If you have trouble falling or staying asleep, if you wake others with
your snoring, or if you do not wake up feeling refreshed, you may be one
of the millions with a sleep disorder. Help is available to you at the
Mile Bluff Sleep Center.
When you are referred to the sleep medicine program, you will meet with
one of Mile Bluff's two board-certified sleep medicine physicians
at Mile Bluff Clinic. During the appointment, it may be determined that
you would benefit from undergoing a sleep study to further evaluate your
symptoms and sleep concerns. The study will take place at the sleep lab
in the Terrace Heights apartment complex.
The day of your scheduled sleep study, you are encouraged to bring comfortable
pajamas, your own pillow or blanket, or any other items needed to help
you sleep comfortably. In order to best simulate a typical night's
sleep, you are encouraged to follow your normal bedtime routines. Once
settled in your room, you can relax, watch TV, use the phone, or read
before falling asleep.
The accredited, state-of-the-art sleep center features two home-like bedrooms
with queen-sized, adjustable beds, flat panel televisions, and fans. There
is also a separate, shared bathroom in the center. Watch
Mile Bluff Sleep Center - Virtual Tour to see the sleep lab.
Throughout your study, a sleep technologist will monitor your sleep patterns
and can assist you if you need to get up for any reason during the night.
In the morning, coffee, tea and other light refreshments are provided.
After the study, a follow-up meeting with your sleep physician will be
scheduled at Mile Bluff Clinic to review the findings.

From Mauston, turn left into the first Mile Bluff driveway. Follow it to
