Your sleep is important to us
Waratah Private Hospital Sleep Clinic
Here’s why it’s important to you
Undiagnosed sleep disorders are common in our community, and this should be of greater concern. When you suffer from a chronic lack of sleep, you have a higher risk of heart disease and health issues, including diabetes. Sleep deprivation also contributes to weight gain, difficulty losing weight, a low libido, depression, and an increased risk of injury and accidents.
Most of us need an average of eight hours of sleep a night. If you’re struggling with the effects of sleeplessness, including snoring, frequent waking or choking during the night, or insomnia, please discuss a sleep study with your GP.
Waratah Private Hospital Sleep Clinic offers the most comprehensive sleep study clinic in New South Wales. This premium six-bedroom facility aids in the diagnosis and treatment of all sleep disorders, including more complex cases like narcolepsy.
The sleep clinic uses the latest technology and equipment, and is led by the highly experienced Dr David Freiberg with over 25 years in his field. Dr Freiberg’s talented specialist team includes medical physicians, scientists and technologists, all dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and clinical study of sleep.
