What Is Sleep Medicine?
Sleep medicine is a medical subspecialty devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disturbances and disorders, including difficulty initiating and maintaining sleep, abnormal sleep, and excessive sleep. These conditions are widespread and can significantly affect an individual’s health—emotionally, mentally, and physically. At West Coast Pulmonary & Sleep Disorders Center, our sleep medicine specialists are board certified in this specialty. What’s more, our sleep center is accredited by the American Commission for Health Care Services, which demonstrates our commitment to high-quality, patient-centric care.
