IamA Stanford trained sleep doctor, treated sleep conditions like apnea, insomnia, exploding head syndrome, restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy. AMA Part 2!
My history with /r/iama: Hello all. Earlier this year I did an AMA, but underestimated the size of response I’d get. Since I still get questions PM’ed to me I am taking a day to respond to questions here so everyone in the community can benefit.
My short bio: I went to med school at Tufts, then did my sleep fellowship at Stanford before creating and accrediting a sleep center in the Bay Area dedicated to 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. We take clinically validated medical advice and present it through peer to peer groups that we match based on similarity.
Recently, at PeerWell I have been working with leading experts in psychiatry on a mental health program that improves sleep, focus and mood while helping people control stress and anxiety.
I am here to answer any questions you have about sleep, mental health, 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.
