Southeast Houston Sleep Medicine


Welcome to Houstonsleepmedicine

Millions of Americans suffer from sleep apnea and other sleep
disorders, including insomnia, narcolepsy, sleepwalking, restless leg
syndrome
, and chronic fatigue. The most common sleep disorder, sleep apnea, causes patients to stop breathing intermittently during the night. Untreated sleep apnea can lead to daytime sleepiness, car accidents, high blood pressure and even lethal heart problems.

Dr. Louis Hamer, a board certified pulmonary and critical care physician, became interested in sleep medicine because of the relationship between sleep and respiratory disease. He subsequently became board certified in Sleep Medicine through the American Board of Internal Medicine. He previously served as the director of two hospital based sleep labs and currently serves as the medical director for a private sleep lab in Pasadena, Texas. During the course of his career, he has treated thousands of patients with sleep apnea, insomnia, restless leg syndrome and other sleep related problems. He interprets polysomnograms (sleep studies), home based screens for sleep apnea, multiple sleep latency tests (used to diagnose narcolepsy), and maintenance of wakefulness tests, which are used to clear commercial drivers, pilots, and industrial operators for work. In addition, he helps patients adjust their medication regimens and habits to get the most out of each night’s sleep.

CONSULTATIONS - Dr. Louis Hamer offers consultations regarding a wide variety of sleep problems including sleep apnea, insomnia, sleepwalking and chronic fatigue. Although many patients are referred by area physicians, patients are welcome to call for an  appointment on their own. The standard consultation requires a history of problems related to sleeping, sleep routines, and general health information. During the history, we encourage family members to share their observations of the patient’s snoring, breathing or behavior during sleep. Family members often provide important information, because many symptoms occur during sleep, such as leg movements, snoring and abnormal breathing. Read More
