Mercy's Sleep Medicine Clinic at Physician Plaza in Rogers, AR has developed a comprehensive program dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders in children and adults.

Insomnia – Difficulty falling and staying asleep, which is the most common of all sleep disorders
Sleep apnea – Temporarily not breathing during sleep, which can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and depression
Restless leg syndrome – Leg discomfort that worsens at night and may include burning, itching or the urge to move the legs
Narcolepsy – Disruption of the sleep-wake cycle that causes extreme tiredness, sudden attacks of sleep and muscle weakness at any time of day
Parasomnia – Abnormal behaviors when falling asleep, sleeping or waking up, such as sleepwalking, talking, eating, nightmares, bedwetting, hallucinations, paralysis and more
Sleep deprivation is not only the result of a lack of sleep but also a lack of quality sleep. This can lead to fatigue, drowsiness, cognitive impairment, personal stress, reduced quality of life and even injuries. Moreover, there are many clinical complications resulting from sleep disorders, including high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, depression and others.
Our highly trained and licensed staff members perform sleep studies, which are then interpreted by our board-certified sleep medicine specialists. Sleep studies are performed at Mercy Sleep Center - Physician Plaza.
Our hospital-based outpatient sleep facility has hotel-like rooms offering sleep number beds, private bathrooms and showers to accommodate our patients. Our facility is also accredited to provide home sleep apnea tests. Both these facilities are accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
In patients with poor quality sleep or daytime sleepiness, the first step toward a better night's sleep is a comprehensive evaluation by a Mercy sleep medicine specialist. This expert will listen to your concerns and help develop a plan to meet your needs.
As part of your sleep disorder treatment, your sleep medicine provider may recommend a consultation with a sleep psychologist, psychiatrist, otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat specialist), pulmonologist, cardiologist, dentist or a physician specializing in weight reduction.
