Dr. Barbara Burggraaff, MD
American Board of Otolaryngology and Sleep Medicine – Medical Director
Dr. Burggraaff, or as we call her Dr. B is a rare breed of physicians who is double board certified in the two most relevant specialties for treating snoring and sleep apnea: Otolaryngology (AKA, Ear, Nose and Throat doctor) and Sleep Medicine.
This allows Dr. Burggraaff the unique advantage of becoming intimately familiar with the relationship between how we breathe (and whether it’s through our noses or mouths) and how it relates into sleep. Her years of experience both as a surgeon as well as sleep lab director have culminated with a focus as our medical director. This role will enable her to train and oversee a team of clinicians and allow for the entire practice and patient base access to her knowledge and experience.
Dr. Burggraaff has a warm and caring personality. She is both a student and teacher in the art of mindfulness and meditation. The power of the breath and practicing awareness are some of the tools that she uses as non-pharmacological ways to help herself and her patients live better lives and get better sleep. Her journey has also led her on medical mission trips to Nepal which are deeply rewarding for her as well. When she is not in the office, Dr. B enjoys being outdoors and enjoying all that life has to offer. We are privileged and honored to have her as part of our team.
