COVID-19/Coronavirus Update

Overview of the virus

COVID-19 is an illness caused by a new strain of coronavirus. It is believed to spread in ways similar to the common cold—such as through coughs, sneezes, or handshakes. We are following established infection prevention protocols and remain prepared to care for patients. We have trained and practiced for these scenarios. When you enter our clinic, you may see certain staff members wearing masks. This is a preventative measure. Patients who exhibit any respiratory symptoms will also be asked to wear masks and will be rescheduled for non-emergent appointments.

Important Information about your upcoming appointment:

Keep Your Scheduled Appointments

You should not avoid seeking necessary care out of concerns about COVID-19 and you should keep your appointments unless otherwise instructed by your physician. However, if you are experiencing symptoms or think you've been exposed to COVID-19, call your doctor before going to your appointment.

If We Need to Reschedule

Your Appointment
As things evolve, we may reach out to reschedule clinic visits or procedures. In the event that we need to reschedule your appointment, we will call you.

Keep Taking Your Medications

We recommend that you continue taking all medications, as prescribed, unless otherwise instructed by your physician. Contact your physician if you have questions. While you are visiting our office, please remember to follow the CDC’s guidelines concerning social distancing and hand hygiene to protect yourself and others.

EFFECTIVE 3/23/2020 - 4/9/2020:

We will be reducing our office hours and will be open from 8am-2pm. If you have an urgent matter outside of these hours, please call 911. If you need to speak with us about a non-urgent matter, please call our office between the hours of 8am-2pm.

It is estimated that over 70 million Americans suffer from sleep problems. The Sandhills Sleep Disorders Center is dedicated to helping patients work through their sleep issues and experience a better night’s sleep.

Welcome to Sandhills Neurologists’ Accredited Sleep Disorder Center

The Sandhills Sleep Disorders Center, directed by Dr. Giridhar Chintalapudi, is fully accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). Moreover, Dr. Chintalapudi is one of the few physicians in the state of North Carolina with board certification in sleep medicine. He and his sleep team are committed to delivering comprehensive sleep care, guided by detailed assessment and treatment plans.

Our patients do not have to endure excessive wait times for initial appointments. In many cases, we are able to offer same day evaluations for sleep and other medical problems.

Sleep Disorders

The Sandhills Neurologists Sleep Disorder Center treats over 80 individual sleep disorders, including:

  • Sleep Apnea
  • Shift Work Disorder
  • Insomnia
  • Narcolepsy
  • Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
  • REM Behavioral Disorder (RBD)
  • Sleep Walking
  • And many more!

Our Sleep Disorder Centers

Each of our three locations is equipped with a fully functional sleep lab center. While many of common sleep disorders do not indicate the need for an overnight sleep study, the Sandhills Neurologists Sleep Centers have the equipment, sleep technicians and facilities needed to perform overnight sleep studies when necessary.

Overnight sleep studies allow us to witness problems such as sleep walking, sleep talking and REM Behavior Disorder as they occur. This leads to better diagnoses and more informed treatment plans.

All of our sleep lab technicians are nationally registered by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine as well as the Board of Polysomnography Technologists.

The Sleep Supplies You Need

Sandhills Neurologists is licensed to provide Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and supplies for many of our Sleep Apnea patients.

CPAP is a small bedside device that sits at your bedside that delivers positive airway pressure through a mask that you wear during sleep. The air acts as an air splint to keep the airway open.
