According to America's Health Rankings with the United Health Foundation, about 33.2 percent of Texans regularly get insufficient sleep in a 24-hour period. This means that up to a third of Texan residents may face issues like insomnia, loud snoring, sleep apnea, and nocturia every night. Without treatment, these sleep issues can lead to many health problems, including high blood pressure, mental illnesses, and extreme fatigue, as well as drowsy driving and auto accidents.
To facilitate diagnosis and treatment of these conditions, Star Sleep & Wellness has recently opened a new location in North Irving at 290 E John W Carpenter Fwy, Suite 2700. In addition to the new Irving location, Star Sleep & Wellness recently opened locations in Dallas, Denton, Frisco and Plano.
Unlike other sleep centers, Star Sleep & Wellness practices provide truly comprehensive services. Instead of sending patients from specialist to specialist, Star Sleep & Wellness brings all the experts to the patient to provide the appropriate treatment(s).
Traditionally, people who suffer from sleep apnea and other disorders must first undergo a sleep study with a sleep physician. After being diagnosed, they usually need to visit various practices to figure out the cause and identify therapies that will best help them achieve deeper, more restful sleep.
On the staff at Star Sleep & Wellness, CEO Dr. Kent Smith has assembled a "dream team" of sleep specialists at of the top of their fields, including sleep physicians, a licensed psychologist, nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistant (PA), and sleep dentists. As a result, Dr. Smith says, "Star Sleep & Wellness is able to not only diagnose sleep disorders through testing but also provide care from start to finish in one office with therapies that range from oral appliances to psychiatric treatment, from CPAPs to weight loss support."
Dr. Smith also says, "With all our expertise and locations, help with sleep issues is more accessible for everyone." Through this team approach, Star Sleep & Wellness can help people with sleep conditions consistently get a good night's rest, reducing fatigue and many other negative symptoms.
