Sleep Medicine doctor in baton rougeAt The Baton Rouge Clinic, our physicians who are board certified in pulmonary medicine assist all patients dealing with sleep problems.

Our objective is to relieve the physiological conditions that prevent adults from getting the nighttime rest they need. Our clinical team frequently works with patients who suffer with issues related to snoring, daytime sleepiness and fatigue, insomnia, abnormal sleep-wake rhythm, sleep-walking, frequent nightmares and nocturnal confusion, narcolepsy, and other disorders of daytime sleepiness.

Once the condition has been diagnosed, most sleep-wake disorders can be treated effectively. An accurate diagnosis relies on a thorough assessment of both the patient’s physical and emotional health. Fortunately, many patients can improve the quality of their lives with only a modification of their sleep schedules. For others, the best solution may involve breathing-assistance devices (CPAP), medication and /or psychotherapy. Occasionally, surgery may be necessary to relieve severe breathing problems that disturb sleep.

Some common sleep disorders that are treated at The Baton Rouge Clinic include:
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
  • Narcolepsy
  • Sleep Dystonia
  • Snoring
