sleep group

We work in close collaboration with the UCLA Sleep Disorders Center. If you would like to be evaluated for treatment at the UCLA Insomnia Clinic, please ask your current treating physician to refer you to one of the UCLA Sleep Disorders Center sites throughout the Los Angeles area (Westwood, Santa Monica, and Torrance).

If your doctor is a UCLA physician, the referral can be made by entering “Referral for Sleep Consultation” into the UCLA electronic health record program, CareConnect. On the referral order window, your doctor should check “Insomnia” and select one of the UCLA Sleep Disorders Center sites convenient for you (MED PENINSULA PULM, MSS PULMONOLOGY MP2, SLEEP MP3, or SLEEP SANTA MONICA).

If your doctor is not affiliated with UCLA, the referral can be made using the UCLA Physician Referral Service (call, fax, or email):

Please note that we only accept referrals made by a physician. Thus, we apologize for not being able to accept referrals made by yourself or non-physician therapists.

Our clinic provides behavioral treatments only without using medications. Furthermore, a frequent and consistent use of sleep medications may reduce the benefits of our behavioral insomnia treatments. Thus, if you are currently taking sleep medications, we will discuss the possibility of tapering off such medications with you.
