Over 6 years as a patient of Dr. Mettu, I’m benefiting from his medical skill both in analyzing my sleep problems and determining a correct course of action. He expertly guided my journey through overnight sleep studies (which revealed significant sleep problems), selection of CPAP equipment, and monitoring the sleep patterns recorded by my machine. Whenever my health situation changes, e.g. weight fluctuations, he skillfully guides correct adjustments to equipment (different masks, pressure settings). His friendly manner and attentiveness to my concerns reflect a genuine interest in my wellbeing as a person, beyond just getting a good night’s sleep. I’m blessed to have his professional skill and caring friendship.

Amazing doctor! My sleep has never been better. I am full of energy and able to focus. I wish I would have had a sleep study done 10 years ago.

I have been seeing dr mettu for about 8 years for my sleep apnea. It has been a great relationship. He is a kind, caring professional doctor. He is always willing to listen to what's going on with my sleep issues and wanting to resolve my problems so I am at my best. I feel he spends the appropriate time with me for my care. My husband also goes to Dr mettu for sleep apnea. I would HIGHLY recommend him if you have sleep apnea or any sleep issues.

I have been treated by Dr. Mettu for five years for sleep apnea. He has helped me tremendously! I was falling asleep during the day, including while attempting to work or drive. I couldn't watch tv without falling asleep. Dr. Mettu's treatment and prescribed sleep apnea machine has produced good sleep and restored me to being able to fully function.

I would highly recommend Dr. Mettu. After my sleep study, Dr. Mettu called me right away to let me know that I had severe obstructive sleep apnea. He explained what it was and the treatment for it. I was not interested in treatment, but he was patient and persistent with me, and now I can't sleep without my CPAP machine. And at the time of my sleep study, Dr. Mettu was going on vacation, but he made sure to speak with me and write a prescription before he went on vacation.
