Much more than a sleep lab, the Owensboro

Advanced Sleep Center is a full service

sleep center which is accredited by the

American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

 

The diagnosis and treatment of sleep

disorders is our only activity. Our

facility opened in 2007 and uses stateof-

the art equipment in 8 study rooms

for polysomnography (sleep testing).

 

The experienced staff is under the

supervision of a Registered

Polysomnography Technologist,

and is dedicated to making your visit

 with us as comfortable as possible.

 

Long-term follow-up in the

clinic is available for those who need it.

 

Your convenience influenced the design

of the Sleep Center. The clinic space,

the sleep study rooms, and medical

equipment services are located in

adjacent area of the building to facilitate optimal care.

 

The parking lot has easy access to

Triplett Street and our front door is

only a few steps away.

Adequate sleep of good quality is essential for one’s mental and physical well-being.

We prefer a physician referral, but self-referred patients are also seen. For new patients, a visit with Dr.Pope is suggested prior to a sleep study in order to optimize the evaluation.
