Associated Sleep Services was founded in 2006 by Carolyn Schur, a sleep educator and sleep and fatigue management specialist. Our mission is to get people with sleep disorders to diagnosis and treatment quickly and efficiently.
An overnight study at a sleep clinic is the most common diagnostic option for someone with sleep problems. However, waiting lines are long and most clinics focus on sleep apnea. Those with insomnia and circadian rhythm disorders are often left to their own resources.
With this in mind, an innovative model was developed that not only sees those with sleep apnea screened, diagnosed and treated more quickly, but which also assists those with insomnia and circadian rhythm disorders to be diagnosed and receive treatment appropriate to their symptoms.
In addition to the comprehensive assessment for individual clients, Associated Sleep Services also provides sleep disorder screening for employees in the workplace and professional development for health and wellness professionals who work with clients with sleep problems.
Who can make use of our services?
Anyone who is having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, has daytime sleepiness or difficulty waking, snores or needs to be tested for sleep apnea. We do assessments of adults, teens and children.
Is this centre the same as a hospital sleep clinic?
Yes and no. The purpose is the same, but the processes are different. Associated Sleep Services is a screening centre, while hospital clinics are equipped to provide diagnosis and treatment.
Both will collect information while you are sleeping if you are being checked for sleep apnea. However, the clinic requires that you sleep overnight in the clinic. Associated Sleep Services will provide you with equipment that will collect information while you sleep at home. This equipment will collect the critical information that a physician requires to confirm diagnosis and determine treatment.
Most sleep clinics are also focused on sleep apnea and do not always have the resources to diagnose and treat other sleep disorders. Associated Sleep Services provides service for all sleep disorders.
Do I need a doctor’s referral?
No. However, some health plans require a doctor’s referral as a condition of reimbursement.
To access our services call for an appointment (306-975-1165) or have your physician make a referral. Service fees are paid by the individual at the time of service. Receipts are provided.
