“We offer a comprehensive range of services and tests which will help us develop treatment plans for patients suffering from sleep disorders,” said Nelson Greene, MD, board-certified specialist in pulmonary diseases and critical care medicine. “There are a number of sleep disorders, with some of the most common being insomnia, sleep apnea, chronic fatigue, restless legs syndrome, sleepwalking, night terrors, narcolepsy, and snoring.”  

Over 70 million Americans suffer from sleep problems such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC also states that those who have sleep disorders also increase their chances of having chronic diseases like hypertension, diabetes, depression, obesity, and even cancer.

The new Sleep Center can be found at the LewisGale Medical Center Campus in Medical Building C on the first floor. For more information visit the LewisGale Physicians’ website or call 540-776-2075.
