Dear SNA patients and friends,

At this time, Sleep and Neuroscience Associates (SNA) will remain open to continue to provide a high level of service to our patients and the community.

We are, however, asking patients and staff to adhere to the CDC guidelines which are aimed at protecting the general public from community transmission of COVID-19. By the nature of sleep medicine practice, fortunately our patients are not acutely ill and therefore are less likely to be exposed to COVID-19 at SNA than they would be at other healthcare facilities.

At this time, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are offering Telemedicine services. Click the link below to log in to our Telesleep portal for your appointment, and to read our full statement. Please contact our office with any questions.

Thank you,

Dr Samit Malhotra.
