Center for Sleep Medicine
Because good sleep is so important to good health, the staff at South Nassau’s Center for Sleep Medicine has worked to make our center the leading sleep diagnostic center on South Shore. Our experts evaluate and treat adults and children who have health conditions that cause difficulty sleeping — difficulty that not only affects quality of life, but that can sometimes be life-threatening.
Led by physicians with advanced training in the subspecialty of sleep medicine, our patient-centered team is dedicated to finding the underlying causes of sleep disorders and identifying the best treatment. We are accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the only professional society dedicated exclusively to the medical subspecialty of sleep medicine.
Do You Have a Sleep Disorder?
Common symptoms of sleep disorders include:
- Not feeling rested during the day
- Having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep
- Having trouble waking up.
Common causes of sleep disorders include:
- Sleep apnea, in which people stop breathing briefly during sleep; this can be related to heart disease, diabetes, stroke and other health conditions, and can also make these conditions worse
- Sleep deprivation
- Insomnia, or having problems falling or staying asleep
- Periodic limb movement disorder
- Restless leg syndrome

Diagnosing the Cause
Key to diagnosis for many people is our sleep lab, a cozy, comfortable, private bedroom with a hotel-style experience, where patients spend the night. While patients sleep, staff monitor breathing, blood pressure and other information that will help our physicians diagnose the cause of any disorder and how severe it is.
The beautiful center was recently renovated with our patients’ comfort and safety in mind.
After your sleep study is completed, we will send a report to your primary care physician along with a personalized treatment plan to improve your sleep. We will also work with your physician to monitor your sleep condition. And for you and your sleep partners, we offer education and support services.
