RE: sleep study
Have you ever felt comfortable with this doctor? Have you seen the actual RX the doctor sent to the sleep lab. I would pin down the details now and consider changing doctors if things don't add up.

I think I will make an appointment with a pulmonologist b/c my O2 was at 85 at the lowest and 92 at the highest.

RE: sleep study
I would still want to see the Rx for the sleep lab. I always believe everything people tell me then I verify. If I have reason to doubt I may verify 2 or 3 different ways.
Neither your sleep doctor or the lab has given you much reason to trust.
