Why choose Mayo ClinicBy Mayo Clinic Staff
- Finding and treating the cause of your snoring can be complex. Mayo Clinic doctors trained in sleep medicine have experience evaluating and treating people who snore or have other sleep-related conditions. Each Mayo Clinic location offers a sleep disorders center accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, staffed by specialists trained in treating sleep disorders.
- All your care is "under one roof." Our multidisciplinary care approach at Mayo Clinic means that whatever develops, all your needs can be treated here. Mayo Clinic doctors trained in adult and pediatric sleep medicine; ear, nose and throat conditions (otorhinolaryngologists); lung and breathing conditions (pulmonologists); mental health conditions (psychiatrists); brain conditions (neurologists); dental specialties (orthodontists); oral and maxillofacial surgery; and other areas work together as an integrated team to evaluate and treat your condition.
- Care at Mayo Clinic revolves around you. A detailed itinerary for appointments, tests and procedures lets us make the most of your time at the clinic. Our collaborative approach means two or three days often yields the same diagnosis and care insights that could take weeks in less coordinated institutions.

Our commitment to expand knowledge for all sleep clinic patients drives current research, as well as our clinical trials.
