Our practice

The Sleep Disorder Center of Louisiana, an American Academy of Sleep Medicine accredited practice, offers the area's only comprehensive sleep center. From your initial consultation to the final treatment plan and follow up, our caring staff is committed to helping you achieve peaceful nights and productive days.

The Sleep Disorder Center of Louisiana was established by Dr. Jana P. Kaimal, medical director and board certified sleep specialist, in March 2000. In August 2007 Michelle Zimmerman, N.P. returned to the Sleep Disorder Center of Louisiana after a stint at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Phillip Conner, a board certified sleep specialist, rejoined the practice in 2013 and in 2017, became medical director upon the retirement of Dr. Kaimal.

A CPAP director was added in March 2003 to focus on the set-up and initiation of CPAP therapy for patients needing treatment for sleep apnea.

For the convenience of our patients, our certified, registered sleep technologists perform sleep studies at night as well as some daytime testing, seven days a week.

Doctor referral not needed and most insurances are accepted.

Sleep rooms

Our state-of-the-art sleep center offers the latest technology in detecting sleep disorders. We have four bedrooms set up with all the comforts of home. Studies are completed every night of the week and conducted by licensed, registered Polysomnographic Technologists. Each technician cares for only two patients per night, allowing them to give you the close, personal attention you need and deserve. As you sleep comfortably in our full-size bed, your technician will monitor your breathing, heart and brain activity, blood oxygen levels and your body movements throughout the night. This process is painless and every effort is made to ensure your comfort and a good night's sleep.
