Award winning service
"CPAP looked after my symptoms but did nothing for my wife’s sleep pattern. Although at times we probably seemed like the patients from hell Michael Oko and his team never gave up on us. He empowered me to take control of my symptoms and achieve the weight loss that enabled me to come off CPAP therapy." Nigel and Isabel Swift
