Dear Dr. Greenberg,

 

            I have been meaning to write for some time. It has been about a year since you fitted me for a Herbst appliance as a therapeutic measure for sleep apnea. I have been satisfied with and grateful for the device. It has pretty much eliminated snoring (my wife reports), and it has been quite effective in preventing apnea episodes. I would like at some point to return to the sleep lab for testing with the device, but my sense is that my breathing during sleep is considerably improved. I occasionally wake up and am aware that I have had an apnea episode, but much less frequently than previously. I am sleeping better, and the fatigue and drowsiness that I had been experiencing during the day have abated significantly. I credit this improvement largely to the Herbst appliance. An additional reason that I appreciate the Herbst appliance is that I tried the C-pap machine previously, and found it intrusive, cumbersome, and bothersome, while the Herbst appliance is easy to wear and maintain.

                

Thank you for your help in dealing with my condition.

 

 Sincerely,

Howard Nelson
