Sleep medicine specialists can help if you have trouble sleeping. Your primary care provider can refer you to one. You can also make an appointment directly.
Sleep studies can be used to diagnose issues. They are done in a sleep lab. A sleep technician uses high-tech monitoring equipment to record your sleep patterns. A sleep medicine specialist can then determine the kind of therapies that may help.
Sleep medicine specialists are medical physicians who have completed their education in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Neurology, Psychiatry or Pulmonology and have received extensive training in sleep-related issues.
