The Yale Centers for Sleep Medicine in North Haven and Madison, CT offer a coordinated approach to the evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and management of a variety of sleep disorders and related conditions, including excessive sleepiness, insomnia, movement disorders, narcolepsy, parasomnias, restless leg syndrome, circadian rhythm disorders (including delayed sleep phase syndrome and shift-related work disorders), and sleep apnea. The program is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
The team is multidisciplinary and includes physicians from the Yale School of Medicine who are internationally recognized for their expertise in the sleep medicine field. These clinicians are board-certified in sleep medicine in addition to internal medicine, pulmonary disease, neurology and pediatrics. The team also includes physician assistants, nurses, polysomnographic technicians, and a clinical psychologist.
As an interdisciplinary program, clinicians work closely with a network of specialty providers who are board-certified in bariatric surgery, cardiology, dentistry, neurology, and otolaryngology.
