Scale. It only takes 2-3 minutes and can help you and your doctor determine if a sleep study may benefit your child.

If your child suffers from sleep apnea (interrupted breathing during sleep), our sleep medicine team is equipped and experienced in assisting your child with a CPAP machine designed for pediatric patients. Learn More.

The Maintaining Wakefulness Test (MWT) measures how long your are able to stay awake in a quiet, dark environment. MWT is typically done when your ability to remain awake or your inability to remain awake constitutes a public or personal safety issue. MWT may be indicated in a person with excessive daytime sleepiness to access response to treatment. During this test a patient is asked to stay awake for as long as they can without falling asleep when put in the perfect environment to facilitate sleep. This test is performed after a an all-night Polysomnogram to ensure you have had a successful 6-8 hours of sleep the previous night.
