Sleep Disorders Center
Are you having trouble finding a good night's sleep? You may be one of the 70 million Americans who suffer from a sleep disorder like sleep apnea, narcolepsy, or insomnia. Untreated sleep disorders can lead to more serious illness such as stroke, congestive heart failure, and hypertension.

Untreated sleep disorders impair concentration, and cause irritability and memory loss. The gold standard for diagnosing a sleep disorder is an overnight sleep study. Accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the Sleep Disorders Center at Putnam Hospital Center offers state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment options including CPAP therapy. Patients spend the night in a full-sized bed in a well-appointed room with television and private bathroom. Our superior team of specialists will put your mind at ease and help you find that good night's sleep.
