About the Institute

In 1983, Dr. Sangal opened his practice in the Warren-Troy-Farmington Hills metro area of Michigan.

Three years later, he opened the Sleep Disorders Institute in Pontiac. He soon moved it to the Beaumont Medical Building in Troy. In 1992, he opened the Attention Disorders Institute. In 2009, the Institute moved to a new office in Sterling Heights. It is across the bridge from the Beaumont Hospital in Troy. Four years later, the Sleep Disorders Institute and the Attention Disorders Institute combined. We are now called the Sleep & Attention Disorders Institute. We treat patients of all ages. Whether you are one or 101, Dr. Sangal can diagnose and treat your sleep or attention disorder.

Sleep Disorders: Dr. Sangal opened the Sleep Disorders Institute in 1986. It was first accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) in 1987. It is the oldest continuously accredited sleep disorders center in Oakland/ Macomb counties in Michigan.

In our busy facility, we conduct in-center sleep testing. When you come for your sleep test, you will immediately understand why people come to our center. This isn’t a hospital setting. The rooms are decorated like beautiful hotel rooms. We have comfortable beds and bedding. We have the best equipment. We use the correct sensors. We know you aren’t joining us for a vacation. A sleep test is serious business. However, we want to make you as comfortable as possible. We can also help you with in-home sleep apnea testing. We are located in the corner of Sterling Heights, Troy, Rochester Hills, and Shelby Township. Warren, Clinton Township, and Macomb Township are nearby, as are Pontiac, Royal Oak, and Bloomfield Township. We treat all sleep disorders, not just sleep apnea.

Attention Disorders: The common attention disorder is Attention Deficit (Attention-Deficit Disorder or Attention–Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). People suffering from ADD or ADHD can be easily distracted. They often do not pay attention to details and cannot stay on task. They have trouble organizing activities. They may be forgetful and lose things. They may be impulsive or hyperactive. All of these symptoms can make home, school and work life difficult.

About 10 percent of males and two percent of females suffer from attention deficit (a brain disorder). It occurs in children and adults. Sometimes, hyperactivity improves with age. The inability to pay attention usually continues into adulthood.

In 1992, Dr. Sangal pioneered the use of 32-channel EEG in Michigan. In this test, sensors are placed on the person’s scalp. An EEG records brain waves. We map the EEG. This brain mapping can confirm a diagnosis of attention deficit (ADD/ADHD). It can determine which medicine will work for each patient. It is also useful in the evaluation of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).

Dr. Sangal will find a treatment that works for you. He will help you find success. If sleep tests show you have sleep apnea, Dr. Sangal may prescribe a CPAP machine. 90% of Dr. Sangal’s patients who use a CPAP machine for sleep apnea use it regularly. Other centers have less than 60 percent patient compliance rate with CPAP, according to available statistics.

He does not just improve your attention deficit symptoms. He controls them and brings them to normal.

However, if any treatment makes a patient uncomfortable, causes side effects or isn’t working, Dr. Sangal won’t give up. That’s what makes him special and different. At the Sleep & Attention Disorders Institute in Sterling Heights, Mich., your health and welfare are our primary concerns.

Sleepy, Tired, Fatigued? You May Have Idiopathic Hypersomnia

Are you tired, sleepy, fatigued? You may have Idiopathic Hypersomnia. Sleep medicine doctors often ignore idiopathic hypersomnia. Many sleep medicine doctors focus exclusively on sleep apnea.
