Established in 2008, Texas Sleep Medicine is a comprehensive sleep disorder center dedicated to providing high quality care to those affected by sleep disorders in the Austin, Texas area. Over 17 million Americans are affected by sleep disorders and the vast majority remain undiagnosed. The most common sleep disorders include snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome, insomnia and narcolepsy. Sleep disorders increase the risk of excessive sleepiness and fatigue during the day. There is also an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and high blood pressure.
Our medical director, Ashwin Gowda, MD, is board certified in sleep medicine. The center offers initial consultations to discuss your sleep concerns and is equipped to perform sleep studies in the facility and at home. Studies are necessary to help in the diagnosis of certain sleep disorders. Visit our website or contact our office to learn more about our services and to schedule your initial consultation.
