Prepare for your visit

What I need for my sleep surgery appointment:

  • Prior to your visit you will need a copy of a recent diagnostic sleep study, preferably one done within the last 3 years. The full report should be sent to our office
  • A referral from your primary care or sleep medicine provider.
  • Notes from your provider forwarded to the office.

For your appointment:

  • Completion of the sleep surgery intake form prior to your visit.
  • Bring your insurance card, a list of your medications, and your physicians’ contact information.

At your visit with your provider:

  • You will discuss your sleep symptoms and goals of treatment.
  • You will have a complete head and neck exam, including a flexible fiberoptic laryngoscopy to examine your nasal cavity and upper throat.
  • A conversation about options for therapy and next steps in sleep apnea treatment.
