We provide evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders provided by sleep specialists and behavioral psychologists. Some of the conditions we treat include insomnias, circadian rhythm disorders, parasomnias and sleep apnea.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder Treatment – Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a preoccupation with an imagined physical defect in appearance or exaggerated concern about a minimal defect.
