Schedule your sleep study today 

Sleep is one of the most crucial parts of a healthy lifestyle. Despite this, only about 16% of Americans say that they don’t feel abnormally sleepy during an average week. 

You may be living with a sleep condition if you’re experiencing: 

  • Drowsiness during the day 
  • Frequent headaches 
  • Irregular sleep patterns 
  • Nights where you’re struggling to fall asleep 

If you’re dealing with any of these symptoms, you may need to schedule a sleep study at Sycamore Shoals Sleep Center.

How to prepare for your sleep exam 

Before your sleep evaluation, we do ask that you take a few extra steps to make sure that we’re able to collect the most useful information possible.   

  • Avoid drinking caffeine or taking naps on the day of the study. 
  • Don’t use hairspray, lotions or makeup, as these can make it difficult to apply the sensors that read your sleep habits. 

What to bring 

You can bring your own loose-fitting pajamas. You're also welcome to bring anything that will make you feel more comfortable - such as a laptop, book or magazine.

Also, be sure to bring:  

  • A list of your current medications
  • Photo ID
  • Insurance card

After your sleep study 

We always want to ensure that you are an active part of your treatment solution. 

After your sleep exam, one of our sleep specialists will reach out to you to discuss the findings of your test and suggest possible treatments to match your diagnosis. 

Hours of operation 

We are open on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

Our nighttime hours for sleep exams are 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
