Upson’s Home Sleep Testing/ Sleep Lab Services treat sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy, periodic leg movements, and insomnia. Dr. Charles Wells serves as the medical director of Upson’s Home Sleep Testing/Sleep Lab Services, supervising and interpreting sleep disorder studies. Dr. Wells is board certified in neurology with subspecialty certification in sleep disorders.
