Since the Sleep
Center opened in November 2004, we've helped
thousands of patients sleep better and live
happier. In fact, we perform an average of 200
sleep studies per month. Our patients are
consistently amazed at the difference a healthy
sleep life can make...and we want to share their
stories with you.

I read an article about a boy who was diagnosed with ADHD, but
actually had a sleep disorder. My son had many of the same symptoms so I asked
my doctor to have him evaluated for a sleep disorder. The sleep center staff was
fantastic. Desmond felt very safe and comfortable and I was able to stay with
him during the entire process. The experience was actually fun. Since starting
treatment, Desmond's ADHD symptoms are gone, his attention in school is better,
and he sleeps through the night. Desmond is like a new kid.
Donald's Story - Connecticut
was dizzy, drowsy and would suddenly pass out during the day. Even after an
extensive medical evaluation that included a brain MRI, an echocardiogram and
heart stress testing, no diagnosis was found. When I came to Everett, the
doctors thought the spells were due to a sleep disorder. After an overnight
sleep test, I was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. Now the
spells and drowsiness are gone. I haven't had this much energy in years! Who
would have thought a sleep disorder could cause all of my symptoms?
Matthew's Story - Marysville, WA
lost my job because I would fall asleep in meetings. I could barely stay awake
during the day. I went to your sleep center and had a great experience. The
technicians were very friendly, helpful and professional.
Now that my sleep disorder is under control, my life is back
on track. I have a new job and plenty of energy to stay awake all day.
Susan's Story - Snohomish, WA
have napped daily for more years than I can remember. I had no energy, was
depressed, and could hardly make it through the day. Then I had my sleep
disorders evaluation and treatment. At your sleep center the staff was very
knowledgeable and spent a lot of quality time explaining everything so I always
knew what to expect. The room and bed were so comfortable -- it was like a five
star hotel! The results have been wonderful. I am so happy and relieved to
finally have my life back. Thank you!
Jeff's Story - Everett, WA
was having severe headaches and taking addicting painkillers. I ended up on
short-term disability due to sleepiness, mood swings and irritability. I would
also nod off while driving. My doctor recommended a sleep disorders evaluation,
which included an overnight stay at the North Puget Sound Center for Sleep
Disorders. The staff was fantastic, as was the view and accommodations. Since
being treated for my sleep disorder, my headaches are gone. I am back to work
and in a great mood.
Stephanie's Story - Everett, WA
used to dread bedtime. I was sluggish and tired all day long. Even on short car
trips, I would pull over for a nap. Once I nodded off while driving and hit a
guardrail. My physician referred me to the Sleep Center. I was skeptical, but
the staff was awesome. They are extremely knowledgeable, professional, and
friendly. I was so comfortable -- It was like spending the night in a nice
hotel. Now that my sleep disorder is treated, I feel refreshed and ready to go
in the morning. For the first time in years, I feel like I have my life back.
