Specially trained sleep technologists explain the process of a sleep study, answer questions, and monitor the brain waves, heart rate, and other activities of the patient during the study. Sleep physicians, board-certified or board-qualified in internal medicine and sleep medicine, interpret the test results and recommend the proper course of treatment. Either a sleep physician or a primary care physician can refer you for a sleep study. With Summa you have access to nationally known sleep medicine physicians who treat hundreds of patients who experience a wide range of sleep disorders each year.
