Took me seriously
| March, 12 2020 | for Stuart J. Benson, DO, FACOI
Had been complaining for awhile with various doctors about fatigue, but was resistant to sleep study because I knew I didn't have sleep apnea. Dr. Benson suggested wearing the pulse oximeter which did show low oxygen at night. A sleep study was required to treat that; so I completed the study. which showed I did not have sleep apnea, but did have nocturnal hypoxia. Did the appropriate testing to rule out lung problems so that nighttime oxygen could be ordered, which increased my quality of life immeasurably. I really appreciated his suggesting the pulse oximeter rather than insisting on the sleep study outright, working with me rather than just throwing his hands up due to my reluctance for the sleep study.
Thank you Dr. Benson!
