Center for Sleep Medicine (Serving Adult and Pediatric Patients):
In both adults and children, sleep disorders are often warning signs of a more serious illness. Sleep ailments not only affect daily activities and lifestyle, but can be associated with additional medical conditions such as high blood pressure, premature heart disease and stroke.
Our Center for Sleep Medicine at offers a comprehensive, state-of-the-art diagnostic program to identify sleep disorders. It also offers a variety of non-invasive, nonessful treatments, which allow patients to return to restful sleep patterns.
We are accredited by the prestigious American Academy of Sleep Medicine in recognition of our outstanding level of patient care.
While mild sleep disorders may be evaluated through a consultation with a sleep specialist, patients experiencing more severe disorders may require an overnight stay at the Center to allow for careful and extended monitoring. The Center is staffed with specialists in pulmonary medicine, pediatric pulmonary medicine, neurology, otolaryngology, psychiatry, and obesity. Registered polysomnographic technologists also participate in the Center’s diagnostic evaluations.
Overnight stays can be arranged any night of the week, including weekends. Because the Center is equipped with a half-dozen beds (each private room is outfitted with a full-size mattress, a private bathroom, carpeting, wallpaper, and curtains), sleep studies for most patients can be accommodated without delay.
If you are a loud, habitual snorer, feel tired and groggy on awakening, experience sleepiness and fatigue during waking hours, are overweight or tend to choke, gasp or hold your breath during sleep, you may be suffering from an undiagnosed sleep disorder. You should discuss such symptoms with your physician, who can make an appointment for you at The Center for Sleep Medicine.
If you do not have a personal physician, call our Center at 201-894-3154 and you will be referred to one of our highly-skilled sleep specialists.
