CONSULTATION & EDUCATION
A consultation is first required for all teens to understand the concerns, to confirm the diagnosis, and to evaluate if investigations (ex. a sleep study) are required. After the consultation, education is provided and treatment options are discussed.
These services typically take place over 1-2 appointments*. The presence of a parent and/or caregiver is suggested for these appointments.
*Please note: During the current work-from-home circumstances, all new consultations will be arranged through the administrative staff at Dr. Ooi's other practice location, MedSleep Toronto Sleep Institute. All care is being delivered virtually.
If you live in Ontario, Canada and are between the ages of 13-26, there are two options to work with Dr. Ooi and access the DECODE Insomnia services within a clinical setting.
If you do not live in Ontario or you are not between the ages of 13-26, the DECODE Insomnia Program is available as an online course (DECODE ONLINE) with additional Q&A support. Click here to learn more.
