Sleep Study

If you suffer from loud snoring, disrupted sleep, or daytime sleepiness, your sleep activity may be to blame. A sleep study involves spending the night in our sleep lab, attached to electrodes and other machinery which monitors your brain activity, heart rate, breathing rate, and body movements while you sleep. The results of this testing can help us diagnose any problems and help with recommending treatment.
