I just couldn't face up to the fact that I snored. Denial was an understatement. The test wasn't the most comfortable thing for this quasi - macho man. Dr Puryear told me like it was. I got the mask & the Cpap machine. Used it ever since, It's been eleven months of at least seven hours (or more) of continuous sleep. I feel better than I've felt in years! It's Dr Puryear & his fantastic caring staff that caused this to happen for me... :) From a 76 year old patient.
