At AvantSleep, we are a dedicated team of professionals that will guide and support you throughout the entire CPAP Therapy process including diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing follow-up.

The key for success to long term, positive health outcomes, and patient compliance with CPAP therapy have been shown to relate directly to the CPAP provider. We are committed to helping our patients achieve long term, positive health outcomes, and compliance by providing education and extensive support.

We are committed to providing the best possible experience for our patients.

What our patients are saying:

“Amazing should be all that needs to be said. All of the staff has gone the extra mile to ensure every detail of my sleep experience is of paramount importance. The personal attention to find the perfect fitted mask was extremely impressive and the follow-up service has made it all worthwhile. Thanks to Marlee and the rest of the staff, they are highly recommended!!!”

“I have been a patient for 6 years now and am very grateful for the excellent service I have received. When I speak to my friends who are going to other clinics, there is no comparison. The staff is very friendly and everyone is very accommodating to my needs. I had an opportunity lately to refer an acquaintance to your facility. I would highly recommend to anyone. Nothing but good praises from me. Appreciate all the care that I have received and look forward to my annual visits.”
