That has been my experience. I have a friend who also has sleep issues, and she was seeing the head of sleep at USC and I asked her to ask him about UARS. The response was "that is just another word for snoring" ! So I figured instead of me calling every doctor on the west coast, asking here might yield better results.
......Just to let you know: i myself have UARS and its companions RLS/PLM's. I pretty much forgot about MD to help me, except for some prescriptions and some discussions; ultimate decisions, at least thus far, are mine; It might change eventually. In my country, i am afraid doctors only heard about those, If. 
I have been experiencing for some 6 months, with my BPAP and Oscar. I am doing rather well; many everyday learnings. I don't even imagine myself waiting for a doctor give me directions on what EPAPmin an PS i Will Go tonight, as well as whether i Will Go with pregabalin or valerian.
Good luck
