    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.

    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.

Long Wait Times

Spent time with me and seemed knowledgeable, but trying to contact for information after visit has been impossible. Stuck with answering machine every phone call. Insurance company had same issue--can't reach a live person except to make an appointment. The other complaint I have is that so far both visits have had over an hour wait time before seeing anyone--then another 20 minute wait to check out.
