Our clinical staff is comprised of psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, pulmonary specialists, and pediatricians. In addition, we work closely with sleep apnea surgeons, dentists, and orthodontists, all of whom specialize in the treatment of sleep disorders.
In 2009, the Stanford Center for Sleep Medicine moved to a state-of-the-art facility in the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center in Redwood City. The facility has 14 clinical beds, and four additional beds dedicated to research. We perform approximately 10,000 clinic visits and 3,000 in-house sleep studies per year. The clinic also provides ambulatory home monitoring, an important trend in sleep medicine.
Additionally, we use the latest technology to help properly diagnose and treat each patient. Every new patient completes our innovative web-based questionnaire, the Alliance Sleep Questionnaire (ASQ), from home before their appointment. This allows the clinician to review a comprehensive overview of an individual’s sleep complaints before the appointment begins to ensure the consultation is as effective as possible. Soon we will have returning patients fill out an abbreviated version of the ASQ which will allow us to monitor how a patient’s symptoms change over time.
