Brian Rotskoff of Clarity Allergy Center tests for and treats adult sleep apnea and childhood obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) at his three Chicagoland offices.
Rotskoff provides expert diagnosis and treatment of allergic rhinitis (hay fever), asthma, adult sleep apnea, childhood obstructive sleep apnea, and childhood nasal allergies.
He also points out that the symptoms of sleep apnea in kids can be subtler than those of adult sleep apnea.
