Today, more than 50 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder.
It is estimated that 20% of US adults suffer from sleep apnea. Chronic insomnia affects 10% of the US adult population and up to 25% of children and teenagers – which often results in poor professional and academic performance in addition to poor health. Sleep disordered breathing is increasing in the pediatric population commensurate with the obesity epidemic.
To treat this growing patient population with a small number of local specialists, Sleep Telemedicine with MyCatholicDoctor is uniquely positioned to help adult and pediatric patients sleep better, improve their overall health, and live an abundant Catholic life, just as Jesus Christ intended for us.
Listed below are sleep disorders we can help manage:
- Sleep Apnea
- Restless leg syndrome
- Shift work disorder
- Advanced phase sleep disorder
- Delayed phase sleep disorder

Our Sleep Telemedicine program also provides pediatric sleep services, including infant sleep management.
As part of our sleep program, we can order a home sleep study for you and interpret the results via video conference at a time that is convenient for you, allowing you to complete this in the comfort of your own home and receive valuable feedback regarding your sleep concerns.
