BECKLEY, W.Va. (WVVA) – If you have not been able to sleep well recently, a new business up and running in Beckley is helping patients have a good night’s sleep.
Dr. Cuffy York previously worked as a dentist in Huntington, West Virginia, where he saw a need to help patients with sleep apnea —a common disorder that can easily be misdiagnosed as other things.
In his new practice on Harper Road, Dr. Cuffy will focus exclusively on sleep with tests that can be done for patients in the comfort of their own home.
“Right now, I’m the only provider that does sleep apnea. Denists can do it, but they are usually busy with root canals and fillings. This will help better people’s lives so I’m committed to it.”
In the U.S., more than 75 million people are diagnosed with sleep apnea, but Dr. Cuffy estimates that number to be much higher as many are never tested for the disorder.
