There are many symptoms of sleep apnea. Often, these symptoms are more noticeable to family members and bed partners than they are to the person with sleep apnea. If you notice any symptoms of sleep apnea, please contact our office today at 866-54-SLEEP and schedule your appointment with Dr. Sheldon Sullivan. We can provide you with a thorough examination, and facilitate further screenings and testing for sleep apnea in Gilbert, Arizona.
