Tips for Your Best Sleep Ever
Expert physicians at the sleep centers are board certified in pulmonary disease, sleep medicine, neurology, critical care medicine and/or pediatrics. That depth of experience enables each patient to receive a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis. Other Abington – Jefferson Health specialists, such as otolaryngologists and oral medicine doctors, may be included on the patient’s multidisciplinary team.
Our centers at Abington Hospital – Jefferson Health, Abington – Lansdale Hospital and four other locations in Montgomery and Bucks counties use the latest technology and treatments to help patients achieve healthful sleep. Services include testing in a sophisticated Sleep Laboratory, home monitoring and CPAP mask fittings for best comfort and results. Overnight or daytime sleep studies, when needed, are conducted in comfortable, private rooms. Appointments are scheduled promptly.
We have one of the few pediatric sleep labs in the Philadelphia region, where children’s sleep disorders receive specialized attention. For overnight testing, parents may stay with children.
