Dr. Saito's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Saito "Dr. Saito received his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pa., and completed his residency at Orlando Regional Health System, Orlando, Fla. His pediatric pulmonology fellowship was completed at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, N.C. His sleep training was completed at Cook Children's Medical Center, Fort Worth, TX.Dr. Saito was an assistant professor at Texas A&M School of Medicine and the director of Pediatric Pulmonary and Allergy at Scott & White Hospital in Texas. He specializes in the care of children and adults with respiratory disorders such as chronic lung diseases of prematurity along with asthma, COPD, emphysema, bronchiectasis, and pulmonary fibrosis. From a sleep standpoint, he specializes in obstructive sleep apnea along with all disorders of sleep including restless leg syndrome and insomnia. Dr. Saito is especially keen on finding and fixing what he calls, "TOXIC SLEEP." This is a scenario where sleep disruption due to disordered breathing plus hypoxia (lack of oxygen) leads to global health failure. He likens this to drinking dirty water contaminated by lead (known toxin). Studies show a reduction in the length of life by as much as 10 years when sleep apnea with hypoxia was not treated. In summary, when sleep problems are correctly identified and addressed, children and adults not only get more sleep, they get better quality sleep and live longer healthier lives. Thus, optimization of our restoration drive through better sleep health not only is essential to getting more life in our days, but also helps us get more days in our life."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Saito "Dr. Saito feels that living well comes from breathing well and sleeping well. Breathing problems and illnesses rarely go to sleep when you, your child, or your parents does. Disruptions of restorative sleep along with hypoxia during sleep often results in impairment in daytime functioning of both children and adults and increase risk for heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. Dr. Saito looks forward to providing you and your family members personalized specialty care."

Went with my husband to see Dr. Saito. After learning more about sleep health, I realized that he could help me with my insomnia too. Dr. Saito helped me get off of sleeping pills the right way. Thanks from us both!

Was really impressed with Dr. and his staff at Fountain Valley office. It was a little hard to find the office (3rd floor above Da Vita Dialysis) so we were a few minutes late. It wasn't a problem. Staff was very nice.
