Abid Bhat, MD MBA, Sleep Medicine Specialist and a firm believer in integrating Western Medicine with Mind-Body Therapies.

Dr Abid Bhat has been in the practice of Sleep Medicine for over 15 years. He has provided medical care to people with various sleep disorders, including insomnia (difficulty falling sleep or staying sleep), sleep apnea (a person snores loud and stops breathing in sleep), parasomnia (sleep walking), restless legs syndrome (urge to move legs while trying to fall sleep) and a number of other related conditions.

Millions of Americans continue to suffer from sleep disruption but, unfortunately, majority of them are undiagnosed.
