Sleep Apnea Assessment Questionnaire
The following questions are excellent screening questions to determine if you are at risk of having sleep apnea. Please answer the questions and submit the form, and either Wendy or Dr. Hirschinger, who sees patients from Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and any area outside of Southern California for obstructive sleep apnea, will contact you to let you know if you are at risk for sleep apnea. These are simple screening tools but the only way to diagnosis sleep apnea is for you to have an overnight sleep study at a certified sleep lab, and then have the results read by a sleep physician.
There are many doctors who use dental appliances to treat obstructive sleep apnea but many took a weekend course or two and then started treating patients. Dr. Hirschinger attended a full time, two year residency at UCLA in orofacial pain and dental sleep medicine. Please learn more about Dr. Hirschinger.
