Meet Our Team | Overview

At Boston Children’s Hospital, we consider you and your child as a very important part of the Sleep Center team and not simply recipients of care. 

We specialize in family-centered care, which means that starting from your first visit, you’ll work with a team of professionals who are committed to supporting all of your family’s physical and psychosocial needs.

Our Sleep Center at Boston Children’s brings together physicians specializing in pediatric neurology, pulmonology, and developmental medicine, pediatric nurse practitioners and nurses; psychologists; technologists and administrative professionals. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures that your child’s sleep problems will be approached in the most comprehensive and thoughtful way possible and that the full range of treatment options will be explored.
