Expert Interview: Michael Goldman of SleepGuide.com


In this Expert Interview, I talk with Michael Goldman, Sleep Health Evangelist and creator of SleepGuide.com. He and I discuss important and surely controversial topics related to obstructive sleep apnea, including:

– Should patients read their own data or make pressure change adjustments on their own?

– How much say should patients have in choosing their own machine types or masks?

– Do patients really need a doctor’s prescription before undergoing a sleep apnea test?

– And much, much more..

  1. I have been using sleepguide for many years now and it is a great place for people helping people who have SA.

  2. Steve, I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed this teleconference with you and Mike. It was probably the best one I’ve been to yet. It’s making me re-think some pretty trenched-in beliefs I’ve been carrying around since I was diagnosed last year.

    I thought you did a superb job of drawing Michael out–he had a lot to say that needed to be said, and you provided him with exactly the forum he needed. And as usual, you were a gentle and thought-provoking interviewer.

    I have a deep appreciation for all you do for the sleep community, Steve. It’s remarkable, considering how busy you must be with your practice and your family.

    And honestly, I’ll never, EVER forget your kindness, your professional input, and your support to me last winter when I was so very ill. You were my only light in that long, dark tunnel for longer than you’ll ever know. Between you and me, I’m not sure I’d be here today if it weren’t for you. You were the only person who seemed able to hear what I was saying. To everyone…..so again, I thank you for all you did for me.

    As for these teleconferences, I hope you’ll continue them as you’re able, considering everything else you must have on your plate.

    I regret that I won’t be able to listen to your radio presentation tomorrow, 9/2. It’s scheduled at the same time as an appointment with my therapist. But keep up the good work. I doubt that you have any idea how far your words travel…..

    Fondly, Susan McCord sjmccord@gmail.com

  3. Dear Dr. Park,

    Thank you again for an excellent teleseminar with Mr. Goldman. Mr. Goldman’s recounting of his experience in pursuing a solution for his sleep situation is so similar to my own. I just went through getting on top of sleep apnea in mid- 2009. I was dianosed in my first sleep study as “severe”.

    I really appreciate you making all this information available.
