The Sleep Disorder Center of Louisiana is a state of the art sleep center, and the only nationally accredited sleep lab in the Southwest Louisiana area. Our accreditation is through the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
The Sleep Disorder Center of Louisiana was established and began operation on March 1, 2000. Dr. Jana P. Kaimal, founder and Medical Director of the Sleep Center, is the only Board Certified Sleep Specialist in this area. In February of 2006, Kenneth Gary, Nurse Practitioner, was added to the team. The Sleep Disorder Center of Louisiana specializes in the diagnosis and management of many sleep disorders such as Sleep Apnea, Restless Leg Syndrome, Shift worker's Sleep Disorder, Insomnia and Narcolepsy.
Our trained and registered Sleep Technicians perform 4 sleep studies a night, as well as some daytime testing. As an added convenience to our qualified patients, in 2003 we added a Respiratory Therapist to focus on the set up and initiation of CPAP therapy for those patients needing treatment for sleep apnea.
In October of 2003, after undergoing a site visit and survey by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, we were proud to receive our 5-year reaccredidation.
