Dr. Arora’s background in mental health offers a unique perspective on sleep and the treatment of sleep disorders.

“I feel truly blessed to have based my career on improving sleep; a quest that may be challenging but is worth the effort. With all the attention that we pay to our waking life, the ideal balance becomes shifted and often this is seen in the quality and quantity of our sleep. The potential hazards of sleep disorders are receiving much attention, and rightfully so. While this knowledge can be concerning, it also illustrates the tremendous utility treatment can offer. My approach, first and foremost, is based upon providing a fundamental education and perspective. With a foundational understanding of sleep, we are in a better position to begin to treat the disorders. My hope is our work together on this essential, but often neglected, area of life will help tap into the upside we all possess.” ~Dr. Arora
