Sleep Resources for a Better Night’s Rest from Sleep Expert Wynne Chen, MD

“The best part of my job as a sleep physician is having the opportunity to meet interesting people every day and educate them about a vital part of their daily lives that is often overlooked–their sleep.”
Wynne Chen, MD, Pulmonary & Sleep Disorder Clinic

“We now know that common sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) spares no one, and afflicts the young and old alike, often without classic symptoms such as loud snoring or frank apneas,” says Wynne Chen, MD, a physician at Valley Medical Center’s Pulmonary & Sleep Disorder Clinic. “Indeed, OSAS in children can mimic ADHD, and fatigue and insomnia may herald the onset of sleep-disordered breathing among thin individuals. In diagnosing sleep disorders, I am gratified in helping patients fit the pieces together in the puzzle of symptoms that they often have struggled with for years. In the process, I also appreciate that related discussions about diet and promoting a healthy lifestyle, can further empower them to take greater responsibility for their present and future health.”
