I have seen 3 such specialists over the years,& I was least happy with him. He reversed the finding of sleep apnea of my other 2 doctors, but family members still observe me with breathing stops and snoring. He said I did not sleep long enough to get proper results. I normally sleep 1-2AM to 10-11AM, but the test was inflexible--sleep tested from 10 PM to 5AM only,so of course he didn't get correct results! He also did not treat my asthma and allergies very well. I am changing doctors.
