    We are a dynamic, compassionate team of medical experts which focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of breathing and sleep disorders, such as asthma, chronic cough, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), emphysema, asbestosis, tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, lung cancer, sleep apnea, and insomnia.

    Our Somerset Sleep Center includes a state-of-the-art sleep lab for testing patients  suspected of having sleep disorders, in addition to full consultative medical services. Our physicians also offer the following diagnostic tests: pulmonary function tests, simple pulmonary stress testing, nocturnal oximetry, rhinomanometry, fiberoptic laryngoscopy, echocardiography, and 24-hour Holter (cardiac) monitoring.

    Many people complain of symptoms which may suggest an underlying sleep disorder. Sleep apnea is a condition which is very common but under--diagnosed. Consider these questions:


  • Do you snore?

  • Do you stop breathing at night?

  • Do you awaken often at night?

  • Are you a restless sleeper?

  • Do you suffer from daytime sleepiness?

  • Do you wake up feeling non-refreshed and drowsy?

  • Do you feel drowsy or fall asleep while driving?

  • If you have these symptoms, then you may have a sleep disorder. During normal sleep, our airway is kept open by neck muscles. When these muscles relax, the airway can become narrower and even completely blocked, resulting in abnormal breathing and oxygen deprivation. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when this situation becomes repetitive throughout the night. An overnight sleep study may be helpful in diagnosing this condition.
