WARNING: Sleep Apnea and Surgery
If you plan to have surgery, it is very important to tell your surgeon and anesthesiologist that you have been diagnosed with and are being treated for sleep apnea. The drugs used to sedate patients for surgery can make sleep apnea worse which can lead to complications.

Coordinated Care
SleepWell Solutions is committed to working with your own medical and dental practitioners to provide you with the best care possible. Upon your request, we will send progress reports about your treatment to the doctors of your choice (e.g. primary care physician, dentist, cardiologist, ENT, OB/GYN, etc.).

You may use the form below to have information sent to your physicians and dentist. Please complete the form and fax it to SleepWell Solutions at (214) 987-4827.
