Becoming a Patient
If you are concerned that you may have a sleep disorder, you should discuss your symptoms with your primary care provider. If necessary, he or she will refer you to the Center for Sleep Disorders for a consultation and/or a sleep study. We accept direct referrals from all community physician providers and specialty providers.
The Center for Sleep Disorders is open continuously from Sunday at 7pm until Saturday at 7am. Our administrative hours are 8am-4:30pm, Monday through Friday.
Our support staff are familiar with the benefits provided by many insurance plans and can help you with your insurance coverage questions. However, you may want to check with your insurance company about copayments and referral requirements for your specific plan.
What to Bring
When you schedule your first appointment, our skilled support staff will provide you with all the information you need to help you make the most of your visit.
When you arrive, you may be asked to complete patient intake forms, including release-of-information forms that allow Rutland Regional’s Center for Sleep Disorders to coordinate your care and share information with your primary care physician or specialty physicians. To make sure your visit goes smoothly, we recommend bringing the following items:
- Insurance card
- Photo ID
- Copayment, if required by your insurance
- A list of treatments and medical health history
- A complete list of all medications that you are taking (including over-the-counter medications and supplements)
- Notes from your last few physician visits, if applicable
- A list of questions or concerns
If you are having a sleep study, your physician and our office staff will provide you with specific instructions on what to bring with you. We also encourage you to schedule a tour of the Sleep Center and ask questions prior to your sleep study.
