About Sleep started as Sleep Apnoea Services in 2006, providing CPAP therapy from a small consulting room in Kidman Park Pharmacy. In 2008, demand for our service had increased to such an extent that we took over our adjoining premises and created 4 private consulting rooms dedicated to best-practice CPAP therapy.
Around 2010, a number of Adelaide sleep specialists pointed out to us that there was a serious lack of clinical services for patients with sleep disorders in Adelaide’s western suburbs. We responded to this problem by inviting a range of independent health professionals to consult from our clinic to meet the needs of referring doctors and patients.
In November 2012 we opened a new clinic in Marryatville to better serve sleep specialists and patients in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs. At the same time we decided to change our name to About Sleep to reflect the fact that our clinics now offer treatment services for patients with all kinds of sleep problems, not just sleep apnoea.
In 2016 we decided that, with the right approach, we could conduct Home Sleep Studies for patients from our clinics. We approached several well known Sleep Specialists who have rooms all over Adelaide, and together we conduct Home Sleep Studies. We call this part of the business "Ethical Sleep Studies". We expect our patients to get their sleep study results from a doctor, and also their treatment options. All our patients can see the specialist they choose to get their diagnosis and treatment plan. This will include fully supervised treatment paths which may include weight loss, supine avoidance, CPAP or right through to complex surgery.
About Sleep now has two fully equipped clinics and seven professionally trained and experienced staff who are completely dedicated to sleep problems. We also have a visiting Sleep Psychologist and Dentist, who offer other sleep therapy services.
