Our History

The Sleep Center is committed to improving sleep health in Arizona. Our comprehensive services for individuals are designed to diagnose and treat all sleep disorders. Problems going to sleep, staying asleep, sleeping too much, sleeping at the wrong time, sleeping during the day, and moving or acting strangely during sleep are many of the issues we address.

The Sleep Center is also a resource for healthcare professionals to assist them in serving their patients. Information about presenting symptoms, diagnosis and management of sleep problems, and up-to-date sleep research is available. Our out-reach program is available to healthcare providers as well as business, charity and community service organizations.

This web site is designed to inform you about sleep disorders and how they are evaluated. The common and dangerous problem of Obstructive Sleep Apnea is reviewed in depth. Information and resources for learning about all sleep disorders can also be found on our site.

We are proud to be the Phoenix metropolitan area’s first and finest physician owned sleep center accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.  The Sleep Center P.C. has also achieved accreditation by the Academy as a center for Home Sleep Apnea Testing.

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

Our services represent a significant value. We provide comprehensive care of sleep problems and disorders of sleep. We diagnose, treat, and care for patients with sleep issues. By providing the entire spectrum of care, our practice is unusual and unique.

The past few years have seen significant decreases in coverage of medical care by some insurance companies. They promise quality care and then limit the patient’s access to that care. They limit that care with the requirements for pre-approval for visits, tests and treatments. We work with many major companies but that list has been dwindling. In the current environment, insurance companies are changing contracts faster than physicians can assess the changes. As a result, please call for our current contract information for your policy. Our staff will be happy to assist you.
