First and most important, let me say that you are certainly one of the most responsive and caring physicians I have worked with, and between my wife’s health problems, and my own, I have worked with over 100 doctors. Your dedication to solving the problem of sleep apnea is obvious.
I have learned more today about my sleep apnea than in all of my previous appointments with doctors combined. Nobody before has ever taken the time to explain sleep apnea, how it starts, and how we can treat it.
Thank you. I really want to thank you. You saved my life with the surgery.
My wife slept without earplugs for the first time in 30 years because I hardly snored. She was probably louder than I was.
I want to thank you again for everything you’ve done for me. My quality of life is much better than it was.

What are Snoring &
Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Snoring is sound produced during sleep, typically from vibration of structures inside the throat. Snoring can have important effects by itself. However, it can be a sign of a more-serious problem called obstructive sleep apnea that can lead to sleepiness and fatigue during the day and create serious health problems.
