The first step to evaluating and managing a sleep disorder may be a daytime consultation with a sleep disorder physician. These office visits can be arranged by a parent or a referring physician.
At these consultations, the physician will:
- Discuss the problem in depth with you and your child.
- Examine your child.
- Devise a treatment or management plan with follow-up to monitor progress.
If our sleep disorder physician feels it is necessary, we may arrange for additional testing, like an overnight sleep study, or polysomnogram.
