Sleep Disorders

FWNC offers a coordinated team of board-certified experts in identifying and treating both common and rare sleep disorders. Comprehensive in scope, FWNC treats every aspect of a patient’s illness—social, physical, and psychological—quickly and effectively.

When individuals have difficulty sleeping, every aspect of their life is affected: work, home, physical, and emotional. Our goal is to identify the problem, treat it, and help our patients resume a satisfying quality of life.

FWNC treats all adult and pediatric sleep disorders including sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy parasomnia, circadian rhythm, and sleep problems resulting from other medical/psychiatric disorders. A complete array of diagnostic and treatment options includes:

  • Advanced sleep studies
  • Behavior modification
  • Drug therapy
  • Education
  • C-pap
  • Neuropsychology
  • Participation in pharmaceutical research trials

Our team of neurological specialists look at the entire spectrum of an individual’s health and lifestyle to create a treatment plan to reduce the occurrence or severity of sleep disorders.
