The Sleep Center at MedStar Harbor Hospital.
Although many people experience occasional trouble sleeping, if the problem is severe or persistent, it may require medical attention. Sleep problems contribute to a variety of serious chronic health issues such as diabetes, hypertension, and congestive heart failure.
If your sleep has been disturbed for more than a month and it begins to interfere with your ability to drive, hold a job, stay in school, or perform normal daily activities, a physician and board-certified sleep specialist should evaluate you. The Sleep Center at MedStar Harbor Hospital can help you get back on the road to a good night's sleep. Our center provides comprehensive assessment for adults with sleep disorders.
Patients are referred to the Sleep Center, an accredited member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, by their primary care provider or a specialist. Our sleep lab provides privacy and comfort in a hotel-like setting. Patients may bring sleeping attire and their own pillows, if desired.
