Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Diagnostic Tests and Sleep Studies

Diagnosing a sleep disorder depends largely upon the patient’s symptoms and may require a variety of tests. At Atlantic Health Sleep Centers at Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, Chilton Medical Center and Hackettstown Medical Center, we assess patients using:

  • Physical examination
  • Detailed review of medication use and family history
  • Sleep study, or polysomnography, if appropriate

In some cases, we may ask patients to keep a detailed history of their sleep patterns in a diary, journal or medical device for one to two weeks to aid in the diagnosis.

Sleep Studies

An overnight sleep study is one of the most valuable tests used by our centers.  It is a painless and non-invasive recording of the quantity and quality of an individual’s sleep. The data obtained from these studies helps us diagnose and treat sleep-related breathing disorders, movement disorders, difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep, and behavioral sleep disorders. Sleep studies can be performed at our sleep centers or in the comfort of your home.
