More than 40 million people In the United States suffer from sleep-related disorders such as snoring, fragmented sleep and sleep apnea. However, only about five percent have been diagnosed and treated according to the National Sleep Disorders Research Center. Most people are not aware that sleep ailments not only affect daily activity and lifestyle, but also can be associated with other more serious medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, premature heart disease, stroke and even sudden cardiac death. In fact, sleep apnea, a condition causing patients to stop breathing during sleep, may be a risk factor for heart disease. At Oakland Lung and Sleep Specialists, an expert multi-disciplinary medical team will evaluate and treat all of types of sleep problems.
The absolute best pulmonolgist I have ever seen in my decades of having asthma and pulmonary issues. He is incredibly thorough and spends generous time with you going through history and asking questions - you leave understanding you medical issues and the path forward, I highly recommend Dr. Najar
Excellent physician and easy to talk to. She (Dr. Ela) spends as much time as needed and you never feel rushed.
I suffered from lack of sleep for 4 and a half years. After a friend recommended me to Dr. Najar, I began feeling better, I thought the idea of a sleep machine was a joke, but as I began using more and getting used to it, I knew it was there to help. I recommended Dr. Najar to anyone, I trust him with my own family, even my brother is his patient. He’s an amazing doctor and he takes his time and listens to your symptoms in detail and full focus. If you need a sleep doctor, go to Dr. Najar!
Excellent and thorough care. Explanations are clear and questions are answered. I completely trust Dr. Ela and recommend her at the highest level.
Professional, excellent attention to detail. Dr. Najar actually spent time with me to better understand my asthma. Most doctors just rush you in and out, HE does not. He is personable and explained everything thoroughly. I highly recommend Dr. Najar!
Dr Najar and his staff are VERY NICE! Super efficient! The only downside is that you have to leave a message if you have any questions, or need to change an appointment. Then you wait for someone to call you back, and you are not always available to talk if you are at work.
Honest, trustworthy, hardworking. I never have went to a doctor who is so hardworking and cares for his patients. I would recommend Dr. Najar to everyone I know.
