Sleep disorders involve the diagnosis and treatment of symptoms such as excessive daytime sleepiness, or difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep. Dr. Shatkin, specializes and treats disorders such as Insomnia, Sleep Apnea (including CPAP tolerance), Snoring, Narcolepsy, Periodic Limb Movement disorder, Restless leg syndrome, and many others. Quality sleep is necessary for optimal health and can affect hormone levels, weight and mood. Untreated sleep disorders can increase the risk of medical problems such as heart disease and stroke. Polysomnography (sleep studies) are most often performed in the home but when necessary can be performed in an accredited overnight sleep laboratory. Under the direction of Dr. Jason Shatkin, a board certified sleep disorders specialist, a full evaluation and treatment paradigm is used in evaluating what is an appropriate therapy for an individual patient.
