Patient Comments (1)
in San Diego, CA |
AmeriSleep Diagnostics titrated me on a straight BiPap, instead of the ASV that was required. Mr. Loredo probably has a financial or personal conflict of interest with Amerisleep, because he failed disclose the error and was extremely and consistently evasive as to why I was not on the required ASV, despite complaints about persistent symptoms, as well as unreliable AHI metrics, frequently above 5. My current sleep doctor is utterly shocked at the mistreatment I rec'd under Mr. Loredo.
