Sleep medicine

Good sleep for better health

Poor sleep can affect your quality of life and, more important, your health. Sleep disorders can contribute to many serious health issues, such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke

Additionally, poor sleep can make you drowsy, putting you and others at risk while driving and doing other tasks. To learn more about sleep disorders, visit our Health Library.

The good news is that many sleep disorders can be treated.

The first step may be undergoing a sleep study. Talk to your doctor about having tests at Legacy Sleep Services, available at several Legacy Health medical centers.

Before you make an appointment

If your primary care physician refers you, we'll perform the appropriate tests and give him or her the results.
