My initial sleep consult with this this dr. had a wait of 2 mnths. He gave me new sleep calendars, even though I brought a month's worth in. He set me up for a sleep study saying it was very unlikely I had sleep apnea based on my symptoms. He also told me to quit my sleep meds cold turkey and if that didn't work to double them. The meds are supposed to be tapered off, never stopped cold turkey, and he didn't give me a prescription to support the increase. He then told me to come back in 1 month. While checking out, the front desk would not let me make my follow up appt, saying his schedule wasn't available since he's on emergency calls. The sleep study appt was scheduled for a month out due to equipment availability. I called the week of the study, again trying to schedule my follow up. This time I was told I had to wait until they had the results of the study. This took another 3 wks. Overall it took 2 months before they would let me schedule my next apt. I did not go back.
