A consultation is required to evaluate you before the Sleep Study is ordered. There are several variations of Sleep Study, one of which may be better suited to your individual circumstances. We schedule sleep study at one of the local sleep laboratories.
Once your sleep study is scheduled, you will receive an information package and instructions from the sleep lab. You will need to complete the questionnaire to bring with you to the sleep lab. Follow the instructions given by the sleep lab.

We recommend that on the day of your sleep study, you avoid any alcoholic drinks and any caffeinated drinks such as coffee and soda in the afternoon. Continue all your medications on the day of your sleep study including the medications you take before bedtime.
We will schedule a follow up appointment for you about 1 week after the sleep study to discuss the results of your test and to recommend the treatment options to you.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to call our office at (727) 863 – 7487.
