I went to a Dallas Tx. Concentra for a DOT physical, the sleep study scam was going full bore. (1) The med tech slapped a tape measure around my neck without taking off my outer shirt. She did not tighten the tape.
(2) The Dr. after a one hour wait, conducted a B. P. test with my arm extended up and stated that my BP was too high and refused to tell my what my BP was reading, "HIPPA VIOLATION".
She refused to retake the BP after a rest period, and stated that I would be scheduled for a sleep study at my espense. I advised the Dr. that I would not take any sleep study test and left the facility without signing any paper work.
I went home and placed a hippa violation complaint on the website and called a complaint in at that time.
Sleep studies are not ordered by the govt. and no one can force you to take one. Sleep APNEA is a farce and medical scam. The CPAP masks are a great way to get carbon monoxide poisoning, and effections. The entire process is designed to seperate you and the insurance companies from your money. Find a new Dr. a real Doctor. No one doctors office can hold you hostage and your CDL . ITs your life your living.
