About NYC Sleep Lab

Our Mission


NYC Sleep Lab is the answer to the question, Where is the absolute best place I can go to finally treat these sleep problems that have been plaguing me for years?  Our Board-Certified Sleep Specialist, Dr. Carl Nicoleau MD, Ph.D., meets with every patient and performs a detailed history & physical examination to evaluate comorbid medical conditions such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases and other relevant medical conditions. Specific questions detailing symptoms of sleep apnea, and daytime symptoms indicating a sleep problem are elicited. 

A polysomnography, or sleep study, is performed either at home, or preferentially at the Sleep Lab to confirm the presence of sleep apnea. If sleep apnea is not identified, additional studies (including an eVox study) are performed at the office, in order to assess for a central nervous condition that may account for a non-sleep apnea cause of the patient’s complaints.

In other words: If you feel exhausted, upset, alone, or all three, and you need someone to help you navigate the terrifying lows of sleep disorders, we urge you to come and see Dr. Nicoleau immediately. His caring and calm manner, his passion for medicine, and the sheer vastness of his knowledge and expertise will most definitely get you back on the right track.
