While there at UCLA he was active in training other physicians in sleep disorders medicine. After six years he transitioned out of UCLA and into his current positions.

As a Neurologist, Dr. Simmons treats patients with a wide range of neurological conditions but he spends most of his practice evaluating and treating patients with sleep disorders. He has dedicated his career to provide the highest level of diagnostics testing to identify the full-spectrum of sleep disorders. He has been on the cutting-edge of implementing new technologies in the sleep laboratory, including esophageal pressure monitoring (Pes) to diagnose patients with the Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), a sleep disorder characterized by airway resistance to breathing during sleep.

Dr. Simmons evaluates pediatric patients as well as adults, and is among the few sleep specialists in the United States who can competently diagnose children who have Hyper Activity Attention Deficit Disorder caused by a subtle sleep disturbance such as UARS or Period Leg Movements of Sleep. Implementing state-of-the-art technology has been a passion of Dr. Simmons and he is actively working to implement new technology in the field of medicine and more specifically, sleep disorders medicine.

He is committed to teaching both medical professionals and the general public on sleep disorders. As the Director of the Sleep Education Consortium, Inc., Dr. Simmons coordinates ongoing conferences to enhance the knowledge of sleep disorders of the health care community and general public.

REST's sleep centers throughout Greater Houston provide treatment to patients suffering from snoring and obstructive sleep apnea disorders. For more information on how to stop snoring and obtain help for sleep apnea call us today at (832) 209-4670.
 
 

We treat the full spectrum of patients from infants to the elderly:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Patients with Fibromyalgia experience poor slow-wave-sleep; lack of this slow-wave-sleep is known to increase a person's susceptibility to pain. Also, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and morning Headaches/Migraines can be the result of repetitive sleep disruptions during the night.
  • ADD/ADHD
  • It has recently become clear that there seems to be an association between sleep disturbances and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). It is not hard to comprehend that disturbed sleep can lead to symptoms of ADHD or ADD.
  • Sleep Apnea
  • For years people have thought of snoring as nothing more than a simple annoyance during the night, but recent statistics suggest that this seemingly simple noise problem may in fact increase the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, and daytime sleepiness.
  • TMJ/TMD
  • In many people TMJ (or TMD) and clenching /grinding of the teeth in sleep is related to breathing problems (surprisingly to some). Learn more about how this is associated with snoring and sleep apnea, and what can be done to treat sleep related grinding and clenching.
