A Sleep Test Center That Facilitates Restful Slumber for Patients in Clearwater, New Port Richey, Palm Harbor, FL, and Other Nearby Cities
A sleep test can be a valuable tool in diagnosing a variety of mild to severe sleep disorders. Unfortunately, sleep problems aside, many patients feel anxious about sleep testing because they can’t envision themselves dozing off in front of a camera at a medical clinic. Patients also may find it hard to believe that they will be able to duplicate the sleep issues they’re having at home when they’re being tested in a unfamiliar, hospital-like setting. For a good night’s rest, patients in Clearwater, New Port Richey, Palm Harbor, Trinity, Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, FL, and other nearby cities can turn to St. Francis Sleep Center. If you would like to enjoy a more wakeful, healthy life, come see us. You’ll be lulled to dreamland in our comfortable, serene, state-of-the-art facility, and while you doze, we’ll discreetly complete a medically supervised evaluation to determine the underlying cause and severity of your particular issue.
The St. Francis sleep test center was founded in 2007 by Dr. Frank Averill, a board-certified sleep medicine physician with more than 25 years of experience. At St. Francis, you’ll benefit from comprehensive consultative services administered by Dr. Averill and his expertly trained staff using the latest diagnostic equipment. After evaluating the results of a sleep test, Dr. Averill can diagnose a host of conditions, including:
- Sleep apnea, which can be obstructive sleep apnea, central apnea, or a combination of the two (mixed apnea)
- Sleep-related neurological disorders, such as restless leg syndrome and narcolepsy
- Sleep-related seizure disorders
- Parasomnias, such as sleep-walking, -talking, and -eating
Even if you often fall asleep easily, your sleep may not be restful. If you believe you may have a sleep disorder, you are encouraged see a physician for a proper diagnosis, which may include a sleep test. Sleep disorders should be taken seriously because, in addition to making you feel tired, they can be indicative of or lead to serious health conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, depression, headaches.
