The Sleep Center

The Sleep Center – Information for Patients

This website is designed to help you understand disorders of sleep. It has grown from its origin in 2002 until the present. Originally a tool for patients cared for in our facility, it has changed to a useful website to anyone with a disorder of sleep.  Now that our clinical testing and treatments have closed, we are updating the site to meet our new goals and commitments.

Our Commitments

In January 2018, our Business Changed:

Our organization will provide up to date information for the consumer on matters relating to sleep through this website, our newsletters and other events.

We have been proud provide direct care and serve our patients over the past years. Our organization has grown out of the Phoenix metropolitan area’s first physician owned and operated accredited sleep center, The Sleep Center, PC has the standard for the care of sleep disorders during its years of operations.

This website will continue to be available and updated to provide current information for you about the field of sleep disorders.

We hope our site is helpful to you and that we have the opportunity to serve you.

Need additional information about a disorder of sleep? Not sure about your situation? Our Sleep Disorders page may help. If you know your specific problem, review the disorder by selecting one of the tabs above or use our links page to find other worthwhile educational sites. You may find our Sleep Disorders Quiz helpful in pointing you in the right direction if you are unsure.

In January 2018, The Sleep Center and the medical practice of Robert G. Hooper ceased providing medical and testing services. Active patients (seen in the past 3 years) were mailed a notification with instructions for obtaining their records. If you wish to have a copy of the records information, one can be downloaded here.  Further comments on the reasons for the change, written by Dr. Hooper, are also available.

Special Announcement!

We are proud to announce Dr. Hooper’s most recent publication on the relationship between sleep apnea and obesity. Visit the publication page on our website to view his latest contribution to the field of sleep medicine.

Welcome to the new home for The Sleep Center!

We hope you find the new and improved design helpful to gaining the information you need about The Sleep Center. We appreciate your patience while we continue improving the content of our site.
