Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2009 -- Dr. Jonathan Greenburg, a Southern California sleep apnea expert, has found a way to help patients win the battle against the epidemic of untreated sleep apnea by offering special incentives to help them get the treatment they need.
"There are literally thousands of people in LA County alone who are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, who have had a sleep study done and tried using a CPAP machine which their Doctor prescribed for their treatment. Unfortunately, more than 50% of these people can't tolerate the CPAP machine and aren't aware there are other options that really work. So instead, they don't get treated with anything and suffer the devastating effects of their sleep apnea condition," says Greenburg.
Statistics show that obstructive sleep apnea affects over 18 million people; left untreated, clinical studies have shown sleep apnea increases the risk of stroke, heart attack, diabetes and obesity. OSA is a progressive disease, but fortunately, new treatment options, including Dr. Greenburg's patent-pending oral appliance, offer a more than 88% success rate.
Dr. Jonathan Greenburg, who has been successfully treating OSA patients, especially those who are C-PAP intolerant, for the past five years admits to spending "hundreds of thousands of dollars on radio advertising to get the word out." Effective immediately, Dr. Greenburg has decided to take a new approach to address the epidemic.
Now, through September 15, new prospective patients who schedule a free consultation and bring in a copy of their completed sleep study will receive a $50 gift card.
"Radio advertising has been a powerful way to get the word out and educate the public about the dangers of obstructive sleep apnea. But at this point, my concern is about those people who already know they need help. How do we help them take the next step and learn about realistic alternatives? We are prepared to give them a real incentive to sit down with a professional, preferably with their spouse or family member as well, to explain their treatment options," says Greenburg.
"If we can just get patients to take time out of their day and come in and see just how easy and affordable it is to get sleep apnea treatment that is not a CPAP machine, we hope to save lives. I am willing to reward them for taking the effort," to Dr. Greenburg.
To qualify to receive the $50 gift card, new patients simply bring a copy of their completed sleep study to their free 90-minute consultation. This incentive is available for a limited time, through September 15, 2009 and is only for new patients with a completed sleep study.
"You will leave knowing your treatment options and $50 richer" says Greenburg. "How much your life is enriched after treatment is priceless" he adds.
More than ever, health and finances are connected. People are under the perception that treatment is out of reach, which is why Dr. Greenburg is offering new, "Guaranteed Credit Approval" programs with financing options that make it more affordable than ever before.
