Institute of Sleep Medicine - Good Bye!
We hope you have found your stay at the Institute of Sleep Medicine's sleep diagnostics lab worthwhile and informative as well as ultimately helpful with your sleeping problems.
We would appreciate hearing from you regarding any compliments, suggestions or criticisms you might have so that we can continuously improve and upgrade our service to patients. While we can't always implement every suggestion for reasons beyond our control we would still like to hear from you so such ideas can be considered.
Since this lab was founded in 1992, sleep researchers have learned more and more about the importance of a good night's sleep as well as the serious risks sleep disrupting disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, movement and sleep behavior disorders expose us to. These problems range from the obvious such as increased risk of serious accidents, inattentiveness on the job or in school to more subtle, long term consequences such as hypertension and heart problems. There are many resources on the world wide web on sleep disorders where you can find out more.
If you have any friends, colleagues or family members who have a sleep complaint we hope you will refer them to one of our specialists for diagnosis and treatment. Remember inability to sleep at night, frequent awakenings, loud snoring or breathing noises during sleep as well as being excessively tired during the day can all be cardinal symptoms of a serious sleep disorder.
Have them call the Institute at 1-800-333-6533 for more information.
Dr. Thomas M. Kilkenny
Director of the Institute of Sleep Medicine
