A large percentage of the "CERTIFIED" sleep docs seem to be more interested in running a money mill than actually treating the patient. Any sleep doc who doesn't insist on a fully data capable machine and use the data needs to have his medical license pulled.

I agree that good sleep docs are a godsend to apneacs. It's a shame that they're so hard to find.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.
