Inadequate sleep is an epidemic in our country, putting the health and safety of both adolescents and adults at risk. The Clinic, with locations in Palo Alto, San Jose, the Pacific Heights neighborhood and Financial District of San Francisco, California, offers effective, non-drug treatment of sleep disorders, including: insomnia, obstructive sleep apnea, nightmares, circadian rhythm disorder, shift-work sleep disorders, jet lag disorders and more. The Clinic will also soon service patients out of its new Berkeley and Marin locations.
With one of only four Board Certified Behavioral Sleep Medicine doctors in the Bay Area on our staff, The Clinic provides efficient and effective relief for numerous sleep disorders. These include:
Sleep medications can be beneficial when used short-term, such as during periods of acute stress. But medication is not a long-term solution. Sleep medications may increase risk for dependence and tolerance, and can have long-term mental and physical consequences. Fortunately, through the burgeoning field of behavioral sleep medicine, effective non-pharmacological treatment options have been developed and validated. At The Clinic, we have successfully used these to help patients, including many who’ve relied on medications for years, enjoy a good night’s sleep without medication.
Treatment for all sleep disorders start with a comprehensive evaluation. Following this assessment, most disorders are treated in 4 to 6 appointment that are 50-minutes in duration conducted at one of our offices or via video.
