Our sleep center is committed to identifying sleep problems and helping you achieve a restful, healthy sleep. Accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), the center is focused on providing comprehensive, high-quality patient care.

- Periodic Limb Movement Disorder
- Sleep Related Seizures
The sleep center offers quiet, private rooms equipped with state-of-the-art technology in order to provide patients with a feeling of safety and relaxation during the test. During a sleep test (polysomonogram), body function including brain waves, heart rhythms, respirations, oxygen level, as well as eye, breathing, leg and muscle movements are recorded and measured.
Our dedicated team of sleep medicine specialists has extensive training to identify and diagnose a wide range of sleep disorders. These specialists include three board-certified sleep medicine physicians and eight technologists, seven of whom are registered polysomonographers.
