Sleep Disorders
Forty to fifty million Americans are needlessly suffering from undiagnosed or misdiagnosed sleep disorders. These disorders can be associated with other medical problems, such as hypertension, heart attacks, angina and stroke.

Sleep disorders include obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, snoring and narcolepsy.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the most common of the sleep disorders, is especially prevalent in middle age men and women. In the United States, it is estimated that more than three million men and 1.5 million women suffer from some degree of sleep apnea.

Signs and symptoms of sleep disorders include:

  • Morning dry mouth
  • Morning headaches
  • Morning confusion
  • Intellectual impairment
  • Impotence
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Snoring loudly
  • Crawling/creeping sensation of the legs at night

If you think you may have a sleep disorder, our team of pulmonologists and board-certified sleep specialists are available to you for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.

Call (212) 523-8914 for more information.
