During the past two plus years of the Covid pandemic, sleep-related issues have become even more prevalent, leading to ill health and both physical and psychological difficulties. We have been providing TELEHEALTH Sleep Medicine services for both initial consultations and follow-up appointments. We see patients using secure audio and video connections. We employ all necessary sleep testing in the sleep lab or using home sleep studies.
Telehealth offers many advantages in caring for patients with sleep disorders that include reduced wait time to see the specialist, monitoring personalized care with timely visits and interactions, convenient visits, minimizing distant travel, and personal safety. Our patients have expressed high satisfaction and are very grateful to be able to stay in their own homes safely and continue with their care. Dr. Scheer encourages spouses, partners, and caretakers to participate in telehealth visits, which enhances the care of the patient.
We participate with many insurance companies. To schedule an appointment, please call the office at 941-342-3400.
Dr. Steven Scheer is board certified in sleep medicine. Dr. Scheer sees patients who suffer from a variety of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, snoring, insomnia, excessive daytime sleepiness, restless legs, and narcolepsy. Untreated sleep disorders can lead to a variety of medical problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and dementia, as well as depression and anxiety.
