Our services

Many people have occasional problems sleeping. But if you have frequent difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, if you’re often tired in the daytime or if you snore so loudly that others complain, you may have an underlying medical problem that can be effectively treated by a doctor who has been specially educated in sleep medicine.


Our Sleep Disorders Center at the Health Center at Bethlehem Township has doctors who are sleep specialists. Our experienced staff also includes registered polysomnographic technologists. They will use the most advanced technology to diagnose your problem and provide effective treatment. In fact, more than 75 percent of our patients are treated without medication or surgery. Don’t settle for another sleepless night or bone tired day. Discuss your symptoms with your physician to see if you might need a sleep study.

Anyone, at any age, can have a sleep disorder. If you are overweight, snore or have high blood pressure, you may be at increased risk for a sleep disorder. There are more than 80 known sleep disorders that can affect your sleep and daytime function. It is estimated that more than 40 million Americans suffer from some type of sleep disorder. Common sleep disorders include:

 

What to expect

Sleep disorders testing is painless and takes place in a comfortable, homelike setting. You’ll have a private room with a television, full-size bed and a private bathroom with shower. You’ll also receive a free continental breakfast in the morning. While you sleep, experienced technologists will use state-of-the-art equipment to monitor your:

  • Brain wave activity
  • Heart rate and rhythm
  • Breathing patterns
  • Body position
  • Blood oxygen levels
  • Limb movements
  • Snoring

Most major insurance carriers will cover your test.

 

Results and treatment

With your physician’s order, you will get your test results the morning after your study by meeting with one of our board-certified sleep specialists. Treatment for your sleep disorder will be based on your symptoms and their severity. Some sleep disorders can be cured by losing weight or reducing alcohol consumption. A few require medications or surgery. But the majority of patients who breathe abnormally during sleep are treated safely with a positive-pressure breathing device or a small, comfortable oral appliance worn while sleeping.


Don’t lose another night’s sleep. The sooner you call, the sooner you can be tested, diagnosed and treated. Everyone deserves a good night's sleep, including you and your family.
