Do you frequently toss and turn all night and wake up feeling tired? If so, you’re not alone. According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 70 million people in the United States may be affected by sleeping. In an effort to help diagnose and evaluate the growing number of people with sleep disorders, a state-of-the-art sleep clinic in Fremont has created a "sleep-friendly" treatment center.
The Washington Township Center for Sleep Disorders is one of only two sleep treatment facilities in the entire East Bay and is the only sleep center affiliated with Washington Hospital Healthcare System. The Center is also accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
The Washington Township Center for Sleep Disorders offers the most advanced technology to diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions related to sleep including:
The sleep clinic is a collaborative resource of multi-disciplinary specialists designed to provide comprehensive patient care for individuals suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, snoring, restless leg syndrome and other difficulties that are keep people up at night.

Featured in the Huffington Post, Katherine Albrecht, lifehacker, empowHER, and the Times of India, Dr. Nitun Verma, is a sleep medicine physician who has been trained specifically in the treatment of adult and pediatric sleep disorders.
"As a comprehensive sleep clinic, our goal is to collaborate with our patients and find a treatment plan that works for them,” says Dr. Verma. “What makes the Washington Center for Sleep Disorders unique is that we are teaming up with other clinicians such as ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons, primary care physicians, and orthodontists to work with patients on finding a solution that best fits their lifestyle."
Sleep Apnea Often Goes Undiagnosed
Obstructive sleep apnea, a potentially serious disorder in which the person’s airway collapses or is blocked during sleep is one of the most serious sleep disorders, affecting an estimated 12 million American adults. Sleep apnea is usually a chronic, ongoing condition that disrupts the person’s sleep several times a night, resulting in poor sleep quality that causes daytime fatigue and sleepiness.
Sleep Clinic Treats Children and Those Suffering from Insomnia
The Washington Center for Sleep Disorders is one of only a few sleep clinics in the Bay Area to offer a pediatric sleep center that helps children with sleeping problems. Dr. Verma has special training working with children and has published studies in the field of pediatric sleep.
"Kids who get overtired are often hyperactive, rather than sleepy,” Dr. Verma observes. “So children with sleep apnea are often diagnosed as having attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and are treated with stimulants, which makes the problem worse. This doesn’t mean that all hyperactive kids have sleep apnea, but it would be good to rule out sleep problems before prescribing stimulants."
The Washington Center for Sleep Disorders also treats insomnia, one of only two sleep clinics in Northern California to treat this disorder.
Clinic Offers High Quality Treatment
The new sleep clinic facility features hotel-style amenities that include a private bathroom and shower. Mimicking a natural home setting, patients can watch television and DVDs in a comfortable, spa like environment.
"Our staff is excited to offer a full-service, comprehensive sleep clinic that is convenient and treats all of our patients under one roof."
