Patient Scenarios. Consultations are usually requested by sleep patients outside of New Mexico who are seeking additional treatment advice from Dr. Krakow. As we specialize in helping insomnia patients and mental health patients with unresolved sleep complaints, these are the most common types of patients who contact us for additional care. Another group we offer assistance are those struggling with CPAP.
In some cases, patients will want to speak directly with Dr. Krakow; other times Dr. Krakow will speak only with the patient's current provider; and still other times, patients wish to hold a three-way conference call. Prior to the call, the patient would complete our standard intake packet and extended packet of questionnaires, which conserves the amount of time needed for the formal part of the consultation, because it gives Dr. Krakow a chance to review the sleep history in advance. The referring physician may also wish to send pertinent notes as well.
