Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that can lead to a number of health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. If you think you may have sleep apnea, it's important to get tested and treated as soon as possible.
At our office, we offer complimentary sleep apnea evaluations for all patients. If you're found to have sleep apnea symptoms, we'll recommend a sleep test to determine the severity of your condition. The sleep test is done at home while you sleep, and we'll provide you with a special instrument to collect your sleep data.
Once we have your sleep data, we'll send it to a medical doctor specializing in sleep studies. If the doctor confirms that you have sleep apnea, we'll start the process of getting approval from your medical insurance. Once you're approved, we'll determine your total out-of-pocket cost and help you decide on the best treatment option.
The entire process of sleep apnea evaluation and treatment typically takes about 4 weeks, but it may take longer in some cases. Once your sleep apnea appliance is ready, you'll come to our office to try it on and get instructions on how to use and care for it. We'll call you back to the office in about 6 weeks to check your progress and see how effective the appliance is.
If you're concerned about sleep apnea, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us today. We're here to help you get the sleep you need to live a healthy and happy life.
