In addition to offering testing and diagnosis services, Feeling Great Sleep Centers also provide appropriate treatment (mostly in the form of CPAP / BiPAP therapy) for our patients with sleeping disorders, such as sleep apnea.
Depending on the results of your testing and subsequent diagnosis, your doctor – whether he or she is one of our center’s board-certified sleep physicians or your personal physician - will provide you with recommendations for treating your sleeping disorder.

For example, many of our patients suffer from sleep apnea - an all-too-common and very serious sleeping disorder. In the vast majority of these cases, their physicians prescribe CPAP / BiPAP therapy, which is very effective in treating this dangerous medical condition.
However, patients who been diagnosed with other sleeping disorders such as insomnia, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, or excessive daytime sleepiness may be treated using a variety of methods including lifestyle changes, position therapy, medications, oral appliances, and / or other surgical procedures (performed by our board-certified sleep physicians, dentists, or ENT specialists).
In order to be treated with CPAP / BiPAP (or oxygen) therapy, one of Feeling Great's physicians or your personal doctor must issue a Certificate of Medical Necessity, or CMN. This "prescription" contains specific information regarding the type of therapy you'll receive as well as critical information about recommended equipment, supplies, pressure settings, and more.
Feeling Great Sleep Centers not only provide top-notch consultation, testing, diagnosis, and treatment services, but we also ensure that they're delivered in the most affordable, convenient, and stress-free way possible.

Experienced respiratory therapists and registered sleep technologists. Our staff is also available by phone (even better, all calls are answered by a "live" person - not a machine!) to answer your questions thoroughly.A unique patient compliance program and support group, A.W.A.K.E. Our quarterly CPAP / BiPAP support meetings, held in our corporate offices in Durham, NC - are very popular with our CPAP users because they offer a relaxed way to exchange ideas, tips, and stories with other CPAP users and get their most pressing treatment questions answered by our team of experts.Regular one-, three-, six-, and nine-month follow-up appointments. Since we know that our patients' paths to recovery are dependent on how well they transition into their CPAP treatment plans (and that some of our patients find this process easier than others) we schedule all of our CPAP / BiPAP therapy patients for follow-up visits one, three, six, and nine months into their treatment. Not only does this benefit our patients’ health, but it also means that their insurance carriers are far more likely to approve their treatment expenses.
