My wife thinks I love Dr Zhou more then her..well its true!! I was wrongly diagnosed for 20 years with only sleep apnea. I used a mask this entire time but kept waking up all night. I also had "insomnia" but no one bothered to treat it. Dr Zhou was very detailed and made sure I knew what we were doing and why I had to make big changes. He also replies to my emails quickly. Even the day after XMas!

I've been seeing another sleep doctor in Maine and wasn't getting the answers I wanted clearly. I called in and Dr. Zhou communicated clearly and answered my questions about insomnia. He made it simple and kept it on point. Let me just say I am glad I switched. I can now move on with life far more educated on what got me here in the first place.

Best sleep hands down. I've been a patient of Dr. Zhou for 2 months. I've had success with cbt for insomnia that he specializes in. I always learn a skill or take away something new from each session. He works with my psychiatrist so that we are on the same page. He replies to my questions promptly and is always on time for our appointments. I highly recommend to anyone openminded to changing.

I apologize in advance for any grammar errors But I’m just so excited to let you guys know about doctor Zhou.Stop taking all these medication for sleep, including Z-Quil, trazodone,Ambien or anything else your doctor has prescribed for you.You’re not only wasting your time but you’re wasting money.Before I met Dr. Zhou I was going to bed at 12:45 AM ,up until 4 AM and waking up at 7 AM.Yes.Crazy but that was my “sleep” schedule.After just five sessions with Dr. Zhou my sleep has completely turned around. I now go to bed and within 10 minutes I’m knocked out and wake up soooo refreshed.Dr. Zhou will teach you how to improve your sleep for long term rather than short term.He’s genuine and you can tell that he’s really passionate about people getting the quality of sleep that they need without taking all these medications.He listens very well. I am so thankful for Dr. Zhou.If you follow his lead,I promise you, you will be a new person.I am no longer afraid of going to bed. Thank you Dr.Z!

Do you want someone who tells you what you want to hear so you keep coming back to see them? And keeps cashing your checks? I had a sleep doctor who did that and after 3 years and no results, I was FED UP. Dr. Zhou is direct and tells you from the start that his goal is NOT to keep seeing patients for months and months. I was referred by by pulmonologist at Brigham and Womens and Dr. Zhou is A+. 2 months and my insomnia was GONE.

Dr. Zhou is an excellent, caring doctor with a lovely bedside manner. I have had terrible insomnia for at least 10 years. By implementing the behavioral techniques that he explained in a crystal clear way, I have experienced great improvements in my sleep. Highly recommended.

Dr. Zhou is by far the best therapist I've ever seen. I was amidst a crisis with my insomnia and I'm not sure what I would have done without him. His knowledge in the area of insomnia is vast and specialized and for those suffering with insomnia, I believe that is very important. He is smart, challenges me, listens to me, and is also sympathetic. I've seen many useless therapists but I never felt I wasted a minute with him. I would highly recommend Dr. Zhou!!

I was referred to Dr. Zhou by my sleep physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital. I was told he is the best and I have to say that I agree 100%. He explained to me why I was suffering from insomnia and helped me understand each step along the way. I had actually seen another "sleep psychologist" before but she didn't know what she was talking about at all. I have already told several of my friends about Dr. Zhou.

I have never met a more compassionate doctor than Doctor Zhou. My son does not talk to anyone and within the first session, felt more comfortable with Doctor Zhou than he did with any other psychologist we have taken him to. When we had some family problems, he went above and beyond to make sure that my family was taken care of. We live about 30 miles away and the drive - even in Boston traffic - is worth it to see Doctor Zhou.

Dr. Zhou has been excellent to work with and has a very personable and caring personality. He talks to my 16 year old daughter and allows her to be a full participant in the decision making regarding her therapies. I believe he will be the doctor that helps my daughter conquer her severe case of Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome.
