Sleep Services

We know how important a good night’s sleep is in helping your body restore and function at its best. We also know that figuring out WHY you're not getting proper sleep is a difficult task. There are many reasons that may be keeping you from healthy rest, and your healthcare provider may recommend a sleep study to get to the root of the problem. 

Our nationally-accredited program offers diagnostic testing for a variety of sleep disorders. After the study is complete, data is tabulated by a technologist and presented to a board-certified sleep physician for interpretation. The results are then sent back to your physician to discuss with you and share treatment options if they are necessary.

What is a sleep study?

A sleep study is a noninvasive, pain-free procedure that usually requires spending a night in one of Story Medical's sleep rooms. During the night various sleep patterns are monitored by a sleep technician. Our sleep rooms are spacious and ensure your comfort and privacy. Each room is outfitted to be as close to home as possible with a comforter for your bed, extra pillows, a sound machine/alarm clock and more. In addition, every room has a private bathroom and shower for your convenience.
