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.

Follow up visit today for a sleep study. She's very passionate about educating people on sleep disorders. I never thought that was an issue I had but all the signs point to it and after seeing NUMEROUS doctors last year looking for a cure for my horrible cough, she found the answer! Will follow up with her on allergies next. Looking forward to it as the office staff was fabulous! So excited to finally getting much needed sleep!
I had a 10:30 appt for my sinuses and was not brought into a room until 11:30 and then I sat in there for another half hour. I heard the dr outside the room asking how many more pts she had to see before lunch. She finally came in and began asking me about my sleep habits and if I had ever had allergy testing. I was there for a sinus infection not for a sleep issue. She was very abrupt and didn't have the time to listen to what I was telling her. I would never go back t that office. They were more concerned with collecting my copay than treating me.
I went to see Dr.Berson for a cough that I've been having for several months. She started talking about sleep and apnea and told me its because I snore. I tried to explain to her that I have no issues with sleep.She refused to listen to anything that I had to say told me I need to loose a few pounds, gave me an Rx for sleep study told me to make 5 appointments to come back to see her every month, started yelling at the staff like animals to make sure I pay before I walk out the door. It was an horrific exprience, I will never go back. Oh and my cough was taken care of by another caring doctor.
