Dr. Wendy became our family sleep guru in 2003. She instantly & accurately diagnosed our young daughter's life-long sleeping issues, becoming her advocate & advisor. My spouse was identified with a sleep disorder & a few years after, it was my turn. Dr. Wendy treats my spouse & I individually AND as a boxed set. Our personal sleep issues interfere with each other's sleep quality - with her goal for BOTH of us to sleep well. The office staff is incredibly kind & professional.
