What is sleep apnea? 

Sleep Apnea is a condition where you stop breathing while sleeping which, obviously, can create a lot of problems. There are many people who don’t even know they have sleep apnea. These people wonder why they are tired all of the time, and many of them also have other associated serious medical issues which can not only affect their quality of life abut also shorten their lives. If you are unsure about whether or not you have sleep apnea, we can administer a home sleep test which can even be read by a board-certified sleep physician for an official diagnosis.

Please note: Diagnostic services are available through a partnership with Residential Home Sleep Services. If you cannot come to one of our offices because you are too far away or are too busy, you can also have a home sleep test sent directly to your home through Residential Home Sleep Services.

What is snoring?

Snoring is the sound that occurs when turbulent airflow causes tissue in the nose and throat to vibrate while you are asleep.
