“The appliance that Dr. Doneskey created works very well and has eliminated my snoring.  In addition to getting more restful sleep, I can now sleep in the same bedroom with my spouse without awakening her.”

“I found the office environment very comfortable and inviting. The staff is
extremely helpful and knowledgeable and Dr. Doneskey is very professional in his demeanor.  He made certain that he understood my reasons for seeking treatment and that I understood his treatment plan.  Dr. Doneskey is an excellent communicator.”

“Before I met Dr. Doneskey, I tried the CPAP machine to treat my sleep apnea and a night guard to help my teeth grinding, but nothing worked. Dr. Doneskey helped me understand that my sleep apnea and tooth grinding are related problems and that my poor sleep was making my tooth grinding worse. Dr. Doneskey recommended his oral appliance because it treated my sleep apnea and helped stop my teeth grinding.  After using the appliance for several years, I believe it has saved my life.  The appliance allowed me to overcome sleep apnea, and I couldn’t live without it.  In fact, I liked it so much that I had Dr. Doneskey make me another one.”

“I was well known for crossing the center line and often falling asleep at the wheel.  Dr. Doneskey was able to treat my sleep apnea and save my life and the lives of others.”

“As an avid tri-athlete, I didn’t fit the profile of a sleep apnea patient who are usually older or obese. Since I wasn’t a typical candidate, I didn’t realize the harmful effects it could have on me and on others.  I also knew that I couldn’t haul a CPAP machine with me up a mountain during competition.  I had no idea that people were literally dying in their sleep due to apnea.  I realized that my snoring was something that shouldn’t be taken lightly.  Dr. Doneskey’s appliance is a no-brainer to me. It’s convenient and low-maintenance and that is what I need.” 

“The sleep deprivation caused by sleep apnea is terrible.  I couldn’t drive more than 45 minutes in the car without nodding off.  I was moody and irritable because I wasn’t getting proper sleep.  Rather than continue struggling with CPAP and a life fueled by caffeine my sleep doctor suggested I call Dr. Doneskey’s office in hopes that my sleep apnea could be treated. Thanks to Dr. Doneskey, it was.”

“Dr. Doneskey does a great job at communicating and offering straight answers and patient results that matter.  His oral appliance not only offers a proven CPAP alternative, but also the peace of mind that comes with knowing I am sleep apnea free.”

“My dentist referred me to Dr. Doneskey to treat my snoring and sleep apnea.  The snoring was never something that bothered me, but it certainly bothered my wife.”

“Unfortunately, I was not aware there were alternative treatments for my sleep apnea. I struggled with using CPAP for a long time and the inconvenience of packing it around with me was crazy. Dr. Doneskey is one of few who know how to safely treat sleep apnea problems with an oral appliance. It’s the ideal CPAP alternative for me.

“I finally told my sleep doctor I would die before I used my CPAP again.

“Dr. Doneskey is very good at what he does. He is extremely friendly and attentive and always available to offer ongoing support and supervision.”

“My husband and I both use Dr. Doneskey’s oral appliance.  We first came to the doctor through a referral from our dentist.” 

“Before we were diagnosed with sleep apnea, my husband and I were both unaware that we had it. His snoring had been keeping me awake and my snoring had been keeping him up at night as well.  It was a loud, continuous, and annoying sleep situation for both of us. Since we both started using the appliance, our snoring is completely eliminated.  We are both getting better sleep and our entire family is much happier.  We can both rest much easier knowing that our problems are accurately diagnosed and treated.  Dr. Doneskey’s oral appliance has improved the quality of life for me, my husband, and our family.” 

“Before using Dr. Doneskey’s oral appliance, I would only get a couple hours of continuous sleep before my apnea would wake me up.  Now, I can sleep for at least six or seven hours a night without a problem.”

“Dr. Doneskey always makes me feel like I’m really important.  He is a wonderful doctor. He is caring and compassionate, and his sense of humor makes every visit a pleasant experience. I am always very comfortable and the entire staff is warm and friendly. And, I never have to wait long.”

“My husband, who is normally quiet and reserved, raves about Dr. Doneskey.  He made the mistake of traveling once without his oral appliance and really missed it while he was gone.”

“My sleep apnea doctor referred me to Dr. Doneskey because I was not happy with the CPAP.  I hated the fact that it was on my face all night and sometimes, I would wake up and the mask would be on the floor.  I needed something that worked for me, and Dr. Doneskey’s oral appliance certainly has.”

“Since I don’t snore, my sleep apnea went undiagnosed for at least 25 years.  Doctors ran test after test and didn’t find anything and couldn’t explain what was happening.  As I got older, the apnea got worse and I really started to feel the effects. Sometimes, I would have to pull over and take a nap on the way to work.”

“I found Dr. Doneskey very professional, easy to talk to, and easy to work with. The whole office is that way and its nice dealing with people like that.”

“I recently had some dental work done that required my oral appliance to be refitted.  This investment is one I am happy to make.” 

“After using Dr. Doneskey’s oral appliance, SilentPartner™, I would not go back to the CPAP.”

“After using Dr. Doneskey’s oral appliance for more than two years, I don’t go to bed without it.  It contributes incredibly to the level of comfort I have when I sleep.  Without it, my jaw doesn’t feel the same, my teeth hurt, and my whole mouth feels uncomfortable.”

“Dr. Doneskey is excellent.  I always look forward to my appointments because he knows how to listen to my concerns.  He is an incredible problem solver.  Dr. Doneskey gets to the core issues surrounding my pain and discomfort and offers great treatments that work.  So often, doctors don’t seem to have enough time for me or don’t pay attention to my symptoms or take my pain seriously.  Dr. Doneskey always has time for me and is always ready to listen and offers solutions that work for me.”

“Dr. Doneskey is the perfect combination of being an excellent doctor and a great person. His staff is wonderful. I always feel welcome and that everyone is happy to see me.”

“Dr. Doneskey’s treatment for my TMJ has definitely changed my life.  I suffered from this problem for almost 20 years.  When I found a solution, everything got so much better.  Without question, I know that I am doing the best thing for myself by investing in treatment for my TMJ.  I use the appliance all the time, my sleep has improved, and I’m more emotionally comfortable.  I know that I am taken care of and that I will sleep well. I know that when I wake up in the morning, I can open my mouth without jaw pain and I won’t have a headache.”

“Dr. Doneskey is very personable and has a genuine interest in providing his patients with treatment options that offer results.  When I saw the CPAP, I knew it wouldn’t work for me.  Dr. Doneskey’s mouthpiece was exactly what I needed to treat my sleep apnea.”

“I struggled with sleep apnea for many years and wasn’t even aware I had it.  However, the loud snoring was disrupting my wife’s sleep and lack of sleep made me feel like I was always hung over.  Sometimes, I was so tired that I would fall asleep at the wheel, even while carrying on conversations with other people in the car.  Since using the mouthpiece, my wife has said that the snoring significantly improved and I feel much more rested and comfortable. I also know that my safety and the safety of others are no longer compromised while I’m driving.”

“Dr. Doneskey’s oral appliance has dramatically improved the quality of my life.” Thank you.

“Dr. Doneskey is very thorough and personable.  He’s engaging on a professional and a personal level.  He talks to you as a patient and as an individual, recognizing that lifestyle habits like stress, diet, and exercise can affect the situation. Dr. Doneskey makes it a priority to know his patients on a level that can lend insight to the root of the problem.”

“Dr Doneskey’s oral appliance helps tremendously.  His initial diagnosis and fitting was dead on.”

“My TMJ caused pain and popping in my jaw as well as temporal and stress headaches that lasted the entire day. As a result, I was taking many over-the-counter pain killers to cope.  Since using the oral appliance, the headaches are gone and I can move my mouth and jaw without pain.”

“From a customer service perspective, Dr. Doneskey and his staff are phenomenal.  The reminder call typically a day or two before makes a big difference. Visiting the office is always a casual and comfortable experience and I always feel welcome.  After my first few appointments, Dr. Doneskey would even call to ask how I was doing and check to make sure things were OK.”

“I enjoy Dr. Doneskey as a professional and as a human being.  He is effective, caring, and spends as much time with his patients as they need. Dr. Doneskey also has a great sense of humor.  Each time I go to the office, I know that I will be taken care of.”

“Because I was married late in life and my job kept me highly motivated and constantly stimulated, my sleep apnea went undiagnosed for quite some time.  However, as it got worse, I found myself incredibly sleepy.  Often, I would drive home from work and have to take naps at the stop lights. I tried CPAP to treat my apnea, but after a couple hours, it was on the floor.  Dr. Doneskey’s oral appliance is really comfortable and effective. Dr. Doneskey, thank you for all the help.

“Dr. Doneskey has a great personality and takes the time to chat with me. He asks lots of questions, reviews notes, and tries to accurately gauge if things have improved.  I like his oral appliance and use it to prevent my teeth grinding.  The design is great because it’s solid in the front, but when you get to your teeth, it goes behind them so there isn’t that heavy appliance in front of your teeth. It feels a lot better than other night guards I have tried.”

Before I met Dr. Doneskey I had not been feeling well for many years. My blood pressure was high, I was gaining weight, and my frequent headaches and jaw pain had me at the end of my rope. My doctor told me that Dr. Doneskey could help me and he certainly has!

On my first appointment he listened carefully and was very thorough and encouraging. Dr. Doneskey always gives me all the time I need. We talked about the quality of my sleep and what TMJ problems really are. In the end, I got sleep tested and was surprised to find out that I had severe sleep apnea. I still wonder why no one else ever mentioned this to me. Dr. Doneskey also helped me understand why I was getting headaches and explained to me that my poor sleep was part of the reason I was grinding my teeth so much. It has now been more than 2 years since I began treatment for my sleep apnea and TMJ problems and I am feeling great.  Dr. Doneskey’s oral appliance has treated all these problems and given me my life back. My blood pressure has improved a lot, I am no longer waking up all night and I can eat and smile again.
