Mission Hospital Sleep Center
How are you sleeping? To wake up refreshed and alert after a good night's sleep is one of life's greatest pleasures. However, an astonishing 46 million people are affected by sleep disorders. What's more, their condition often remains undiagnosed. This can result in more than just feeling groggy - poor work performance, driving accidents, relationship problems, and mood problems like anger and depression can result from lack of sleep.
A good night's sleep starts here.
The good news is that most sleep disorders can be diagnosed and treated, and serious complications may be prevented. If you or a loved one are not sleeping well, your doctor may recommend a sleep study, or polysomnography, at Mission's Sleep Center. A referral is not neccessary but may be required for some services; as always share any symptoms or concerns with your primary care provider.
For more information on the Mission Sleep Center call 828-213-4670 or fill out our Online Pre-Screening Form and a Sleep Center Representative will contact you about your concerns.
