Our services can help you get a good night’s sleep

Do you experience daytime sleepiness, feel tired or groggy upon waking, snore loudly, or gasp for breath while sleeping? If so, then you may have an undiagnosed sleep disorder. Phelps’ Sleep Center takes a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to diagnosing sleep-related disorders. Our team of sleep experts treats adults and children in a state-of-the-art diagnostic facility.

Sleep problems can affect your lifestyle, daily activities and your health. They can increase your risk for medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure or stroke. They can even increase your risk of having a car accident. If you are experiencing severe sleep disturbances, then you may require a sleep study. This painless, non-invasive procedure is performed while you sleep in the hospital overnight. It allows us to record and monitor your sleep patterns, including the efficiency of your breathing, the oxygen levels in your blood, and the activities of your heart, lungs, brain and muscles.

The Sleep Center has six comfortable private bedrooms, each with cable TV and its own bathroom. We accept many insurance and managed care plans. Check with your insurance provider to see if you need a referral from your physician.

To make your stay as comfortable as possible, each of our six private bedrooms has a private bathroom and cable TV.

What is sleep apnea?

More than 18 million people living in the U.S. have sleep apnea, a serious disorder that causes breathing difficulty during sleep. Sleep apnea occurs when your airway is constricted. This constriction impedes and may briefly interrupt your breathing, reducing your oxygen intake and lowering oxygen levels in your blood. As your body fights to get the oxygen it needs, it forces air through your narrowed airway, which causes the loud snoring that is a common sign of sleep apnea.

There are multiple treatment options for sleep apnea, including Positive Airway Pressure (PAP), oral appliances, and surgery, and the Sleep Center’s affiliated physicians and dentists are committed to finding the one that is right for you.

Treatment for sleep apnea can improve your health and quality of life. Keep in mind that not all snorers have sleep apnea, and a proper diagnosis is essential. If snoring or other sleep problems are disrupting your sleep (or the person who sleeps next to you), you consistently wake up feeling tired and think you might have apnea, then consult your primary care physician about a sleep evaluation at our Sleep Center. We are ready to help you.

More than 18 million people in the U.S. have sleep apnea. Whether sleep apnea wakes you once or many times during the night, it impairs the quality of your sleep.
