Our Services


Sleep Studies & Testing

Testing includes overnight observation to monitor heart function, stages of sleep, blood oxygen levels and sleeping positions. These procedures are performed in the friendly, comfortable environment unique to the CRMC Sleep Disorders Center.

Counseling
Sleep Disorders can often be effectively treated with advice and training in special techniques. If your physician feels that your case requires specialized counseling, an appropriate referral for our counseling services will be made.

Scheduling /Referrals
The CRMC Sleep Disorders Center will accept emergency sleep study patients from outside of our area if their physician works through one of the CRMC Sleep Disorders Center physicians.

If a request for a sleep evaluation is initiated by your primary physician, all arrangements will be made as need through the CRMC Sleep Disorders Staff.

Insurance
Sleep Disorders are recognized medical problems. However, individual insurance carriers vary tremendously in their reimbursement policies. We suggest that each patient contact his or her insurance provider prior to testing to find out their reimbursement policy. Cullman Regional Medical Center will make every effort to assist patients of the CRMC Sleep Disorders Center with their claim and will file and insurance claim on behalf of the patient if insurance information is provided.
