Sleep DisordersHelping You Get the Rest You Need

Sarasota Memorial’s Sleep Disorders Center is an outpatient facility equipped to evaluate and treat people suffering from sleep apnea and other sleep-related problems.Established in 1992, the center has consistently been awarded the nation’s highest level of accreditation by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

Our Team
We have five board-certified physicians specializing in sleep disorders medicine under the direction of Glenn Adams, MD. Our sleep specialists provide testing and treatment for the following conditions and symptoms:

  • Insomnia
  • Snoring
  • Sleep apnea
  • Narcolepsy
  • Sleep-wake schedule disorders
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Sleepwalking
  • Nocturnal myoclonus
  • Nocturnal asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Parasomnias
  • REM sleep behavior disorders
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • Sleep disorders in the elderly
  • Sleep disorders in children 


Sleep Studies
We consult with and evaluate each patient to determine appropriate therapy. Our sleep studies use painless, noninvasive technology to record heart rate, brain waves, breathing, oxygenation, and eye and leg movement. Hospitalization is not required.  Most insurance policies that cover outpatient tests also cover the cost of an evaluation at an accredited sleep center. Medicaid and Medicare may have more restrictive coverage policies. 

We also evaluate patients for Provent, a new therapy that provides an easy-to-use alternative for people with obstructive sleep apnea. Watch our Provent education video here.
