Dr. Stern, of Snoring & CPAP Solutions LLC office in Lake County, has been treating sleep apnea with oral appliances for two decades. During that time, he has personally seen countless patients experience better sleep, better health, and better quality of life. He strongly believes that everyone should have the opportunity to explore this potentially life changing treatment option, which is why he offers free consultations for apnea, snoring, and other sleep-breathing conditions.
Could you have apnea?
In reality, everyone is at risk for apnea. It is commonly seen in older, obese patients, especially males. However, not everyone fits the profile of a classic apnea patient. For example, a young female with an especially slender neck and small jaw likely has a narrow airway. Therefore, she may be just as likely to suffer from obstructive sleep apnea as the older male with a large neck crowding his airway. Additionally, although it is more common in adults, sleep apnea in children does occur.
Symptoms to watch for include:
- Snoring, frequently and loudly
- Sleepiness during the day, constantly feeling tired
- Awakening with a sore throat
- Poor concentration, moodiness, forgetfulness
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Acid reflux
- Frequent headaches in the mornings
- Coughing and gasping during the night
What a consultation includes
As the name suggests, the primary purpose of this appointment is discussion. It is your chance to ask questions, explore treatment options, and get a better understanding of the condition. We will discuss what is involved in sleep apnea diagnosis, options in treatment and more. Even if you do not have apnea, but are bothered by loud snoring, remedies are available.
The appointment typically also includes a brief examination, checking neck size, jaw shape, and other physical features that increase apnea risk. Overall, expect your consultation to take approximately 30 minutes, after which we will schedule a follow-up appointment if needed.

No, not everyone with sleep apnea snores. Snoring is a common and recognizable symptom of sleep apnea, but it’s possible to have sleep apnea without snoring. If you suspect you have sleep apnea, the only way to be sure is to undergo a sleep test.
On the other hand, it’s also possible to snore without having sleep apnea. If your sleep test shows that you don’t have sleep apnea, you can still get an oral appliance to help with your snoring.
At your consultation, Dr. Stern will discuss your options with you. If you haven’t already undergone your sleep test, we can arrange a take-home sleep test for you. Once you have a sleep apnea diagnosis or are seeking a solution for your snoring, Dr. Stern can help you find a treatment that works for you.
