Welcome to Columbia University Sleep Disorders Center




The Columbia Sleep Disorders Center, Neurology Division, is staffed by neurologists experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of all sleep disorders.

Disorders we see frequently include:

  • Narcolepsy (a brain disorder with disrupted ability to stay awake)
  • Hypersomnia (excessive sleepiness despite adequate sleep)
  • Parasomnias (abnormal behaviors at night while asleep such acting out dreams, sexual behaviors, sleep eating, sleep walking)
  • Circadian Rhythm disturbances (sleeping at inappropriate times)
  • Insomnia (inability to fall asleep, stay asleep, or early awakening)
  • Obstructive and/or central sleep apnea (gasping/choking or stopping breathing during sleep)

We provide expert consultations as well as a wide range of testing [link to testing] such as overnight polysomnography, multiple sleep latency testing and maintenance of wakefulness testing. In addition, we have the capacity to perform simultaneous video-EEG monitoring when indicated, such as when patients have known or suspected epilepsy. Both weekday and weekend testing is available. Home testing is available from our 51st Street office during business hours however in-lab testing is performed at our center at 168th Street.

We have a special emphasis on neurology and psychiatry patients with sleep disorders. Sleep disorders are particularly prominent in patients with neurodegenerative diseases, epilepsy, and stroke and testing may be indicated with any persistent, unexplained sleep disturbance. We accept most insurance.
