Dr. Siobhan M Kuhar has the following 2 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
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.
An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

This is a 'sleep doctor', who focuses on snoring and behavioral conditioning. Wasn't interested in scoping my sinuses or reviewing the MRI results obtained by another MD. I was looking for a less aggressive surgical option and a second opinion. I found the least competent doctor in this field. Apparently she prefers dealing sleep issues and not physical problems. I ended up going to a surgeon who teaches at Albany Medical and has 35 years of surgical experience.
Dr, Kuhar initially presents personable on subsequent visits , however you will find that she possesses a sheltered, vain, and subdued affect with patients. She performed an MSLT test for narcolepsy on me imcompetently and in fact admitted her foolishness. After my diagnosis with severe narcolepsy, she followed up with me once a year. She often incompletely filled out prescription form and when I ( a physician myself) scribbled a substitute signature due to it being late on Friday afternoon and that I would have no sleep medication for 3 days, she expelled me from her practice. Be for warned .
