Need new doctor/sleep center
Having moved, changed insurances, etc and wanting to get my insurance to start paying for supplies for my cpap, I'm likely going to need a new doctor and/or sleep study center.

There's tons of them in houston. I live in the South East side of Houston and would appreciate it anyone knows any good doctors/centers or even which ones to avoid like the plague.

My last sleep study was in 2009, so I know they'll want a new one. Bleah.

Some sleep centers choose to be listed on the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) list but others centers choose not pay for such listing

You shouldn't need one. Do you have the prescription from your original one? While you wait, call your old doc office and ask to have your records sent to you. Tell them you don't have a doc yet but you need it on hand for the insurance. They should have a copy of the sleep study and a copy of the prescriptions.
