One third or more of the population suffers from some sleep problem. That means, you or someone you know likely has a sleep disorder that's diminishing quality of life.
If you snore loudly, stop breathing while you sleep, wake up gasping for air, are constantly fatigued and falling asleep suddenly during the day, these symptoms could indicate a sleep disorder.
Chronic sleep disturbances can impact not only your mood/mental health, but your health in general. Many sleep studies have shown a close relationship to other chronic illnesses such as heart problems, diabetes, and depression.
Our sleep clinic offers complete evaluation and treatment focusing on long-term solutions for sleep disorders including sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia, and sleep-related movement disorders such as restless leg syndrome.
The sleep doctors at Palomar Health take the time to develop personalized treatments to help you achieve quality sleep each night. They work closely with the Palomar Sleep Lab and other local facilities who offer home sleep apnea tests or in-lab polysomnogram (full overnight sleep study) to help diagnose sleep disorders.
If you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea in the past but have trouble using the CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure or other PAP) device, Palomar Health will work closely with you and companies who provide trained Respiratory therapists.
Dr. Mashayekhi leads our staff and has specialty training in pediatric sleep medicine at Texas Children’s Hospital. Her expertise applies not only to sleep apnea, but also other disorders such as sleep terrors, restless leg syndrome, behavioral sleep disorders, etc.
