About Sleep Well Clinic
The Sleep Well Clinic provides home-based sleep testing, clinical consultations, and a full range of treatment options for snoring, sleep apnoea, insomnia, and other sleep disorders.
The Doctors at the Sleep Well Clinic have long-standing special interest in sleep medicine, and have received special training in sleep medicine.
The consultation will help figure out what’s going on so we can get the right treatment for you.
The Sleep Well Clinic staff perform a wide range of home sleep tests for sleep apnoea, sleep/wake cycles, restless legs, and other sleep disorders.
Not all patients need a test, but when indicated, the test will help select the best treatment.
A wide range of treatments for a variety of sleep disorders are available at the Sleep Well Clinic.
Clinical treatment includes Cognitive Behaviour therapy for insomnia, and CPAP therapy for sleep apnoea, including our own CPAP therapists. CPAP information is available from our therapy website at http://www.cpap.co.nz
