Insomnia Treatment
Healthgrades Review

“I went to Dr. Merchant to treat worsening insomnia. She was very easy to talk to and flexible about how to treat my sleep issues, accepting the things I felt I couldn’t easily change and coming up with things to try that worked with my lifestyle. She had me do a sleep log to get a better picture of my actual sleep patterns, and we came up with a plan which ended up working well. I was able to reset my sleep pattern and improve my sleep efficiency.” – 5 Star Healthgrades Review

“Dr Cole really helped me with my insomnia. He was patient explaining the science of sleep. You get out of this what you put into though. There is no magic wand. You have to do the homework he gives you.” – Diana W., 4 Star Google Review
