Embracing Alternative Practice Models

Dr. Sahil Chopra and Dr. Andy Berkowski, GUESTS

The practice of sleep medicine is extremely diverse. While there are many who are a part of academic institutions, others have chosen private practice. One option that is becoming more popular is a direct-to-consumer, self-pay model. Here to give us a better understanding of some of these practice models are Dr. Sahil Chopra and Dr. Andy Berkowski.
