Patient Comments (1)
Baton Rouge, LA |
Went in, hoping to get some help with snoring and possible sleep apnea. After I mention that I vividly dream, he stopped reading the questionnaire I had filled out on my sleeping habits, tore it up, and dropped it in the garbage can. Told me I don't have sleep apnea because "sufferers don't sleep deep enough to dream" and just to lose weight (yes, I'm about 20 lbs. overweight). Well, a friend and my brother both have sleep apnea and they say they dream vividly. Going to find a second opinion.
