How to Get Help
Your family physician can refer you to the Sleep Disorders Lab for sleep testing or for a consultation with a physician who is a sleep specialist with training in sleep disorders. The physician can diagnose sleep disorders as well as prescribe a treatment plan.
Although patients do "spend the night", a sleep study is considered an outpatient procedure. Patients will be asked to follow their normal sleep schedules and are monitored for six to eight hours in a private "bedroom." A trained sleep technician will record and score sleep with state-of-the-art sleep equipment. A physician specializing in sleep disorders interprets studies.
Please check with your primary insurance carrier for the specific coverage information. The Sleep Center is available to assist you with any questions you or your insurance carrier may have.
If you or someone you know suffers from a sleep disorder, please call The Sleep Center at 276.236.1756 for more information.
