What is a Sleep Study?
A sleep study is a painless test that examines the quality of your sleep. The information acquired during testing is summarized by our Board Certified Sleep Doctor.
We offer two options for sleep testing:
1) Home Sleep Study
This test is conducted in the comfort of your home. Patient’s will pick up the home sleep test from our two convenient locations. After completion of the study, the data is analyzed and interpreted by our sleep doctor.
A Polysomnograph is an in lab sleep study conducted at our sleep lab. A registered polysomnographic sleep technologist will administer the study. Patient’s should plan as if they are staying at a hotel for the night.
