What to Expect

For patients, it's often helpful to know what to expect once you make the appointment. Here is a step-by-step explanation of what occurs once you initiate contact with the Jefferson Sleep Disorders Center:

Step 1

Your first step is to schedule an initial consultation with a Jefferson sleep specialist. When you schedule your appointment, we will provide you with an in-depth patient questionnaire. Please fill out the questionnaire completely before your appointment and remember to bring it with you.

Step 2

The next step is your initial consultation. Please allow an hour and a half for the appointment, which will also include a tour of our facility. Depending on the outcome of your consultation, the physician may order an in-lab or home sleep test. If so, we will schedule your study before you leave the Center.

  • In-lab sleep studies are available seven nights a week at the Center City location. Daytime studies performed as needed.
  • Home sleep tests are available for some patients. This is self-administered and occurs over two nights.

Step 3

If you are scheduled for an in-lab sleep study, simply arrive with your personal items on the day of the test. The Center provides the convenience and amenities you would expect from a hotel. (For night studies, the Center is open from 8 p.m. to 7:30 a.m., so you should eat dinner before your arrival.)

Step 4

Following your initial consultation and/or sleep study, we will ask you to schedule a follow-up appointment. During this appointment, the physician will review the results of your sleep study and/or recommend treatments.

Step 5

Once you have initiated treatment, we recommend that you follow up with your Jefferson sleep specialist every six to 12 months.
