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.
SERVICES & REFERRAL
At this time, there are three ways to work with Dr. Ooi and/or DECODE Insomnia.
