I was wondering if anyone in the NYC metro area know of any really good insomnia specialists that you have had success with? When my last sleep doctor moved to DC, I lost a really good doctor. His…Continue

I was getting a little concerned, just wanted to make sure you were ok. It's funny (not really) that you mentioned calling your doctor and his response to you....
I went to my Sleep Doc on Friday, I told him how much Sleep Guide has helped me. I mentioned to him that there is so much to learn about OSA and I couldn't imagine having to call him every time I had a question. He laughed. I laughed back at him and said, "you think it's funny but it's not, how are we supposed to become educated and informed patients when this OSA condition doesn't come with a manual?" "There is no way you could return every patients phone call, there are not enough hours in the day. I told him to check this out and tell me what he thinks at my next appointment. We'll see if he does or not. I think he understood that in no way was I trying to be rude, just wanted to express my opinion.
I think it would be best for you to find another Doc. Because sleep medicine is not an exact science, each doctor has his/her own ideas and therapy plans. I hope you are able to find one with good credentials.
Wishing you a better night's sleep,
Haven't heard from you in a few days, are you ok?
