A member of my family snores horribly loud and needs to go see a sleep doctor in the northern virginia area, preferably Western Fairfax County or Loudoun County area. I've seen a few places online, but I don't know who it good, or can come recommended.

Anyone have good or bad experiences with any sleep docs in our area?

Washingtonian Magazine (maybe Northern Virginia Magazine too) puts out an issue every couple of years of the best doctors and specialists. So does the Washington Checkbook.

You can view old articles on their website for the Washingtonian and the Washington Checkbook is available at most library locations if you don't want to pay for an online subscription. Sleep doctors I believe are mostly neurologists (i.e. a sub-specialty within neurology).

Anyways, I pretty sure that most people see their general practitioners first before seeing a neurologist. If so, I'm sure they'll recommend some sleep doctors in that area.

My husband went to see a doctor with the Pulmonary and Critical Care Specialist of Northern VA (www.nvpcca.com) about 5 years ago when he was having issues with snoring. This group of pulmonary specialists have several offices in the Northern Va area. My husband was diagnosed with sleep apnea after going through several tests including a sleep study. He was pleased with the care that he received. The physcians in this group that are listed in the Washingtonian Magazine Top Doctor List 2010 are Drs Bloom, Lamberti, Libre, Vaughey, and Williams. I have been using the Washingtonian Top Doctor List for many years to find good doctors - so far the ones we have used have been very good!

Thanks everyone... I'll look them up.

I'm afraid Dr. Johnny Walker or Dr. Jim Bean will only make the snoring worse...haha

I used to work for a sleep center there in Nova. Several dr's can write for a study...Dr. Bergman and Dr Mellis, both ENT's are very good. Dr James Lee in Ashburn is also very good.

I have been a patient at the Northern Virginia Sleep Diagnostic Center. I think it has about eight physicians. Mine is Dr. LoRusso, who I highly recommend. Have also heard raves about Dr. DiCiccio.

The Northern Virginia Sleep Diagnostic Center

They have offices all over Fairfax, but I am not sure that all of them do sleep studies. I had my study at the facility at the corner of Prosperity and Arlington Blvd in Fairfax. If this is not convenient for you, hopefully they have other lab facilities.

My roommate had a full-fledged, multiple-night (IIRC) sleep study done in.. '05, maybe? Before I moved here, anyway. (He had very bad insomnia, but ended up being diagnosed as 'normal.') I'll ask him who he used (and if he liked them) when I see him later this evening, so check to this thread!

NM my previous post - he didn't care for the doctor and thought the study was a waste of money.

No doc recs, but some allergy or cold meds chased with red wine is a great way to sleep like a log, no snoring or moving, wake up in exactly the same position you fell asleep. Or so I've heard.

Just make sure you can devote 8 - 14 hours to a good night's rest.
