Sleep Disorder Diagnosis & Treatment

We collaborate with psychologists, dentists, pulmonologists, and ENT surgeons in order to offer comprehensive care for any type of sleep problem in adults, adolescents and children over 3 years of age.

About Sleep Medicine Services

In December 2005, Sleep Medicine Services was founded in Amherst by Drs. George Howard and Brian Smith, both board-certified neurologists and sleep specialists. Ours was the first sleep disorders program in Western Massachusetts to be accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Over the years, we have been pleased to associate with other sleep medicine providers and various specialists who have interest and expertise in sleep disorders.

In-Lab (Overnight) Sleep Studies

Individuals with symptoms of sleep disorders such as excessive daytime sleepiness, snoring, insomnia, nighttime awakenings, abnormal sleep behaviors, and restless legs can be referred by their physician to Sleep Medicine Services for sleep assessment. This may include a clinical evaluation and/or sleep testing; polysomnogram (overnight sleep study) or a home sleep test. Learn More→

Home Sleep Testing

Our office uses ResMed Apnea Link Air and Plus Home Sleep Testing devices to detect the diagnosis of sleep-related breathing disorders. This monitors respiratory disturbances, nasal airflow, snoring and blood oxygen saturation.

Home sleep testing is done for one night only unless a clinician has recommended differently. The decision to pursue a Home Sleep Test (HST) as opposed to an in-lab Polysomnogram (PSG) will be made after review of your symptoms and medical history with a provider.

If your test is negative for sleep apnea and there are still significant concerns that you may have sleep apnea, your provider may recommend an in-lab Polysomnogram for further evaluation.
