Patient Comments (1)
in Novato, CA |
Dr. Lim appears to prefer CPAP to any other treatment for OSA even though studies show better compliance with a Mandibular Advancement Splint. Her Tech woke me up an hour before the study said she would. Access to the bathroom required disconnection and reconnection (it was not wireless). She dismissed my complaints that the nasal canula had obstructed by breathing during the lab study enough to affect the results. She would not use the PVDF alternative either.
