At Creekside Sleep Medicine Center, we evaluate and treat the full spectrum of sleep disorders. Our goal is to listen first, investigate when necessary, and present options for treating your sleep problem. We work with other community experts to coordinate your care and make sure that you have all the information you need to actively participate in your treatment. We believe that personalized sleep care results in the best outcome for the patient with a sleep disorder. You can look forward to restful nights, more productive days, and better health.
To our patients:
These are challenging times for all of us. As there is concern about increasing cases of Covid-19 in King County, I want to assure you that Creekside Sleep Medicine Center will remain open. We want to make sure that your sleep issues can be addressed, that your equipment works well, and that your questions can be answered.
While we are here to help you, we will encourage you to use telemedicine for appointments with physicians. Of course, many quick questions can be answered through the Patient Portal. If you have an Inspire implant, a physician may approve an in-person office visit. Please do not come to the Creekside Sleep Medicine Center offices without an appointment. We are following all recommended procedures if you need to come in, but we are trying to minimize in-person contact for everyone’s safety and health.
We will continue to do home sleep testing, typically by mailing the device to you. You can feel confident that the device is sanitized according to recommended protocols. We will perform in-person, laboratory sleep studies on a case-by-case basis. For a laboratory sleep study, you will be required to have a Covid-19 virus screening test 72 hours before the study.
For help with PAP equipment, you are encouraged to reach out through the portal with questions and to arrange to receive supplies. To start on PAP therapy, we prefer that you pick up or let us mail the equipment with a scheduled telephone session to walk you through the set-up, initial instructions, and to answer your questions. We hope to minimize direct contact, but if something you need requires an in-person appointment and cannot be delayed, we will do our best to accommodate you.
As the holidays draw closer, we hope you can find many things for which to be thankful. We are grateful for the trust you put in us to help you with your sleep issues.
Stay well and create a joyous season!
