Dr. Dobuler was pleasant and professional during my visit. He answered all of my questions and gave me suggestions that could rid me of sleep apnea. I took one star off only because during my visit, he said that I had severe sleep apnea but my test results and my neurologist (who suggested the sleep test) told me that I have moderate. I'm not sure if he was reading my chart or someone else's. There is also the possibility that someone in the Records Dept. mixed up my sleep study info. It could also be based on the CPAP machine use since it sends reports to my email and to my doctor daily. Being new to sleep apnea it scared me a little bit but it really didn't matter in the grand scheme of things because I have sleep apnea regardless and still need to use a machine and find ways to get rid of it.

Very unlikely. Dr. did not want to listen to any comments or questions I had. I was concerned about the diagnosis and treatment, but the doctor did not seem to care and was actually rude.. Made all my appointments on time, paid bills on time, would think I would have been treated with a little respect. Was rushed through the visit which lasted about 10 minutes. While the visit was cut short, I'm sure the bill won't be. Very disappointing..
