Pediatric Sleep Disorders Care

Helping Children with Sleep Problems

Good sleep is essential for a child‘s healthy growth and can be a major concern for many parents. Sometimes, it can be very difficult for some children to get good sleep every night. Sleep problems are very common and can occur in about 25% of healthy children under 18. More than 60% of adolescents do not get enough sleep.

Dr. Karen Hentschel-Franks, a board-certified pediatric sleep medicine physician, leads our program. Our team of registered sleep technologists, a respiratory therapist and a medical assistant aim to provide the best treatment options for your child’s individual needs.
