Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea is a serious health condition that disrupts your breathing throughout the night due to an obstructed airway. This can wreak havoc on you both your physical and mental state due to lack of quality sleep. Fortunately, Dr. Bassford provides comfortable CPAP alternatives for patients who suffer from sleep apnea.
