Sleep Medicine doc in UCLA?
UCLA is a contracted provider with my health care. Does anyone know of a competent sleep med doc in the UCLA medical care system?

Thanks Trish, I've been trolling for a while, it's how I settled on the S9, read some great reviews on it, however the DME Apria... I want to send the entire kit sailing through their front window, I would never recommend this DME to my worst enemy... But I love the Bipap :grin:

Hi macamon,
Your welcome and I understand what you are saying about the DME, you're not the first one that has had problems with them, I think some people here have called them "Crapria," to show how disgusted they are with them and rightfuly so, just don't blame their ineptness on your S9, (Ha-Ha-Ha.)
By the way, I think there might be a couple links that deal with sleep centers in your area here on this board.
Take care.

Hi, Macamon,

I don't know of a specific doctor at UCLA, but here is a link to their sleep specialist's page:
http://sleepcenter.ucla.edu/body.cfm?id=38

Reading about their education and specialties - and where they practice sleep medicine - might help you begin your search for a sleep specialist at UCLA. Good luck and keep us informed.
