Reaching Out to Improve Awareness
Just as important as Dr. Haddad’s revolutionary approach to care is his ongoing outreach to help patients in Detroit understand the risks of sleep apnea, get a positive diagnosis, and find effective treatment.
Dr. Haddad still employs a team approach to sleep apnea treatment, helping doctors get effective sleep apnea treatment for their patients. The thousands of patients he has successfully treated serve as ambassadors, spreading the word about the condition and the varied treatment options people have.
In addition, Dr. Haddad helps make it easy for patients to get tested for sleep apnea. With a basic phone interview and a copy of the driver’s license and insurance card, we can send the patient a home sleep test. After two nights of testing in the comfort of their own bed, patients can receive a positive diagnosis of sleep apnea, which directs them to get treatment.
By removing the barrier of an in-office sleep test or finding a sleep doctor to prescribe a test, the Michigan Center for TMJ and Sleep Wellness helps more people in Detroit get potentially life-saving sleep apnea treatment.
