I knew something was wrong with me but I had no idea it was sleep apnea. I can honestly say after the sleep study prescribed by Dr. Mettu showed I was experiencing severe apnea I was a bit apprehensive. I should not have been. Dr. Mettu took his time with me and explained everything carefully and made sure I understood what was really happening to me. He gained my trust through that conversation and I'm so glad I am his patient. His care and monitoring of my condition has changed my life. The first week of using the CPAP machine I noticed I didn't need that 2 o'clock caffeine boost to make it through the rest of the day. I awoke rested and ready to tackle the day. I started sleeping through the night. Thank you Dr. Mettu! We are fortunate to have someone of your caliber here in Jefferson City.

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.

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.
