For Healthcare Providers
What can The Comprehensive Sleep Disorders Center at Middlesex Hospital do for You and Your Patients?
We are an accredited Sleep Disorders Center with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Our model of care is changing rapidly to better serve you and your patients.
We realized that patients felt they were on their own after the treatment was initialized for their sleeping disorder without alternatives if the treatment did not work or simply could not adjust to treatment. With a consult to the Middlesex Hospital Sleep Disorders Center your patient is going to receive not only consult and testing; they are entering a partnership to solve their sleeping problems through conventional methods of treatment and a look into alternative methods of treatment for the best solution to your patients sleeping disorder.
We are committed to not only diagnosing their sleeping problems but taking the journey of treatment with your patients keeping your office informed every step of the way.
