Raleigh Neurology, the area's premier group neurology practice, established the Sleep Medicine Program in response to the increasing awareness of sleep-related disorders and consequent demand for expert diagnosis and treatment. Formed in 1983, Raleigh Neurology currently serves more than 130,000 patients and is the largest neurology practice in the Triangle area.
Backed by resources, expertise of the practice and our new facility, the Sleep Medicine program is a comprehensive, full-service clinical facility providing state-of-the-art capabilities. Our staff is highly qualified and specifically trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of sleep disorders.
A. Thomas Perkins, MD, PhD, is the medical director of the Sleep Medicine Program and has completed his Adult Neurology residency and fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology at the renowned Duke University Medical Center and is a member of the both the American Sleep Disorders Association and the National Sleep Foundation. He brings with him years of specialized training and experience in the field of sleep medicine.
Operating with the latest, most advanced technology for the diagnosis of sleep disorders, the Sleep Medicine Program can provide patients with the best possible care in a relaxed environment. Unlike the majority of other sleep clinics, our Sleep Medicine Program isn't located within a hospital complex, making the location more accessible and convenient for patients. The rooms are furnished with patient comfort in mind, featuring regular beds instead of hospital beds and a pleasant atmosphere that looks and feels as much like home as possible. This setting provides a more favorable environment for conducting a sleep study, the most common procedure for evaluating and classifying disorders.
Competent technologic assistance is essential to the successful pursuit of an accurate and interpretable sleep study. The Sleep Medicine Program at Raleigh Neurology has skilled technologists who use what is arguably the finest in diagnostic tools for performing sleep studies including the latest in hardware and software installations.
