Helping You Get a Good Night’s Sleep
Quality sleep restores our bodies and minds and is necessary for good health. So when a person has a sleep disorder, their mental and physical health can be affected.
Most sleep problems are caused by difficulty breathing or abnormal breathing patterns related to obstruction of the airway. Sleep apnea is the most common sleep disorder, affecting more than 18 million Americans. This is a potentially life-threatening condition that causes a person to stop breathing, often many times, during sleep.
Symptoms of a sleep disorder may include:
- Forgetfulness and difficulty concentrating
- Fatigue and daytime sleepiness
- Morning headaches
- Decreased sex drive
Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that, if left undiagnosed, could result in stroke, hypertension, increased risk of heart problems, as well as an increased risk of accidents.
We also provide unattended, diagnostic home sleep testing. Home sleep tests are able when patients are suspected to have Obstructive Sleep Apnea with limited co- morbidities.
An in-person office visit with your provider and an order are required for all sleep testing. If you do not have a primary provider, you see our board certified sleep specialist in the DRH Sleep Institute. Please call for an appointment at 580.251.8181.

Programs & Services
Testing for sleep disorders involves spending the night in one of our comfortable rooms, where experienced technologists monitor your brain activity, airflow, breathing patterns, heart rate, oxygen saturation level, leg movement, chest and abdominal movement and sleep positions with a computerized sleep system. Our board-certified sleep physicians will then study and interpret the results and discuss what treatment options will be best for you.
