FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HENDERSON, Nev. – (February 1, 2012) Steljes Cardiology, a full-service cardiology practice, diagnostic sleep center and clinical research center, announced today that Dr. Alan Steljes has been certified in sleep medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
To become certified in the subspecialty of sleep medicine, a physician must pass the Sleep Medicine Certification Exam, demonstrate clinical expertise and have a track record of impeccable ethical behavior.
The Steljes Healthy Heart Sleep Center offers a comprehensive patient care program for the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders.
“A good night’s sleep is critically important to good health,” Dr. Steljes said. “More than 35 million Americans suffer from some kind of sleep disorder, and many people don’t realize that problems sleeping can lead to serious health risks like heart attacks and strokes.”
The link between sleep disorders and heart problems prompted Dr. Steljes to open the Healthy Heart Sleep Center in 2010. A 23-year Las Vegas resident, Dr. Steljes earned his medical degree from the University of Toronto in 1979.
