Sleep Medicine

If you're struggling with sleep disorders like insomnia, restless leg syndrome, and sleep apnea, we can help. Treating sleep disorders is no different than treating any other medical problem. After a thorough consultation, patients who have clear indications for diagnostic sleep studies will be referred for an overnight study, followed by a personalized treatment plan.

Recommendations may include medications prescribed by your physician, or non-drug approaches by a sleep psychologist. We strive to help you understand the nature and treatment of your sleep disorder, and partner closely with your primary care physician to provide a comprehensive ongoing treatment plan. Check out Dr. Mehta's blog post about identifying and treating sleep disorders.

Pullman Regional Hospital's Sleep Center Lab is part of an elite group of facilities that are nationally accredited with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.  Highly trained board-certified sleep specialists conduct sleep studies upon physician referral. To schedule your sleep study, please call (509) 336-7552
