The first step comprises of a thorough clinical assessment exclusively focusing on your
sleep complaints including the nature and duration of insomnia, nocturnal symptoms,
conditions and activities before sleep, sleep environment, sleep-wake schedule and
daytime function. Dr. Jaffery will utilize a series of sleep questionnaire filled out by

understanding of your conditions, sub-types and its severity. He will also use
approved procedures like “Actigraphy” and if needed “Polysomniography” for further
assessment.

validated medical and psychological treatment options. In order to exclusively focus
on Insomnia complains he will see you separately if other psychiatric conditions co-
exist. You will be referred out if your insomnia complains
seem secondary to other sleep conditions like breathing disorders.
