KROCK’s Josh and Sleep Apnea



I could talk to you for hours on end about obstructive sleep apnea; it’s dangerous, underdiagnosed, and can be easily treated. As much as you might enjoy my loquacious discourse on the subject, I’ve got something better for you: a testimonial from an actual patient. This isn’t just any patient, though. It’s a local celebrity you may already be familiar with. Have I piqued your curiosity? Continue reading to learn more.

The morning commute wouldn’t be the same without KROCK’s Josh. Recently, Josh visited my practice for a sleep study. His results revealed that, in addition to having a thunderous snore, he was experiencing apneic moments around 50 times per hour. That’s 50 times when he literally stopped breathing — every hour.

If you want to learn more, be sure to listen to the attached audio files from the KROCK morning show (one of which includes Daniel Baldwin of the “Baldwin Brothers”). Josh provides additional details about his test results and the process of being fitted for a simple dental appliance that could actually save his life.

The takeaway from all of this is that you don’t have to suffer with sleep apnea! My team is ready to take on this troublesome sleep disorder with you and put an end to the snoring, gasping for breath, daytime drowsiness, and other unpleasant side effects of apnea. Call us today to schedule an appointment.

Best,

Dr. Pearce
