Qualified Sleep Disorder Specialists
To ensure the safety and quality of our sleep studies, all sleep disorder specialists at the DeKalb Medical Sleep Disorders Center in Atlanta meet strict guidelines as Registered Sleep Technologists or Certified Sleep Technologists, or they have completed an education in the sleep field that makes them eligible to take the certification exam. DeKalb Medical’s Sleep Disorder Center does not employ students or hire employees for on-the-job training.
A qualified group of sleep disorder physicians and surgeons read and interpret the results of our sleep studies to determine the cause of your sleep problems and help identify an effective solution. The sleep disorder physicians and surgeons on our staff are all board certified in specialties that give them the training and experience to interpret sleep studies and develop appropriate treatment plans.
All sleep disorder specialists on our staff are also fully trained in Basic Cardiac Life Support and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation to provide an extra measure of safety during your study.
