Sleep Medicine: Good Sleep for Good Health

Dr. Preetha Rosen Joins Gritman Sleep Clinic

Dr. Preetha Rosen treats the full spectrum of Sleep Medicine disorders from our Gritman Sleep Center.

“A good night’s sleep is very important for optimal well-being. Disruptions to sleep could impair not just your energy and daily functioning but could adversely impact your heart, blood pressure, diabetes, mental health, memory, body weight, even your body’s ability to ward off infections,” she said. “If your sleep quality or quantity is affected, please get help.”

Dr. Rosen encourages people to seek care if they snore or if they are not consistently refreshed by sleep, or if they routinely feel too sleepy.

“When life gets busy, sleep ends up on the back burner,” she said. “I like to help and guide my patients take part in their health care decisions and bring sleep back to the forefront because sleeping better would significantly improve their many different aspects of health.”

Patients can be referred to the Gritman Sleep Center or make an appointment, depending on their insurance plans.
Conditions treated by Dr. Rosen include:

    • Sleep apnea
    • Insomnia
    • Narcolepsy
    • Shift work problems
    • Restless leg syndrome
    • Sleepwalking
    • Dream enactment behaviors
    • Delayed sleep phase “night owl”

    She prefers to discuss different treatments with her patients and provide personalized, evidence-based patient care. She is also uniquely qualified to provide one-on-one counseling sessions with patients for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I). CBT-I can help identify and treat both acute insomnia and long-term insomnia in patients who have suffered for months or years with the condition or who have had limited results to medication.

    Dr. Rosen’s father, who was also a physician, served as an inspiration for her own journey into medicine. Board-certified in both Psychiatry and Sleep Medicine, Dr. Rosen comes to Gritman after practicing most recently in Washington and Oregon. She is joined in the region by her husband and two children.

    Dr. Rosen treats patients from the Gritman Sleep Center, a full-service sleep center located on the hospital’s third floor. Talk to your provider about a referral to the Gritman Sleep Clinic or call 208-882-2011 to make an appointment.
