Medicine is becoming increasingly specialized, and with good reason. With so much research being conducted and information compiled, no one doctor can expertly care for every type of patient or condition. So, while your primary care physician may be a good place to start expressing concerns about poor sleep, you will likely need a specialized sleep doctor.
In order for a doctor to be a sleep specialist, he or she must be certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Certification requires additional hours of coursework and clinical practice in the field in which the doctor is seeking specialization.
Dr. Senthil Ramasamy at Neurology & Sleep Medicine holds dual certifications in the specialties of sleep medicine and neurology. To get his certifications, he has completed approximately five to six years of additional training beyond the standard medical training to acquire an M.D.
A specialized sleep doctor has the expertise to diagnose and treat a range of sleep problems and disorders, including:
Sleep clinics must have a board-certified sleep specialist overseeing patient care, but few sleep doctors actually see their patients. At Neurology & Sleep Medicine, that is not the case. Dr. Ramasamy personally conducts the initial consultation to learn about your sleep problem and outline the process for diagnosis and treatment. If a sleep study is ordered, he evaluates the results and meets with every patient for follow-up consultations.
