Dr. Avi founded I Am Sleep to raise awareness of sleep apnea, increase the quality of life for patients suffering from sleep apnea, and provide patients an innovative, affordable approach to diagnose and treat sleep apnea. Instead of the traditional doctor office visit and an overnight in-lab sleep study, you can now conveniently use our services from the comfort of your home, including telemedicine consultation, home sleep testing, treatment, compliance management, and education. Dr. Avi Ishaaya and his professional, dedicated staff are committed to listen to your concerns and formulate a personalized care plan that will be as convenient and personalized as possible.
We respect your time, therefore, you are able to conduct your sleep apnea consultation with Dr. Avi Ishaaya or one of our board certified physicians from the comfort of your home through our telemedicine program. Telemedicine consultation appointments are available seven days per week from 7am to 10pm. You no longer need to miss work, struggle with traffic and waste time in doctors’ waiting rooms. Simply, contact us and schedule your telemedicine consultation today.
Our award-winning home test is a convenient, fast and easy solution to finding out if you have sleep apnea. Most insurance carriers, including Medicare, consider the home test to be as reliable and accurate as in-lab testing. Your home test includes free FedEx shipping both ways and the interpretation of the test results by a board-certified sleep physician. Our staff will explain how to use the test before we ship it to you, and will be available to answer any questions you may have seven days (and nights) a week. (Due to certain medical conditions, in-lab testing may be required, which can be done at our affiliated fully accredited sleep lab in Southern California.)
Once you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, we will discuss with you different treatment options, including our APAP device. We will customize the device and accessories to your needs, and will continue to monitor your progress on treatment. We are committed to your success and are looking forward to be your partners to better sleep and better health.
