The sleep study at Empire Sleep was as pleasant as it could be. Their staff was amazingly helpful. In 3 months, I went from 43 sleep disturbances per hour to less than one per hour. Empire Sleep knows their stuff! I highly recommend them.
I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Empire Sleep. I was anxious about how my son was going to respond to all the cords and electrodes, but your technician was wonderful. He was so patient and easy going – it put me at ease. Please extend our gratitude for making what could be a stressful event very easy.
As a public transportation technician, the quality of my sleep is essential to my job and the safety of my passengers. My study was extremely informative and helped me tremendously with my sleep habits. The staff was very professional making my overnight stay comfortable. I would recommend your lab to anyone.
I found the reception staff friendly and efficient and the waiting area peaceful and spacious. The nurses and doctors were all kind, thorough and knowledgeable. I felt heard as I explained why I was there and comfortable during the exam. I could not have asked for a more peaceful experience.
Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that I completed the Sleep Study last night at your Brooklyn location. Ann was my Technician and she was a real pleasure to work with. She was so professional and really seemed to know her job well. I was very impressed and I should have had this done several years ago...please give my gratitude to your staff and the upper management.
