He is very thourough. Did a neuro exam, reviewed my meds, asked about my personal life in the aspect of sleep hygiene. Reviewed the data recorded by my CPAP machine so I would know exactly how many hours I was ACTUALLY using the CPAP, and reviewed the care of the machine and the fit of the mask. Easy to talk to.
