A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

I absolutely love the way he just calls it like it needs to be. No beating around the bush. I also really appreciate his conservative approach to my nerve issues. He has been treating my sleep apnea for 3 years now, and it is the best thing I ever did getting a CPAP. Everytime I go to the office, the wait is minimal. Glad I have him, very comforting
My husband has Chiari and we have always struggled with Neurologist. Mainly they just brush him off because they are not familiar enough with Chiari and they always seem to be above everyone and try to push everybody out the door. That is not what we experienced with Santamaria he was very positive, listened to everything we had to say and ordered every test we were hoping for before we even asked. We were very pleased with him. He was very polite and seemed to be concerned. We didn't have to wait very long to see him either.
Dr. Santamaria is very personable and will spend the time needed to consult with you. He asks good questions, and even though my son just needed preventative checkup and nothing major had to be changed, I was very happy with his care. His staff is FANTASTIC! They have gone out of their way to help my son get his medication, even after we had a lapse in insurance and he was waiting to get an appointment with Harris Health Gold Card system. Dr. Santamaria and staff are one of the best you can find!
