Patient Care Philosophy

"I try to listen carefully to patients. When a good treatment outcome is not achieved, I spend time to understand why. I work with patients to optimize their sleep quality to a level they desire and are motivated to achieve."

Personal Interests

Spending time with my wife and son, yoga and travel.

Clinical Interests

I enjoy caring for the full spectrum of sleep disorders, including:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Central sleep apnea
  • Narcolepsy
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • Excessive sleepiness
  • Circadian rhythm disorders
  • Parasomnias
  • Insomnia
I have a particular interest in more complex or difficult-to-treat types of sleep apnea.

Research Interests

Epidemiology and outcomes in sleep apnea.

Health-care utilization and sleep apnea.

Ambulatory diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea.
