Sleep Disorders: Who is at Risk?
Statistics show that people with thicker necks, a deviated septum, a receding chin, or enlarged tonsils or adenoids are at a greater risk of sleep apnea. People with chronic allergies or other health conditions resulting nasal congestion and breathing problems are also at risk.

A personalized treatment plan helps you avoid related complications and associated risks. Our sleep disorder treatments begin with a consultation with a board certified sleep disorder expert. Your consultation will include experienced care from a team of medical professionals, including sleep medicine specialists. We provide expert, personalized care, which includes:
