    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).

    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.

good sleep doctor

Dr Anderson asked the right questions and listened carefully to everything I had to say. She was attentive, friendly, and very knowledgable about my condition. She told me what I needed to know about diagnosis and treatment options. She maximized every minute of our appointment. I left her office feeling understood, heard and well-equipped to take the next steps in handling my condition. Also, Dr Anderson was very prompt. I arrived a few minutes early for my appointment and barely waited 5 minutes before she came out to the waiting room to usher me back to her office. I am very happy to have found Dr Anderson..
