Missing a good night’s sleep is more than just annoying: it can slow you down the next day, keep you from functioning well at work, and might even contribute to severe accidents.
But did you know that long-term sleep problems can also increase your risk for high blood pressure, heart failure or stroke, and have even been linked to weight control problems? Studies show that one-third of the general population has a sleep disorder and nearly 60 percent of individuals with certain diseases (such as congestive heart failure) have a sleep disorder.
If you’re having trouble getting the sleep you need, our Sleep Disorders Center (accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine) can help you get to the cause of your problem and provide treatment. Our sleep specialists diagnose and treat sleep-related problems in children (age 4 and over) and adults, including circadian rhythm disorders, insomnia, narcolepsy, restless legs, shift-work problems and sleep apnea.
If you or someone you love has trouble sleeping, please call for an initial consultation (you can also ask your doctor for a referral):
