The practice has a large pediatric narcolepsy and insomnia program and utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy for the management of insomnia and psychotherapy for the management of anxiety induced sleep disorders, and narcolepsy. Sleep apnea management is actively pursued and when necessary CPAP and BIPAP titrations are performed. In addition Multiple Sleep Latency Tests  (MSLT) and Maintenance of Wakefulness Tests (MWT) are used at all our locations in the management of patients with hypersomnia.


The practice has the only behavioral sleep medicine program in Central Florida and is staffed by 2 board certified pediatric sleep physicians, a clinical psychologist and a Doctor Nurse Practitioner with certification in behavioral sleep medicine (CBSM). Cognitive behavioral therapy as well as individual and family therapy are offered for the management of sleep disorders in children to reduce the need for medications in patient management and to improve the effectiveness of therapies even when medications are needed


The practice performs tertiary center level lung function testing for children with lung conditions and asthma and can perform these services in children as young as 3 years of age. We also do allergy testing and evaluation for gastroesophageal reflux disease (Heartburn).  All new appointments are completed in less than 2 weeks. We believe that no child should wait for care.
