A consultation appointment is an office visit with one of our board certified sleep physicians. During the evaluation, your doctor will review your medical history and perform a physical exam.
You will be asked to discuss your sleep complaints as well as any other related conditions. Your physician will work with you to develop a treatment plan and may recommend a sleep study.
It is always wise to prepare a list of questions and key issues you would like to discuss before your appointment to ensure all of your questions are answered.
In order to ensure your visit goes smoothly, please:
If you are a new patient, please complete this New Patient Questionnaire. If you have previously been seen by a sleep specialist, please complete this New Patient Questionnaire – Previously Seen. If you do not want to complete the questionnaire online, please print, complete and bring the attached hard copy to your appointment.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment for registration purposes.
If you have difficulty staying alert while driving please make arrangements for transportation to and from your appointment.
If you arrive more than 10 minutes late to your scheduled appointment, we will reschedule your appointment. Our late policy is necessary to ensure that there is adequate time for your physician to complete your consult.
If you are unable to make a scheduled appointment, please call the appointment line at 865-305-8761, option 1, as soon as possible so we can offer the appointment time to another patient.
After your initial consultation you will be scheduled for a follow-up visit. This visit can be to discuss the results of any testing and/or to monitor your response to treatment.
You will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire when you arrive at the clinic, or if you prefer, please complete the Sleep Follow-Up Questionnaire about a day before your follow-up appointment. Your sleep physician will review your responses at your appointment.
