JWM Neurology Comprehensive Sleep Disorders Program
JWM Neurology offers a comprehensive sleep disorders program, and our physicians see patients with sleep disorders. Members of our multidisciplinary, fellowship-trained Sleep Physician Team have special expertise in diagnosing and treating all types of sleep and wake disorders, including sleep apnea.
Did you know that snoring, frequent acid reflux, or unexplained chronic fatigue can be signs of a sleep disorder? If left untreated, sleep disorders can lead to obesity, high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke and even death. Sleep disorders are treatable and should not be ignored.
