Can’t Sleep? Should You See A Doctor? An Illinois Doctor Clears Things Up.
What's Up, Doc? is a weekly health segment on WROK sponsored by MercyHealth. Each week they highlight a different doctor/healthcare professional to come on our show and talk to us about their specialty. It has turned into one of our favorite segments. All of our doctors have exhibited a "human" side that people don't always get to see with their physicians. We encourage you to check out some of our past episodes here. We've done about 30 of these segments highlighting everything from Lyme disease to hernia repair to finding a health care plan and everything else in between. We've learned a lot and hope you can too.
Our guest this week on What's Up, Doc? was Dr. Mohsin Khan a neurologist that specializes in sleep medicine. Dr. Khan was a wonderful guest with a very interesting back story. He grew up on a farm, moved to Pakistan as a child, then came back here to practice medicine and currently lives on a farm again. His kids have tiny goats to play with. Very cool.
After we got done with the goats, we got down to the business at hand and that is Dr. Khan helping people get better sleep. You know how important sleep is but it still isn't the top priority for some. Dr. Khan and his team can help diagnose you with any medical conditions preventing you from getting a good night's sleep and hopefully improve your life.
Some of the questions we ask Dr. Khan include:
- What issues does a sleep specialist treat?
- Is snoring a medical issue?
- How does sleep apnea relate to unexplained weight gain?
- Do untreated sleep disorders cause larger issues like heart attacks or strokes?
- Can you tell us about sleep study options for patients?
- How can a patient make an appointment with you or someone from your team?
If you're not sleeping like you know you should or can, take a listen to our interview with Dr. Khan and reach out to him if it sounds like he can help.
We thank Dr. Khan for his time and look forward to next week's guest on What's Up, Doc?
A new episode of What's Up, Doc? airs every Thursday morning at 8:35 on 1440 WROK.
