When to Seek Medical Care
If symptoms and signs suggestive of sleep apnea are present, then proper medical evaluation is warranted. A primary care physician may be the best person for initial assessment and screening for sleep apnea. Referral to a sleep specialist, a specialized neurologist, or a specialized lung doctor (pulmonologist) may also be necessary for further evaluation and treatment of sleep apnea.
