Sleep disorder consultations
     
           
   

Sometimes, a physician will refer you directly to Doctors Thornton and Baker for a sleep study. Other times, you will have a consultation first, to see if a sleep study is needed.

What to expect during the consultation

Prior to the consultation, you'll be sent an information packet which includes a questionnaire. It asks about your sleep history and general health history. Often, there will be  questions to be answered by your sleep partner about your sleep patterns as well. This is because patients often don't realize some of their sleep habits -- like how loud their snoring is. Bring the completed questionnaire with you to the consultation appointment.

At the consultation, a brief physical will be done. A sleep specialist will discuss your sleep health and treatment options. If necessary, a sleep study may be recommended, so the doctors can obtain more information about your particular sleep condition.

What to bring

If you have a consultation scheduled, see our web page "What to bring to your consultation" for more details.
