For years, my husband’s snoring was getting completely out of control, it got to the point where I would really start to dread sleeping next to him. As you can imagine this had a terrible effect on our marriage. I had started researching online and found Dr. Pinkhasova and Affordable Dental, right here in Forest Hills! She was an absolute pleasure – after scheduling a sleep study, she diagnosed my husband with sleep apnea and begun the process of getting him fitted for a nightguard. Only 4 months later, and my husbands snoring is completely gone. So happy not to worry about his health and I can finally sleep through the night!
Since my late 20’s I can remember having periods where I could barely sleep through the night. I’d wake up every few hours completely gasping for breath, it was a nightmare. Luckily Dr. Pinkhasova was already my dentist, and I had no idea she could help me with my sleep apnea. Being in her care I have never been better, I can sleep through the night, I’m well rested, no more midday naps, no more migraines and no more constant fatigue!
I’ve been wearing my nightguard for 2 years now, thanks to Dr. Pinkhasova my sleep apnea is completely under control and my wife and family don’t have to worry about my health anymore. It feels great!
Dr. Pinkhasova runs a great office. She’s got a great staff, they’re all so sweet and kind, they’re well organized, and there’s never a long wait. Since being a patient my sleep apnea has been at bay, and I finally have my life back. Thank you Dr. P!
Sleep apnea really is a horrible issue to deal with. One of the scariest things is waking up in the night, completely unable to breath. Or going through your day like a complete zombie because you can barely sleep at night. Thankfully Dr. Pinkhasova and her staff at Affordable Dental are working with me on improving my sleep issues. I was just fit more my mouthguard to wear at night, and Dr. Pinkhasova’s staff offered me a number of helpful things to add to my bedtime routine. Its really been helping, I can’t wait to see the rest of my progress.
Both my dad and grandfather had sleep apnea, so I was sure at some point I would get it too. It didn’t help that I’ve put on about 60 additional pounds since college but thankfully as soon as I began showing signs I was introduced to Dr. Pinkhasova, a dentist working around the corner from my home in Forest Hills. She specializes in sleep apnea and helped me get on a plan to completely change my lifestyle around. She also prescribed what’s called a CPAP machine, for me to wear while I sleep. It was uncomfortable at first but it works like a charm.
I was diagnosed with OSA obstructive sleep apnea right around my 30th birthday (its been 3 years since) and I never really thought much about it. But recently my girlfriend and I moved in together and she’s noticed my snoring has gotten completely out of control, and I have moments in my sleep where it seems like I’m not breathing. This scared the hell out of me. I made an appointment with Dr. Pinkhasova immediately after a quick Google search. Within 3 weeks she has already helped me improve vastly, I am currently trying out a machine called a CPAP while I sleep and waiting on a mouthguard she has just prescribed that’s supposed to help open up my airways.
My sleep apnea was really taking over my life. I can barely function at work because I’m so tired, I find myself falling asleep randomly throughout the day. I can’t eat well or exercise due to the lack of energy. And my snoring is really outrageous. I was on a plane last month, and after dosing off, I had the entire cabin giving me dirty looks because my snoring was way too loud. Thankfully Dr. P at Affordable Dental just got the results back from my sleep study, and she has got me on a path to being symptom free. Taking her advice, I’m already noticing a difference – I can’t wait to get my mouthguard so I don’t have to snore so loud!
