IamA Stanford trained sleep doctor, treated sleep conditions like apnea, insomnia, exploding head syndrome, restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy. AMA!
My short bio: Hello all. I went to med school at Tufts, then did my sleep fellowship at Stanford before creating and accrediting a sleep center focused on making tech professionals more focused and productive.
Then I gave it all up to start PeerWell. PeerWell is dedicated to helping people improve health through community, rather than waiting to get a sliver of a doctor's time. We take clinically validated medical advice and present it through a peer to peer relationship that we create based on similarity.
I am here to answer any questions you have about sleep, med school, starting a clinic, being a doctor in California, starting a company and everything in-between!
I can give general information on medical conditions here but I can't give specific medical advice or make a diagnosis.

Thanks for the gold!!! Wow. Seriously touched
Update: Closed Thanks for your time, but I've got to end the AMA. I am really touched by the volume of responses and sorry that I wasn't able to answer each one personally. I really appreciate the opportunity and will definitely do this again. For those who have direct messaged me, thank you, but I wasn't able to get to them in order to focus on the AMA. I wish I had time to do both. There were several topics frequently asked and to give more detail, I'll make articles on the PeerWell blog. Thank you! Nitun Verma MD MBA
