Below you'll find links to four of our most popular sleep disorder screening tools, with a brief explanation of each. Since the vast majority of our patients are being tested and / or treated for sleep apnea - a very serious and potentially life-threatening medical condition - you'll find that three of our four screening tools were created to guide those of you who suspect that you or someone you love, may be suffering from sleep apnea.
If, after you complete one or more of these questionnaires, your suspicions are confirmed we highly recommend that you seek immediate medical help. You can call us directly to schedule a private consultation with one of our center's board-certified sleep physicians, at 866-499-1588. We'll also be happy to walk you through the process for obtaining a sleep study or consultation referral from your private physician.
