Don't Just Wish for a Good Night's Sleep

Most of us know how hard it is to function when we have lost just one good night of sleep. But if you've been sleep deprived for a while, it can even seem normal to spend your days feeling sleepy. Often, only those close to you may notice that you are not as alert or function as well as in the past. While you may think that has to be your way of life, the truth is that getting sufficient sleep is critical to your long-term physical and mental health. Long-term lack of sleep can negatively affect your immune system, heart and brain health and ability to handle stress, not to mention increasing the risk for motor vehicle or other accidents. It can can lead to long-term health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, anxiety and depression. In addition to disorders that lead to insufficient sleep, dozens of other medical problems have been identified that occur during sleep and can impact your quality of life and that of your loved ones.

Whatever the cause, sleep disorders do not have to be your reality. Lee Brown, MD provides a variety of sleep-related services at the Sleep Institute of New Mexico to help you get a better night's sleep, for problems that include:

Patient Testimonials

"Dr. Brown was very thorough and gave me the most extensive exam I've had concerning my sleep apnea. His concerns also included my lung and heart health and how those issues might interact. His explanations made sense and I feel confident about his care." - J.P.

"I just had my sleep appointment with Dr. Brown. He was very thorough, gave me about an hour of his time and really was very specific and precise about the questions he asked to get a really accurate history of my sleep problems. He then explained things to me that I never even knew existed when it came to sleep problems and it looks like we're going to be able to address them, something I've been dealing with since I was 4 years old. It is a real pleasure to have someone of his caliber in Albuquerque." - P.T.
