Fadi A Elatat,
I think the staff that perform the various tests are amazing. They are very personable and made me feel comfortable. When I finally got the chance to meet Dr. Fadi, he was very friendly and made me feel confident that my symptoms were manageable. The only downside to the visit was the long wait from beginning to end. Overall, good experience.
I was seeking a second opinion on the results of my at-home sleep apnea test that I Had done and reviewed by another sleep Doc. I had to wait over 2 hrs after my appt time to see this Doc. We had about a 20 min discussion, then he told me I had to fill out 2 quick surveys about sleep before he'd write me an Rx for Provigil (modafinil) and be able to persuade my insurance company to cover an in-hospital sleep study. (I have Horizon BCBS EPO Plus and it took over a dozen calls and over a month for them to approve the simple rental of a sleep study machine for one night.) I then gave the surveys to the (New) receptionist to give to the Doc, then waited again for over an hour to review the results of my surveys and discuss getting treatment for my obstructive sleep apnea. Only options BTW are a mouth guard, CPAP mask, or surgery (dangerous). After 4 hours in total, I did walk out with a script for Provigil (typically super difficult to get), and a referral to get a mouth guard, and with confidence that after carefully choosing my answers to the 2 sleep surveys, that I'd be able to get the in-hospital sleep study covered by my insurance.
