At Texas IPS, we offer approaches to managing the various types of sleep disorders, ranging from the commonly seen obstructive sleep apnea and restless legs syndrome, to more unusual conditions such as complex sleep apneas and hypersomnia syndromes including narcolepsy. A formal in-clinic consultation with our board-certified Sleep Medicine specialists includes a 30 to 60-minute initial visit aimed at clinically determining your likelihood for a sleep disorder and discussing the various testing modes available. We favor a patient-centered, interactive approach to help you optimize your sleep quality and quantity, including evidence-based education for good sleep hygiene at every visit.
We utilize state-of-the-art sleep lab facilities within the Methodist Health system and also offer the option of testing from the comfort of your own home. We also arrange for timely referrals to highly qualified dental and ENT providers within San Antonio for CPAP options to address sleep apnea, if clinically appropriate.

Although 16 million Americans have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, it remains remarkably misunderstood, even to some people already suffering.
Untreated obstructive sleep apnea presents very real threats: it can increase your risk of high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack, and has been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even glaucoma.
