During an initial sleep consultation, Frank Arnal, MD, our sleep specialist, will collect general information about you such as height, weight and other general physical characteristics that will help determine your general health. Dr. Arnal will also assess your sleep habits by evaluating symptoms such as difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, daytime sleepiness, fatigue, breathing problems during sleep, restless legs and other behaviors that could make sleep difficult.
Based on the information collected, our UPMC Cole team will create a diagnostic and treatment plan to meet your individual needs. During the initial consultation, it may become clear that more information will be needed before a treatment plan can be created. In this case, a sleep study or polysomnogram may be required.
