The Gillette Children's Sleep Health Clinic was awarded re-accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). The surveyor reported the team performed excellently and noted that we have one of the most well-run sleep labs he has ever reviewed.
AASM is the gold standard by which the medical community and the public evaluate sleep medicine facilities. Achieving the five-year AASM accreditation demonstrates a sleep medicine provider’s commitment to high-quality, patient-centered care through adherence to these standards.
The Sleep Medicine Clinic at Gillette is lead by John Garcia, MD, a board-certified sleep specialist. He and his team work with patients who have disorders like obstructive sleep apnea, sleepwalking, circadian rhythm disorders, and restless legs syndrome. He uses a combination of behavior management, medications, surgery and other therapies in his practice, taking care to put the patient first.
“I believe patient care is a reciprocal relationship—an exchange between the patient and physician. Families give us their trust. In return, our team provides medical care and treatment,” Garcia says. “Often a family will come to us having struggled with a child’s sleep disorder for years. They believe that’s just how life is. The good news is that it really doesn’t have to be.”
