National Sleep Awareness Week

Discover the Importance of Sleep with AMA Health Providers

Did you know that as many as 50 to 70 million Americans battle with sleep disorders, according to a study conducted by the American Sleep Association? As National Sleep Awareness Week approaches (March 10-16, 2024) it's time to shine a light on the crucial role sleep quality plays in our overall health.

Walid Tanyous, MD, a renowned pulmonologist and sleep specialist at AMA Health Providers, stresses the need to address sleep concerns. In his efforts to improve patient care, he focuses on training medical students and internists to identify and treat sleep disorders effectively.

During your next annual physical exam, Dr. Tanyous suggests opening up about your sleep patterns. Answer a few simple questions: Do you snore? Do you experience interrupted sleep? These conversations could lead to a detailed evaluation and enhance the support you receive.

Both doctors and patients must prioritize discussing sleep habits. Adequate sleep is not only critical for physical well-being but also affects mental health. By addressing sleep issues, we can improve overall health and enhance our quality of life.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Tanyous, call 941.559.0262 today. For more information, visit or connect with them on Facebook and Instagram @amahealthproviders.
