In addition, I am board certified in sleep medicine and am able to treat sleep-related illnesses, such as obstructive sleep apnea and insomnia while providing guidance on CPAP management. My patients also enjoy conveniences similar to services in a concierge practice - timely appointments, same-day visits and the ability to contact me during and after hours. By promoting physical and mental well-being and coaching healthier lifestyle choices, I empower my patients to live the best life possible.
