About Me

Sleep is our natural, essential, daily refresher… but sometimes it becomes complicated and burdensome part of our lives. That is why my approach for every patient is to find the root cause of their sleep problem and restore sleep back to its helpful role. By searching for the most accurate diagnosis, my hope is that we can minimize the use of medications and find the treatment that offers the most substantial long-term benefit.
To improve patient care I constantly evaluate new sleep technologies. In many ways, technology has worsened our sleep quality by causing us trouble in synchronizing our sleep patterns with our natural environment. However, recent advancements are changing how we fix sleep disorders with new treatments, improved decision making, and long-term care with remote monitoring.
I treat all sleep conditions, including: all forms of sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, parasomnias, narcolepsy and other disorders of excessive sleepiness, circadian rhythm disorders and insomnias.
