Office visits are scheduled during regular daytime hours and typically take about an hour. During your visit, you will complete initial questionnaires which are reviewed with you by our board certified sleep physicians. In addition, you may be asked to bring recent tests or office notes from your referring physician. During your initial interview the history of your sleep problem will be discussed in detail, and it is often helpful if your spouse or bed partner accompanies you to visit in order to provide additional information. The possible causes of your difficulty with sleep are reviewed, and your sleep testing will be schedule if testing is indicated.

We perform overnight sleep studies most night of the week, and the night of your sleep study is arranged at your convenience. Please have a light dinner before reporting for your study, if you wish to bring a snack with you fell free to do so. Do not consume caffeinated beverages after 12 noon since this can affect your sleep quality. It will greatly help you bedtime preparations if you arrive at your scheduled appointment time so that our technicians can devote their full attention to preparing you for bed. If you arrive early, you may wait since our patients are staggered at specific times during the evening.

Daytime Sleep Studies

In addition to nighttime studies, some patients require daytime testing to evaluate excessive daytime sleepiness or sleep disorders such Narcolepsy. Daytime studies are performed after previous sleep study night. We perform two different daytime tests: the Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) and the Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT). During each of these studies, testing is performed for a brief periods during the day. The procedures for the MSLT and MWT will be reviewed for you in advance for your appointment.
